Grammy Award winning American country group, The Band Perry performed at Super Bowl City on Thursday, February 4. The sibling trio, comprised of Kimberly, Reid, and Neil Perry played on The City Stage presented by Levi’s® as a part of the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee’s free concert series.
Super Bowl City presented by Verizon, centered in Justin Herman Plaza on the Embarcadero at the foot of San Francisco’s Market Street, is designed to showcase the best the Bay Area has to offer, with interactive games, and activities that highlight the region’s technological prowess, culinary excellence and cultural diversity. Levi Strauss & Co. is the official founding legacy partner of the San Francisco Bay Area Super Bowl 50 Host Committee.
The Band Perry released their first, self-titled album in 2010. Hit song “If I Die Young” reached number one in the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs and has been certified quadruple platinum. In 2012, The Band Perry won the Academy of Country Music Awards for Top Vocal Group, and in 2015, the trio won a Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for “Gentle on my Mind.” In total, the group has released four Platinum singles in addition to “If I Die Young,” for “You Lie,” “All Your Life,” “Better Dig Two” and “Done.” Their third album, Heart + Beat is set for release in 2016. The siblings have been performing since they were children, originally with Neil and Reid opening for Kimberly. Soon, they united to form The Band Perry and joined a New Faces of Country tour in 2005. After being discovered by Scott Borchetta, head of the Republic Nashville label in 2008, they soon released their debut single, “Hip to My Heart,” which peaked at No. 20 on the country chart.
