The Band Perry Scores Another Gold Single

The Band Perry’s latest hit “You Lie” has earned Gold certification from the RIAA for 500,000-plus paid downloads. This is the first single and hit for songwriters Aaron, Brian and Clara Henningsen.

“‘You Lie’ is full of spitfire and it’s our high-five to everyone who’s been the victim of a cheatin’ heart,” explains The Band Perry. “Only in Country music could a song about feeling fed-up be so much fun to sing. When we perform this one, we get a big ‘amen!’ back and we thank everyone who has joined in.”

“Plain and simple…this song has more hooks than a tackle box!” adds Jimmy Harnen, Republic Nashville President.

This follows the band’s huge hit “If I Die Young” which recently went Double Platinum. The self-titled debut album is moving about 11,000 units per week and has RTD sales of 655K (Soundscan).

Next up, The Band Perry will release love ballad, “All Your Life.”

TBP will headline a Samsung AT&T Summer Krush concert in Dallas, a portion of which will air Aug. 17 on Jimmy Kimmel Live! The Band Perry is currently on the road with Tim McGraw and looking forward to dates with Keith Urban (September) and Reba (October).

The sibling trio is also nominated for two Teen Choice Awards at the Sun., Aug. 7 show on Fox. Fans can vote at teenchoiceawards.com.
