The Band Perry were recently named 2014 inductees at the Junior Achievement Tri-Cities TN/VA Business Hall of Fame gala of record attendance on Tuesday, May 13. The trio and their parents, who call Greeneville home, are the first laureate family to join the list of prestigious regional entrepreneurs and business leaders honored by Junior Achievement.

“We are proud to pay tribute to a family that stayed true to a dream now opening doors to success. Along the way, they have taken many opportunities to give back and make a lasting impact on this region,” said Cathy Salley, Junior Achievement president.

“Receiving this honor is very humbling to us. It is important for us to be good role models for young people so they will know that they can make their dreams come true. We continue to realize our dreams every day, but we also know that it requires hard work and determination. We hope we can set an example in the way we conduct ourselves as people and as business owners,” says The Band Perry.

Dr. Stephen Perry and wife Marie say they knew more than a decade ago that their children had talent. “We also knew what many young artists fail to understand,” says Steve. “If you have reasonable talent, that is half the battle. Time spent practicing is the other half. We did not get in a hurry,” he continues. “We have a saying, ‘Time spent in the practice room shows – and time not spent in the practice room shows.’”
