Nashville, Tennessee (February 28, 2011) – Newly-announced ACM Award winners, The Band Perry, premiered their new video for "You Lie" today, which is now airing on CMT and GAC. "You Lie" is the third single from their Gold-certified debut album, THE BAND PERRY, and has become the trio’s fastest-climbing radio single to date on the Billboard Country Singles Chart.
The video forthe sassy anthem of a woman scorned was directed by David McClister and showcases rich Southern Gothic imagery. Throughout the narrative, Kimberly waits in vain for her betrothed at a sumptuous dinner party as brothers Neil and Reid plan a reckoning with the dishonorable gentleman. A range of emotions, from disappointment to frustration to vengeance, are on display in the "You Lie" video as well as a different look for the breakthrough Country band.
