THE BAND PERRY’S HIT, “IF I DIE YOUNG,” PERFORMED
BY AMERICAN IDOL’S LAUREN ALAINA


Nashville, Tennessee (May 19, 2011) – With their current single, "You Lie," now in the Top 10 at Country radio, Republic Nashville’s The Band Perry got a big surprise last night when music executive and in-house Idol mentor, Jimmy Iovine, chose their Grammy-nominated hit, "If I Die Young," for American Idol semi-finalist Lauren Alaina to sing.

"Hearing, ‘If I Die Young,’ on Idol was a proud moment," said The Band Perry. "It's so exciting to see a song we wrote in our basement walk its way onto one of America's biggest stages. We wish Lauren much luck in the competition and thank her for lending such a sweet voice to our song."

“If I Die Young,” reached #1 on the Country radio charts and was certified Platinum for selling over 1 MILLION copies.

About THE BAND PERRY: The self-titled debut album by the family band was released in October 2010 and just four months later, it was certified Gold. The trio’s “modern throwback” style combines classic Country with an eclectic infusion of Rock, Gospel and Soul. As songwriters and musicians, their sound is distinct and rounded out by the rare magic of perfect three-part harmonies. Their first single, the up-tempo “Hip To My Heart” was a Top 20 hit, followed by the inspiring, reflective “If I Die Young,” which earned a Grammy nomination, reached #1, was certified Platinum and racked up over 18 million views on YouTube. The Band Perry recently revealed their third single, “You Lie.” The sassy anthem of a woman scorned features wordplay that proves the pen is mightier than the sword. “You Lie” is TBP’s fastest-climbing radio single to date, already in the Top 10 on Country Charts. Having previously garnered Grammy, CMA and ACA nominations, The Band Perry recently earned their first ACM Awards for "New Duo or Group of the Year" and the coveted "New Artist of the Year." They also are up for 3 CMT Music Awards, including “Video of the Year,” “Group of the Year” and “USAWEEKEND Breakthrough Video of the Year.” Currently they are on Tim McGraw’s Emotional Traffic Tour and will join Keith Urban on the road in September.

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when...

But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
