The Band Perry goes to the dogs

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 – The Band Perry is going to the dogs. Well, at least Purina Dog Chow.

The pet food company is daring dog owners to try its dog food formula risk-free. In return, consumers can dare Purina Dog Chow back. TBP agreed to be the face of the campaign.

"From now until Monday, Feb. 28, we are encouraging dog lovers to visit and submit a dare of their choice," said Heather Gettys, Purina Dog Chow Senior Brand Manager. "It could be anything from building the ultimate dog house to refurbishing a neighborhood animal shelter to organizing a dog walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. If you ever thought, 'I wish Dog Chow would ...' here's your opportunity to see if your idea will come to life."

Purina Dog Chow will execute three dares - one per month in March, April and May - while awarding each of the 3 Grand Prize Winners $5,000 and a year's supply of Purina Dog Chow, as well as a two year's supply of Purina Dog Chow for one dog donated to a local animal shelter in each of the Grand Prize Winners' communities.

"The Band Perry is a perfect partner for the Double Dog Dare Contest. They are devoted owners of four dogs and, as siblings, they definitely can relate to the challenge of a 'double dog dare'," said Gettys.

The Band Perry (Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry) has a big hit with If I Die Young, which reached number one on the charts and was certified Platinum for sales in excess of 1 million copies. Their new single is You Lie. TBP is now nominated for a Grammy for Best Country Song and ACM Award for Top New Duo or Group. They will tour with Tim McGraw this spring.

CD review - Pioneer Sports fans may be familiar with the term "sophomore slump," where a player has an excellent rookie season, but then struggles mightily in his second. With "Pioneer," The Band Perry demonstrates that the phrase can carry over to the music world as well. Where the group's debut was quirky and showed real potential, their second release takes some artistic steps backwards while developing a more mainstream sound. The lead single and opening track, Better Dig Two, also ...
CD review - The Band Perry (full length CD) Image-wise, the siblings of The Band Perry are aiming squarely at the youth market. Sister and lead singer Kimberly has a Taylor Swift thing going on, with big curly blonde hair, while brothers Neil and Reid could be Jonases as easily as Perrys. Their musical style trends young, as well. There's an element of bluegrass in the music, but it's often more of a grace note on top of the pop-rock guitars and drums that remain the focus of the album. Lyrically, the songs also offer a ...
The Band Perry gets its name from the fact that all three of its members are siblings. There's Kimberly Perry, who sings lead, in addition to playing piano and guitar. Her brother Reid Perry is the bassist, while Neil Perry plays drums, mandolin and accordion. The centerpiece song of this five-track EP is the single If I Die Young, which is made all the more striking by the fact that it's also sung by a young lady. Being young is usually no time to contemplate death - leave that to the old folks. ...
