I have decided that The Band Perry has got to have the best fans anywhere. I stopped into a small restaurant in Erwin, Tenn., this afternoon to pick up a big tea and take it back to the office for the afternoon. Erwin is about 25 miles from Greeneville, Tenn., which as we all know is the home of Kimberly, Reid and Neil – The Band Perry.
When I walked inside, I saw my first ever campaign poster looking for votes for anyone up for an award in any of the Academy of Country Music categories. We vote for a lot of things, ACMs, People’s Choice, lots of fan-voted competitions. But have you ever seen anyone with fans who are actively campaigning for their favorites to win? There was even a stack of fliers there that you could take, to remind you to vote when you got home.
I think this is awesome. Thanks, Band Perry fans! You made my day! I’m happy to say I’ve had the pleasure of meeting these kids on several occasions. They aren’t just talented country music singers/songwriters – they are also very nice kids. They are currently on tour with Tim McGraw, and I believe everyone will agree with me when I say they are headed to the top of the country music world.
That’s all for now – just wanted to share this with you all.
