The Band Perry Bobbles Its Way Into Hometown Fame

Houston Astros’ single A team hosts a TBP night for hometown hillbilly heroes in Greeneville, Tenn.

We'd all agree, doncha think, that you are famous when you are turned into a bobblehead doll, right?

By that standard, The Band Perry has arrived—in the trio's hometown of Greeneville, Tenn., at least.

The minor league baseball team there, the Greeneville Astros (Houston's single A affiliate), hosted a Band Perry night Thursday (June 28). Not only did Kimberly and her brothers, Reed and Neil, throw out first pitches, and not only did The Band Perry play an acoustic set for 200 VIP guests, but each fan that night got a TBP bobblehead.

The money from that VIP concert—and a dollar of each ticket to the ballgame—went to the local United Way.
