“We’re Hopelessly Single,” The Band Perry Tells Nashville Crowd
Sibling trio christens new stage at the historic Ryman Auditorium.
'Twas a big night Monday (Feb. 20) for The Band Perry, as the sibling trio left Brad Paisley's tour for a day to christen a new stage at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium, which was the longtime home of the Grand Ole Opry.
And with a big night comes a big declaration about that most-often-asked question for Kimberly Perry and her two brothers, Neil and Reid: Are y'all dating anybody?
“We’re hopelessly single,” Kimberly told the crowd. “But we feel like the last two years have been us trying to win your hearts. We are eternally grateful to you for changing our lives.”
The Ryman has hosted music greats such as Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley in its 60-plus-year history, and the auditorium's stage was replaced for the first time last week.
Ryman general manager Sally Williams told The Tennessean that The Band Perry was an appropriate first act for the new stage because the trio's music gives a healthy nod to the past.
"Like The Band Perry, it’s what the Ryman Auditorium is all about, embracing the rich heritage and staying current with today’s music," Sally said.
