March 30 at 6 p.m. EDT is when The Band Perry will perform on Greeneville’s North Main Street, playing new music from the group’s upcoming album, Pioneer, along with fan favorites.  Following the performance the band will get up-close with audience members during an autograph session.

“Anyone who knows us knows how much we love our hometown,” Neil Perry said.  “We have been traveling so much the past several years that we wanted to bring our new music and our new show back home to the folks in Greeneville to say how much we appreciate their support, just like we did with our first record.  It’s our way of saying ‘thank you.’”

Presented by the Green County Partnership, the concert is being held to raise awareness for “Outnumber Hunger,” the initiative from General Mills, Big Machine Label Group and Feeding America to help fight hunger in local communities by making sure food banks have plenty of secured meals for folks in need.

“The Band Perry is the jewel in the crown of our community,” president and Greene County Partnership CEO Tom Ferguson said.  “Not only are Neil, Reid and Kimberly true ambassadors of the warmth and hospitality found in Greeneville and Greene County, they set a standard of professionalism that we feel is unmatched in the musical world.  We’re very proud to be a part of assisting General Mills in bringing ‘our band’ home to launch their new album.”
