The Band Perry - You Lie

The other day, I was on the phone with my mother telling her that I'm heading to a $20 concert in Niagara Falls in March...

"Who are y'all seein'?" She asked in her southern Tennessee accent.
"The Band Perry," I replied
"Hmm never heard of them," she unenthusiastically remarked.
I attempted to sing, "really? If I die young...".
"Oh my goodness, they're huge!  How'd you get such cheap tickets?" she asked.

Her voice gets a lil high pitched when she's excited so I had to move the phone further away from my decibel blaring soon-to-be broken eardrums.

A couple months ago, I posted their song "If I Die Young" with one small line saying, "The next Lady Antebellum, I think so".  Today, in Toronto, I heard another one of their hit single's, "You Lie".  This family band is destined for super-stardom and the only reason I got tickets for $20 was because that concert was booked back when practically nobody knew them.  Not so much the case now.  It's amazing how quickly a band can make a name for themselves.  Now, I have no idea how long they've been playing together or working for this success, all I can say is kudos to them!  They're opening up for the best this fall...Keith Urban.  The best concert I've ever been to in my life was put on by Keith Urban...and guess who opened for him that time?  Lady A.  Just sayin' and reinforcing "the next Lady Antebellum, I think so" statement.  Feel free to call my bluff in 2012 but I don't think that's gonna happen.

If you haven't checked them out yet, give "You Lie" a listen and tell me what ya think!
