In an era when fewer and fewer artists are able to achieve sales of 100,000 copies, The Band Perry's recent single "Better Dig Two" has been certified gold (sales of 100,000) and has sold more than 700,000 copies and band's song "You Lie" (from the group's debut album) has been certified platinum with sales over 1 million.

The Band Perry is made up of three siblings who still live in Greeneville, Tenn. The band's sophomore album will be released on April 2. The band is currently opening for Rascal Flatts during the last dates on that band's tour.
