Trio Brings History-Making Crowd to Hometown of Greeneville, TN with a Free Show
Republic Nashville sibling trio The Band Perry gave a special performance in their hometown of Greeneville, TN, debuting new music from their sophomore album, PIONEER. An estimated crowd of 25,000 took to the streets of the small mountain town to see the famous residents and a chance meeting in the autograph line that stretched over a quarter of a mile down Main Street. Their new CD, PIONEER, which releases today, has already hit #1 on the iTunes Country chart!
The history-making crowd boasted a large number of out of town visitors, in addition to members of Greeneville’s 17,000 residents, who made their way to see “their” band. With an invitation posted via social media earlier that week asking if fans were attending and from where, responses came in from all over the United States, including Florida, Iowa, Georgia, Alabama, and Texas, among others. Fans even reported that they were making the trip from Canada!
