The Band Perry to Perform National Anthem at Cotton Bowl
The Band Perry had a banner year in 2011, due in large part to the crossover success of ‘If I Die Young.’ They will soar into 2012 with another heralded appearance. The trio of siblings will perform the national anthem at the AT&T Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas on Jan. 6, reports CMT.
The game is scheduled to take place at 8 PM ET on Fox and will feature a match between the Kansas State Wildcats and the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Band Perry will sing ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ beforehand.
Kimberly Perry and her brothers are of course stoked about the chance to sing the national anthem at a heavily viewed sporting event. Of the opportunity, the singer said, “Cowboys Stadium is one of the biggest and best venues in the entire world when it comes to country music. We are excited and honored to be singing our country’s anthem on such a national stage.”
Congrats to The Band Perry on this latest honor and fingers crossed that they turn in a flawless performance.
