The Band Perry Reacts To Their Song Performed On American Idol

With their current single, “You Lie,” now in the Top 10 at Country radio, Republic Nashville’s The Band Perry got a big surprise last night when music executive and in-house Idol mentor, Jimmy Lovine, chose their Grammy-nominated hit, “If I Die Young,” for American Idol semi-finalist Lauren Alaina to sing.

“Hearing, ‘If I Die Young,’ on Idol was a proud moment,” said The Band Perry. “It’s so exciting to see a song we wrote in our basement walk its way onto one of America’s biggest stages. We wish Lauren much luck in the competition and thank her for lending such a sweet voice to our song.”
“If I Die Young,” reached #1 on the Country radio charts and was certified Platinum for selling over 1 MILLION copies.
