The Band Perry performed at the Smokies Stadium in Sevierville on Thursday, Aug. 29. The country group is comprised of Kimberly Perry on lead vocals, guitar and piano, Reid Perry on bass guitar and background vocals and Neil Perry on mandolin, drums and accordion.

"It was amazing," said Stephenie Brown, graduate student in mathematics.
Performing songs from their latest album "Pioneer" and their self-titled freshman album, the family had a two hour set in front of a crowd of around 5,000 attendees.

"I watch them and listen to them all the time," said Angela Cardinale, Maryville resident. "Their energy is ridiculous."
