The Band Perry Shares Their Views On Greeneville!July 30–
GREENEVILLE, Tenn., – Three of Greene County’s best ambassadors, Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry (better known as The Band Perry) have provided the Greene County Partnership’s Tourism Department a promotional video about Greeneville and Greene County, which, in less than 24 hours, has had close to 43,000 views after being shared by The Band Perry’s official Facebook page and the Fans of The Band Perry Facebook page.
The video, which was released late Wednesday, features the Perry siblings individually promoting their favorite past times while at home, as well as the fact that the scenic beauty of Greene County provides a perfect setting for relaxation and outdoor endeavors.
After the worldwide launch of their new album, “Pioneer,” March 30 in a concert on Main Street in Greeneville, the Perrys provided the video to the Partnership to assist the Tourism Department in making Greeneville and Greene County a tourist destination. The group launched their first album, “The Band Perry,” in a concert in the Partnership parking lot in October of 2010 and quickly became country music’s newest stars with such hits as “If I Die Young” and “Postcard from Paris.”
“Who could better sell Greene County to visitors and new residents than The Band Perry?” said Tourism Director Tammy Kinser. “Just like the recognition the community received during promotions of the downtown concert in March, a personal, heart-felt testament to their feelings about our community will make a lasting impression and go a long way in letting the world know more about Greeneville and Greene County!”
According to Partnership president and CEO Tom Ferguson, “With a tremendous amount of work and dedication, Kimberly, Reid and Neil have risen to new heights of fame, and because of their loyalty to this community, local residents feel like they are a part of their success. With today’s technology, their comments about this community have circled the globe, and placed Greeneville/Greene County on the global map!”
