The Band Perry Releases Lyric Video for New Single, “Better Dig Two“. We’ve been ready and waiting for new music from The Band Perry and last week they debuted their new single, “Better Dig Two“. I had heard about the new track earlier in the week, but the first time I heard it was live at the CMA Awards, and I’m tellin’ you that I was in love in the first few seconds. This trio has a knack for incorporating unexpected lyrics with a vintage feel and complex music to create awesome songs, and “Better Dig Two” is no exception! Check out the lyric video below and let us know what you think! Watch: The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two” Lyric Video. [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJeg3EGZBjM]
The Band Perry’s New Single “Better Dig Two” Released This Week! Even though they haven’t released a new album in two years, The Band Perry is still working on creating more great hits for their fans. Their latest single (available now on iTunes) uses dark humor to express a lady’s love of her man. For now, we don’t have a definite release date or name for The Band Perry’s next album. They’ve announced it will be available next year, but that’s really the only info we have except for this great new song! “Better Dig Two” Lyrics I told you on the day we wed I was gonna love you ’til I’s dead Made you wait ’til our wedding night That’s the first and the last time I wear white So if the ties that bind ever do come loose Tie them in a knot like a hangman’s noose Cause I’ll go to heaven or I’ll go to hell Before I’ll see you with someone else Put me in the ground Put me six foot down And let the stone say: Here lies the girl whose only crutch Was loving one man just a little too much If you go before I do I’m gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two Well, It won’t be whiskey, won’t be meth It’ll be your name on my last breath If divorce or death ever do us part The coroner will call it a broken heart So put me in the ground Put me six foot down And let the stone say: Here lies the girl whose only crutch Was loving one man just a little too much If you go before I do I’m gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two Dig two Ooh, ooh I took your name when I took those vows I meant ’em back then and I mean ’em right now, Oh, right now If the ties that bind ever do come loose If forever ever ends for you If that ring gets a little too tight You might as well read me my last rights And let the stone say: Here lies the girl whose only crutch Was loving one man just a little too much If you go before I do Gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig, uh! Heavy stone right next to mine, We’ll be together ’til the end of time Don’t you go before I do, I’m gonna tell the gravedigger that he better dig two I told you on the day we wed I was gonna love you ’til I’s dead

The Band Perry Debuts New Video for Postcard From Paris. The Band Perry sure is getting a whole lot mileage from their debut, self-titled album! The sibling trio has released another video for their most recent single from the record, “Postcard From Paris“. Its got a little bit of a vintage feel, and like most of their videos, the background tends to be pretty detailed while never detracting from the main attraction…Kimberly’s voice. Speaking of Kimberly Perry…is it just me or does she get sassier and sassier every time we see her? In this video she’s wearing sky high heels and some adorable ensembles! Check out the new video below and see what you think! Watch The Band Perry’s “Postcard From Paris”!
Complete List Of Country Wins at 2012 Grammy Awards! Another awards show has come and gone! The 2012 Grammy Awards provided quite a bit of visual interest from what was being worn on the red carpet to the strange sightings of who was sitting next to whom (we took special note of a photo featuring Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert seated next to Lady Gaga). There were a couple good performances, but nothing really surprising going on as far as winners are concerned. Taylor Swift dominated the country categories, and The Civil Wars received quite a bit of attention as well. I really wanted Zac Brown Band to win for “Where The River Goes” (From Footloose) in the Best Song Written for Visual Media category, but no such luck. Also, we were pretty excited about The Band Perry’s New Artist nomination, but they were passed up by another artist. Oh well, we know how amazing they all are! You can see the complete list of Country, Folk, Bluegrass and Americana winners below. Be sure to let us know what you think about this year’s winners! Complete List of 2012 Country, Bluegrass, Americana Grammy Winners Best Solo Country Performance Taylor Swift, “Mean” Best Country Duo/Group Performance The Civil Wars, “Barton Hollow” Best Country Song “Mean“, Taylor Swift Best Country Album Own The Night, Lady Antebellum Best Americana Album Ramble at the Ryman, Levon Helm Best Bluegrass Album Paper Airplane, Allison Krauss & Union Station Best Folk Album Barton Hallow, The Civil Wars

2012 Country Grammy Nominations Announced! We are just finishing up this year’s award cycle, and those for 2012 are already gearing up. Last week, the nominations for the 54th Grammy Awards were announced, and we have a complete list of the Country, Bluegrass and Americana artists receiving recognition. I am not particularly surprised that the nominations are dominated by this year’s usual suspects, Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean and Kenny Chesney. It is good to see Eric Church in the running for best country album for Chief, and I have no doubt country fans will be pleased that George Strait is recognized for his album, Here For A Good Time. I find it strange that of all of Taylor Swift’s singles, “Mean” was chosen for nomination in both “Best Country Solo Performance” and “Best Song”. I enjoy many of Taylor’s songs, but that is not the most country song on her Speak Now album. It is just a little odd that it popped up in two categories. Also, I am pleased that country artists are being recognized outside of the genre categories as well. The Band Perry is up against several artists from multiple genres in the “Best New Artist” category, and Zac Brown is receiving deserved attention for his original work on the Footloose soundtrack. The 54th Annual Grammy Awards will be held on “Grammy Sunday“, February 12, 2012, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and once again will be broadcast live on CBS from 8 – 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Take a look at the list below, and tell us who you think deserves to win! Is anyone missing from the nominations? Tell us that too! Complete List of 2012 Country, Bluegrass, Americana Grammy Nominations Best Country Solo Performance “Dirt Road Anthem“, Jason Aldean “I’m Gonna Love You Through It“, Martina McBride “Honey Bee“, Blake Shelton “Mean“, Taylor Swift “Mama’s Song“, Carrie Underwood Best Country Duo/Group Performance “Don’t You Wanna Stay“, Jason Aldean with Kelly Clarkson “You and Tequila“, Kenny Chesney featuring Grace Potter “Barton Hollow“, The Civil Wars “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not“, Thompson Square Best Country Song “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not“, Jim Collins & David Lee Murphy, songwriters (Thompson Square) “God Gave Me You“, Dave Barnes, songwriter (Blake Shelton) “Just Fishin‘”, Casey Beathard, Monty Criswell & Ed Hill, songwriters (Trace Adkins) “Mean“, Taylor Swift, songwriter (Taylor Swift) “Threaten Me With Heaven“, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Will Owsley & Dillon O’Brian, songwriters (Vince Gill) “You and Tequila“, Matraca Berg & Deana Carter, songwriters (Kenny Chesney Featuring Grace Potter) Best Country Album My Kinda Party, Jason Aldean Chief, Eric Church Own The Night, Lady Antebellum Red River Blue, Blake Shelton Here For A Good Time, George Strait Speak Now, Taylor Swift Best Folk Album Barton Hollows, The Civil Wars I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, Steve Earle Helplessness Blues, Fleet Foxes Ukulele Songs, Eddie Vedder The Harrow & The Harvest, Gillian Welch Best Bluegrass Album Paper Airplane, Alison Krauss & Union Continue reading Country Grammy Nominations
