The Band Perry, Darius Rucker + More Will Perform at the White House
The seventh ‘In Performance at the White House’ concert will focus on the history of country music and feature artists young and old. Lauren Alaina and the Band Perry hold down the youth movement while Kris Kristofferson and Lyle Lovett will bring some perspective to the conversation.
Fans can watch Monday’s 7PM ET performance at WhiteHouse.Gov/live or on PBS. Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Alison Krauss and James Taylor will also perform. Earlier in the day, some of the performers will participate in a workshop at the White House, where 120 local students will have a chance to hear about the cultural significance of country music.
The visit caps what’s been a wildly successful month for Neil, Reid and Kimberley Perry. They won three CMA Awards last week in Nashville, including Single and Song of the Year for ‘If I Die Young’ and New Artist of the Year.
