The Band Perry, ‘If I Die Young’ – Video Spotlight
The video for the Band Perry's country chart-topping single 'If I Die Young' stays faithful to the lyrics of the song, envisioning a river-set funeral for lead singer Kimberly Perry.
As you can read in our Lyrics Uncovered article about 'If I Die Young,' the song initially seems to be a set of instructions for Perry's untimely and luckily, hypothetical funeral, but later reveals itself as a reminder to enjoy life and your loved ones every day.
This is all played out rather literally in the video, with Kimberly's brothers and bandmates, Reid and Neil, setting Kimberly adrift on a river in a canoe.
However, it's all just pretend, and the three siblings, all alive and well, return home to their home where a matronly figure awaits with flowers, seemingly on the verge of joyful tears. Hugs are exchanged all around, and ... that's a wrap!
The group recently won the Best New Artist award at the first-ever American Country Awards, which premiered Dec. 6 and featured performances by Lady Antebellum, Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, Reba McEntire, among others. Following their recognition, they performed 'If I Die Young,' which you can read about here. Also, check out our gallery of all of the ACA winners.
