The Band Perry, a modern country-pop trio of siblings, has stepped in to assist a family devastated by tragedy earlier in the week.
On January 30 a fire destroyed the home of the Watson family in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. Nine of the eleven family members -- including eight children -- were killed in the fire. The two survivors, the father and one child, are in critical but stable condition at the burn center at Nashville's Vanderbilt Hospital.
The family had no insurance of any type, leaving a huge bill for nine funerals. The Band Perry, however, heard about this tragedy and stepped in to help. The trio has paid the funeral expenses for all nine victims. Additionally, the group is providing two weeks' worth of hotel expenses for relatives to be near the survivors in Nashville.
So many singers like to sing about telling people to change the world. It's nice to see one of those acts actually CHANGE the world instead of just singing about it.
