FALL OUT BOY JOINS THE BAND PERRY ON THE "CMT CROSSROADS" STAGE FOR AN ALL-NEW INSTALLMENT OF THE NETWORK'S HIT PERFORMANCE SERIES

NASHVILLE - October 2, 2013 - Grammy-nominated, multiplatinum band Fall Out Boy is teaming up with hot country trio The Band Perry for an all-new episode of CMT CROSSROADS. From Nashville, the groups are collaborating for the first time together, swapping stories and sharing lyrics from their hit songs. CMT CROSSROADS: FALL OUT BOY AND THE BAND PERRY will premiere on Friday, November 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT only on CMT.

"Save Rock And Roll" is the fifth studio album from the Grammy-nominated band Fall Out Boy and features the multiplatinum hit "My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark (Light Em Up)" and the new hit "Alone Together." "Save Rock And Roll" debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 and No. 1 on iTunes in 27 countries when it was released in April. This is the band's second No. 1 debut; "Infinity On High" topped the chart in 2007. Hailing from Chicago, Fall Out Boy - Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums) - has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone and other prestigious publications. They have performed on "Saturday Night Live," "The Today Show," "America's Got Talent," "The Voice," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Conan," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and many more shows. After a sold-out spring/summer tour, the band is currently on a U.S. arena tour in support of "Save Rock And Roll."

Since releasing their self-titled debut album on Republic Nashville in 2010, The Band Perry has ascended to dizzying heights. Fronted by Kimberly Perry, and rounded out by her younger brothers Neil and Reid, the band has notched a string of hit singles, including the quadruple-platinum "If I Die Young" (which climbed to No. 1 on Billboard's Country and AC charts); the platinum "You Lie;" and the gold Country No. 1 "All Your Life." Their gold-certified sophomore release "Pioneer" features two consecutive No. 1 smashes - the platinum "Better Dig Two" and the gold "DONE.," which earned Neil and Reid Perry their first chart-topper as songwriters. The project, produced by Dann Huff, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and No. 2 All Genre, selling more than 130,000 in the first week and receiving acclaim from top critics across the country. Their latest single, "Don't Let Me Be Lonely," is already in the Top 30 at Country radio. The Band Perry has also enjoyed sold-out headlining dates and recently announced their first global headline arena dates - WE ARE PIONEERS World Tour. Additionally, they have taken over the American television airwaves with unforgettable performances on the ACM, CMA, Grammy and Billboard Music Awards as well as "American Idol," "Good Morning America," "The Today Show," "Ellen," "The Talk," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late Show with David Letterman." Their showering of honors include multiple ACM, CMA and CMT Music Awards, as well as GRAMMY, Teen Choice, AMA, ACA and Billboard Music Award nominations - all of which has cemented the sibling trio as one of the hottest acts in recent history. Currently, the talented trio is nominated for Vocal Group of the Year at the CMA Awards. For more on The Band Perry, visit thebandperry.com and "join the family" at thefansperry.com.
