It will be a family affair on the last night of the 2017 Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede.

The Band Perry, consisting of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry, are on the grandstand stage tonight to close out the four-day festival.

The group released its self-titled debut album in the fall of 2010 and quickly found success when the single “If I Die Young” reached No. 1 on the country and adult contemporary charts.

The followup album “Pioneer” spawned the hit songs “Better Dig Two,” “Done” and Chainsaw.”

Multi-time winners at the CMT Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards and the Country Music Association Awards, the trio has transitioned to pop in 2017. The first single from their new album “My Bad Imagination” was released in February. At the time, Billboard called “Stay in the Dark” a “lively piece of power-pop.”

The band itself said about the album and new sound, “Creating it has been the most exciting thing we’ve ever done. It’s led us to disrupt everything that was comfortable and familiar to us a short year ago. If there’s one thing we’ve learned in making it it’s this — being yourself matters.”

The Band Perry is set to take the stage at 8:30 p.m. Tickets, starting at $64, are available at http://www.mhstampede.com
