Music fans will have a reason to trade their winter boots for cowboy boots in February when award-winning country trio The Band Perry perform at Grand Forks’ Ralph Engelstad Arena.

The arena announced the Feb. 9 show Friday, the same day the band kicked off its first global arena tour in Sweden.

While growing up in Mobile, Ala., siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry had always been interested in music. Kimberly, the oldest of the three, joined her first band at 15. Reid and Neil followed in her footsteps and eventually became Kimberly’s band’s opening act, according to the group’s website and publicity information provided by the Ralph.

It was not until 2005 that the siblings came together and started a band of their own. They released their debut album in 2010 and have scored No. 1 hits on country charts since.

While on their new tour, The Band Perry will debut their new album along with new songs, according to the Ralph’s announcement.

Opening first for The Band Perry will be Easton Corbin, whose singles “A Little More Country than That” and “Roll with It” were both No. 1 on the charts in 2010. Billboard magazine named Easton Corbin the top new country artist of 2010. Also performing will be Lindsay Ell.

Tickets go on sale Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. Customers can purchase them online at livenation.com, at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Ralph Engelstad Arena Box Office or by phone at (800) 745-3000.
