Opening Act Picked By Another McGraw

Tim McGraw‘s daughters have become quite the concert promoters. It was then 12-year-old Gracie McGraw who convinced her dad that Lady Antebellum would be a good opener for his 2010 tour.

This year, younger sister Maggie, also 12, campaigned on behalf of The Band Perry, a trio of siblings best known for its hit, “If I Die Young.” Ask The Band Perry, and its members couldn’t be more thrilled to get attention from a pre-teen.

“Apparently the little girls are good at picking acts,” says lead singer Kimberly Perry, 27. “We’re really grateful that Maggie picked us.”

“She’s our new best friend,” says bass player Reid Perry, 23, the middle child of the trio. The Band Perry is currently on Tim McGraw’s Emotional Traffic Tour and will join Keith Urban on the road in September.
