The Band Perry performed at the 'Lionel Richie & Friends in Concert' taped at the MGM Grand Arena Monday night (April 2) in Las Vegas and presented by the Academy of Country Music.
The stage was decked out with a huge spaceship hovering over it - with white, yellow and orange running lights. The room was packed with fans, adding to the excitement of the Academy of Country Music's tribute to Lionel Richie, which will air April 13th on CBS.
The Band Perry shared a fun story about Lionel's tune, 'Penny Lover.' "There's a little trick songwriters use when composing a tune -- we'll use dummy lyrics. Lionel told us when he wrote this song, he thought the lyrics were dummy lyrics until a deejay urged him to stick with the original lyrics!"
Be sure to tune in Friday, April 13th (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
