You might assume that the three members of The Band Perry automatically got into the group because they're siblings, but that isn't the case. It turns out their parents put them through an audition process while forming the family band.

The Perry siblings tell the U.K. website Female First , "Our parents, who are the 4th and 5th invisible members of The Band Perry, told us when we were younger that we would never be a part of the band because our last name is Perry. We had to earn our spot on stage and grow into our various roles."

The Band Perry is now celebrating their 14th year on the road. They'll take the stage in Cullman, AL on Friday night.
