The Band Perry could have easily performed their crossover smash hit ‘If I Die Young’ at the 2012 ACM Awards tonight (April 1), but the trio instead chose to give fans and viewers something new. They performed their hot-off-the-press single ‘Postcard From Paris’ and it sounded so good, it was as though they’ve been rocking it live for eons.
