See also

The Band Perry is more than just a great country music act, but they are also proving that they have a great heart. On Feb. 1, WBKO shared the news about how they are going to pay the funeral expenses for a family that lost eight people in a house fire.

The family is the Watson family and eight children plus the mother died in the house fire. The father Chad Watson and one daughter Kylie were able to survive the fire and are now in critical but stable condition at the hospital. Several different funds have been set up for the family.

The Band Perry has stepped up and offered to pay the entire funeral cost for the Watson family. When you look at the cost for eight caskets and expenses that is a lot of money they are offering to help out someone they didn't even know. This group doesn't seem like they want anything in return either. They have been on Twitter, but aren't even speaking out about this great act that they just did.
