MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - Support for the Watson family has been pouring in from all over the country after the family lost nine members in a fire, eight of them children.
Now a well-known country music band has signed up to help and it's the size of their hearts that is making headlines.
The Band Perry has offered to pay for funeral arrangements for the family. Their official Facebook page displayed one comment after another of people saying thanks.
But the band didn't stop there. Family members of the victims told our sister station in Evansville the group also paid for hotel rooms for three weeks for them to continue visiting the dad, Chad and 11 year old Kylie. They are both still at a hospital in Nashville recovering from injuries from the fire.
The members of The Band Perry are siblings. Kimberly is the oldest. They grew up in a town in Tennessee called Greeneville, which happens to also be the name the city really close to where the fire happened.
The band hasn't yet commented on the tragedy.
They are scheduled to perform at the Super Bowl pre-game show Sunday.
