The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young” will be featured on Glee’s Cory Monteith tribute episode, airing Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on FOX. The show’s Naya Rivera (Santana) covers the track, which won the CMA’s Single and Song of the Year awards in 2011.
Kimberly Perry says “Every time we sing it, it reminds us to make the most of whatever time we’re given…whether that’s two years or 20 years or 200 years on the planet as long as we’re making the most of it, it will be just enough. So, that’s sort of what we try to speak into the hearts of our audience but people are making it a soundtrack for them for whatever their needs are. And I love it when a song can work on different levels.”
