(AUDIO) Being A Family Band Was Inevitable For The Band Perry

July 28, 2013

Growing up, Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry all played music, but they didn’t always play together. “In the early days we were in two separate bands because of the height difference,” explains Kimberly. “I’m five years older than Reid and he’s two years older than Neil. So both of the boys were this tall and I’m this tall. And we always knew that the family band was in the cards in the eventual plan but we had to wait for all the height logistics to even out.” But once they got together as a family band they knew it was meant to be. “I think doing it 13 years it kinda got pretty good at knowing how everyone works,” says Reid. “I feel like as a family, we’re able to have the hard conversations but still get along at the end of things.” Neil agrees. “I think being a family band makes it a lot more enjoyable. Like Reid said, we don’t have to sugar coat what we say.” And Kimberly laughs and points out, “Well they can’t get rid of you in a family band.”

The Band Perry just celebrated “DONE” becoming the second consecutive #1 single off their latest album, Pioneer.

Kimberly – “Well they can’t get rid of you in a family band.”

Neil – “It doesn’t matter what any of us do, we’re all with each other.”
