(AUDIO) The Band Perry Is Proud To Be A Family Band In The Country Music Family

September 22, 2013

When Miley Cyrus shocked the world with her “twerking” performance on this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, it was a reminder to The Band Perry how thankful they are to be in a family-friendly format like country music. “The country format is a family, among ourselves,” says Kimberly. “But, I also know that at our shows and at all the country shows I’ve been to, families come out to them. Our favorite thing is when we’re at a meet and greet, and we see a kid and her mother and the grandmother. Like, three generations.” She’s grateful to be part of a format that people of all ages can share and when she thinks about what country music has to offer she says, “It feels very like, blue collar and normal. It’s applicable. It means something. And it’s not all about the bells and whistles.” She doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with bells and whistles and she thinks the pop format covers that very well, “But,” she says, ”for country, it’s true blue and we’re just really proud to be a part of it.” The Band Perry’s new single, “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely,” is a perfect example of songs that mean something to listeners.





The Band Perry – part of family format :43

Kimberly – “The country format is a family, among ourselves, all in this room. But, I also know that at our shows and at all the country shows I’ve been to, families come out to them. Our favorite thing is when we’re at a meet and greet, and we see a kid and her mother and the grandmother. Like, three generations. And I think country music is more about sharing it with each other as friends and family..”

Neil – “Real life.”

Kimberly – “…and it just makes our format so special and yeah, it is about real life. It feels very like, blue collar and normal. It’s applicable. It means something. And it’s not all about the bells and whistles. There’s certainly a place for that and pop music does that. The best of the best if that’s what you are in the market for. But for country, it’s true blue and we’re just really proud to be a part of it.”
