The Band Perry landed a big hit with “Done,” yet that word is barely in their vocabulary. MusicRow owner/publisher Sherod Robertson catches up with one of the industry’s hardest-working bands for the third episode of the MusicRow podcast.
Naturally, the conversation covers a lot of ground — from how they learned to develop a thick skin, their endless desire to grow and develop their art, and where their strong work ethic comes from.
As a family band made up of two brothers and a sister, Kimberly, Neil and Reid Perry also explain how they go about making decisions when it comes to important moments in their career. And for this trio, the visual representation of their music is key, so they describe how they incorporate spectacle into their live show.
Signed to Big Machine Label Group’s Republic Nashville, The Band Perry was named MusicRow’s Breakthrough Artist in 2011 and they have gone on to win many awards, including trophies from the CMA, ACM and CMT, as well as a Grammy earlier this year for their rendition of Glen Campbell’s “Gentle on My Mind.” With a new single called “Live Forever,” it’s clear that The Band Perry are in it for the long haul.
Sponsored by SunTrust Bank’s Sports & Entertainment Group, this episode of the MusicRow podcast is the third in a series. All of the MusicRow podcasts are available on iTunes.
