The Band Perry‘s song “Live Forever” has been chosen as the official song of Team USA at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. The band has released an Olympics Edition of their music video for the song to commemorate the occasion.

The Band Perry appeared on NBC’s Today on Wednesday morning (April 27) to deliver a special performance of “Live Forever” on the plaza as part of the Citi Concert Series.

“We wrote [‘Live Forever’] about six to eight months ago, so we never imagined that we would write it, end up recording it, and then allow it to be part of the US Olympic team,” said Reid Perry.

“‘Live Forever’ is really about those moments that make you feel like you are going to live forever, and that really is the spirit of the Olympics and we are really honored to bring that song to these guys,” added Kimberly Perry.
