The Band Perry’s debut album has been a huge success for the band, spawning multiple No. 1 songs and several awards, including the CMAs for Single and Song of the Year for “If I Die Young.” Their latest single, “All Your Life,” is climbing the charts and the band is nominated for a GRAMMY for Best New Artist. The group is already thinking ahead to their next album and will spend a lot of their Christmas break working on their sophomore project.
“The album is starting to take shape and we’ve been taking writers out on the road all the time,” Neil Perry said. “It’s growing up just a little bit, not too much. But it’s gonna be really fun.”
TBP may have been writing and working on the album while touring the country, but the time off the holidays provide is exactly what they need to focus on the project at hand. “It’ll be the first time we’ve had to be still a little bit and I feel like, for us as creators, we have to decompress so that our imaginations can run wild,” Kimberly Perry said.
The band has been riding high over the last year, but they’ve also had their share of down moments. Kimberly says the album will reflect the ride they’ve been on and the changes they have experienced on both a professional and personal level.
“We’ve gotten to go through a mixed bag of experiences over the last twelve months,” she said. “Most sweet, and then even a few bittersweet because, obviously, with our lives changing, some of the relationships and friendships in our life have changed as well. We’ll be responding to all of those things and way different emotions in the project.”
Of the many rewards and accolades the sibling trio has received, it’s the GRAMMY nomination that has them most excited about the second album. “We are excited and honored beyond belief,” they said in a statement. “A Grammy nomination is like a gold star from the people you most look up to. As we begin our next album, this is a great vote of confidence. To both the music fans who bought our album (and told a friend!) and to the creative community that has welcomed us in; we promise not to let you down.”
The Band Perry will hit the road with Brad Paisley in January for his Camobunga! World Tour. The tour kicks off January 12 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
