The Band Perry consider themselves lucky that they’re family and get to experience the world together. Sometimes they even bring their parents on tour with them — and sometimes they wish their parents were with them.
Singer Kimberly Perry explained to the Associated Press their special sibling bond. You’d think that with her brothers in their 20s and she herself now 30 they would have grown up, but they haven’t. She says she made a panicky phone call to their mother a few weeks ago because Reid and Neil were having “a brotherly debate” five minutes before going on stage. She says she needed Mom to talk them off the ledge and they figured out a way for both brothers to win.
The Band Perry are currently advisors for Team Blake on NBC’s The Voice.
Kimberly Perry of The Band Perry is trying to squeeze in wedding planning while the band is on tour. Kimberly will marry Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia this summer.
She says they have about a 24-hour window to get it done because it’s in the middle of baseball season. Kimberly admits to the Associated Press that she delegates a lot of the planning to her mother and grandmother, but she’s a stickler about the music. She says it’s because she’s in a band and she has already threatened to call a rehearsal for the musicians so she can hear how everything will sound.
The Band Perry helped kick off the battle rounds on The Voice last night with Team Blake.
