The Band Perry On Working As A Family
Siblings Kimberly, Reid And Neil Perry are a cohesive unit as The Band Perry, but behind the scenes they don’t always agree on everything. Kimberly and Neil tell us that Reid has a pretty fool-proof system for getting his way on certain things.
“One of Reid’s secret talents is what we like to call . . . (Kimberly and Neil) Working on the wear down. (Kimberly) Explain. (Neil) Working on the wear down is a process that Reid goes through. Basically, he forms an opinion in his hard head and he starts letting that thought continue to . . . (Kimberly) Simmer. (Neil) Simmer for about 30 minutes to an hour. He will just keep saying the same thing over and over again until we finally cave into his idea. (Kimberly) But sometimes we just cave in because we just want him to stop talking about it. And so . . . (Neil) That’s usually why we cave in. (Kimberly) Working on the wear down. When we’re weak, we’ll agree and he wins.”
One thing Reid didn’t have to wear down his siblings about is The Band Perry’s latest single. They all agreed that “Live Forever” was the best first choice to release from their forthcoming third album, which they’re currently working on.
