The Band Perry Collaborating with Sheryl Crow & "Love the Way You Lie" Writer

Justin Nolan KeyThe Band Perry celebrated all their recent success on Monday by throwing a breakfast party in Nashville, and that's when the Grammy-nominated band revealed that they're already working on their next album with some interesting collaborators, including Sheryl Crow.

Noting that Sheryl has been "a huge influence" of hers, lead singer Kimberly Perry told reporters, "We actually have the opportunity to have a songwriting session with her, which we're excited about.  It's been a long time coming.  She's a hero of ours."  She added, "I just love, lyrically, she's so creative and completely unique to herself.  She's a strong lady.  She's a fantastic performer.  [I've] always have looked up to Sheryl."

The sibling trio also said that they've also collaborated with Skylar Grey, the singer-songwriter who co-wrote the Rihanna/Eminem smash "Love the Way You Lie" and who was also a featured vocalist on the Eminem/Dr. Dre hit "I Need a Doctor," as well as Diddy-Dirty Money's "Coming Home." 

"We're writing with a lot of different people, kinda doing it all over the place," explains Reid Perry.  The group's sophomore album is expected to come out later this year.
