The Band Perry Offers a Sweet Treat to Go with Their Upcoming Album, "Pioneer"

Republic NashvilleThe Band Perry's new album, Pioneer, comes out Tuesday, but that's not the only sweet treat the group is offering their fans. The Perry siblings have also collaborated with Nashville bakery Gigi's Cupcakes on a new cupcake, called The Very Perry Chocolate Cherry. The cherry flavor is a nod to a line in the song on Pioneer titled "I'm a Keeper," in which the girl in the song wants to change her name to Cherry.

The Band Perry's Kimberly Perry tells The Tennessean, “I’ve always wanted Cherry to be my name. That girl in The Outsiders, Cherry Valance, she’s always been one of my favorite heroines in literature. So the cupcake was named after the song and we got to taste test.”

After tasting a few options, The Band Perry and Gigi's owner, Gina Butler, decided on a white cupcake sweetened and colored with maraschino cherry juice and filled with chopped cherries. Mounds of chocolate frosting and a cherry top it all off. The cupcake will be available on Fridays and Saturdays at Gigi's Cupcakes starting soon.
