The Band Perry's Hometown Show Was a Big Success; "Pioneer" Is Now in Their Fans' Hands

Republic NashvilleThe Band Perry's Pioneer album premiere show in Greeneville, TN last weekend was a big success with an estimated crowd of about 25,000 people. Some of those folks traveled from Iowa, Texas and even Canada.

Lead singer Kimberly Perry tells ABC News Radio, "It was a really precious thing to see our whole town come together to pull this event together. And really it was the spirit behind Pioneer -- lots of people coming together to do good things."

Now that Pioneer is in stores and online, Kimberly looks forward to seeing which songs their fans like the best.

"It's really a neat thing to see what the fans are going to make their own soundtrack," Kimberly says. "So, I can't wait to see that this week.

Though Pioneer is now in the hands of the fans, Kimberly admits she and her brothers Neil and Reid Perry would still be making changes to the album if they could. She doesn’t have any regrets about the choices they made in the 18 months writing and recording Pioneer.

Kimberly says, "We did have the opportunity to try out all of our ideas. We wrote some wild songs that ultimately weren't in the final 12. But we got to just really break our own boundaries, which was exciting."

Look for The Band Perry to perform on Sunday night's 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS at 8 p.m. Eastern. They're up for vocal group of the year honors.
