Despite rumors that siblings The Band Perry were going pop, the group says emphatically that they aren’t leaving country, although they wouldn’t mind it if their new music played on pop radio stations.
The trio tells Taste of Country that their having dual record labels is similar to the deal they had with Big Machine Label Group prior to splitting with them in March.
“Folks were freaking out for a half-minute, like ‘Interscope, is that a pop label?!” Kimberly says.
“Here’s what people forget, we were signed to Republic Nashville originally. The reason that we did that deal was so that our partner in New York, Republic, could take songs like ‘If I Die Young’ after they grew up at country to the rest of the world.”
Despite being dedicated to country radio, the group does admit that having their music on pop stations really is a great thing.
“We never said it,” Kimberly says about the rumor they were going pop. “Will you hear us on pop radio? I hope so, just like you did six years ago with ‘If I Die Young.’”
The band’s new single, Comeback Kid, was released on Monday. Have a listen HERE.
