Why The Band Perry Is Going Pop

The Band Perry jumped from the country charts to the pop charts with their massive 2011 hit "If I Die Young," but with their brand new EP called Coordinates they’re pulling a bit of a Taylor Swift and fully leaving their country roots.

But it’s not a contrived decision by the group to go pop. On the contrary, they’re just following their hearts. Kimberly Perry explains:

"We just want to be our most true selves and most excellent selves, creatively. We really feel like the world deserves that from us. That was the initial perspective we brought to country music; It served us well there, so I think it will continue to as we just make the best, most true music we can."

Coordinates is out now.
