The Band Perry Writes with Sheryl Crow

The Band Perry is hard at work on their sophomore album and it could include a song by one of their musical heroes. The trio had a co-writing session with Sheryl Crow earlier this year. While there’s no word on whether anything they wrote together will end up on the new record, Kimberly Perry gave Sheryl a rave review.

“A huge influence of mine has always been Sheryl Crow,” Kimberly said. “Lyrically she’s so creative and completely unique to herself. She’s a strong lady and a fantastic performer. I have always looked up to Sheryl.”

Sheryl isn’t the only female songwriter Kimberly admires. She also lists Matraca Berg (“Strawberry Wine,” “You and Tequila”) and Natalie Hemby (“Baggage Claim,” “Pontoon”) among her influences. Natalie served as the opener for The Band Perry’s Ryman Auditorium show.

“I’m in love with her voice, in love with her heart,” Kimberly said. “And we always really connect with male and female artists who bring the artist heart to their songwriting.”

The Band Perry is currently a special guest on Brad Paisley’s Virtual Reality World Tour. Watch their latest video, “Postcard From Paris,” HERE.
