The Band Perry’s “DONE.” has reached No. 1 on both the Billboard and Mediabase Country Charts this week. Besides marking the trio’s fourth No. 1, “DONE” is also a songwriting milestone for Reid and Neil Perry, who co-wrote the single with John Davidson and Jacob Bryant.

“Neil and I wrote “DONE.” with the spirit of the underdog,” Reid said. “We’ve worked a long time to get here. Celebrating 15 years since our first family band show – it’s accomplishments like this that make all the hard work count for something. We still have a long way to go, but for today we are relishing the moment.”

“‘DONE.’ is our show opener,” Neil added. “It’s like song therapy for the fans and us. We all raise our fists in the air and shout a unified ‘Ugh!’ From there on out, the rest of the night is like recess. We are so thrilled about this No. 1.”

“DONE.” was also the band’s second consecutive multi-week No. 1 single in Canada. The song topped both the BDS Canada Country Airplay and Mediabase Canada Country charts. The group will perform on the Canadian Country Music Awards in Edmonton, Alberta, on September 8.

“”We are proud of what “DONE.” has accomplished for the three of us,” Kimberly Perry said. “Mostly though, we are proud of what it has meant to our fans. They’ve taken this lyric and made it the soundtrack of their breakups, their tough times, their struggles. We write for the people and we thank them for making this one No. 1.”

The band is currently on tour with Rascal Flatts’ Live & Loud Tour.
