The Band Perry returned to country music in 2016 with their brand new single “Comeback Kid.” Shortly after, the band announced that they were going pop. Their post on Twitter read: “To our fans – We’ve made an album for you. Creating it has been the most exciting thing we’ve ever done. It’s led us to disrupt everything that was comfortable and familiar to us a short year ago. If there’s one thing we’ve learned in making it it’s this – being yourself matters. It matters even when not everyone agrees that you should be or understands why it’s important that you are.”The album is called My Bad Imagination. It’s our very first pop album and tonight the first track will be out everywhere, it’s called “Stay In The Dark.” Listen loud.
Since then, the band has been quiet until news of the divorce broke. Stay tuned to see what Kimberly and her bros are up to next.
