The Band Perry Taking 'Creative Break' To Focus On Individual Pursuits

The Band Perry have announced plan to take a "creative break" to focus on their individual careers.

"We wanted to let you know that the three of us have decided to take a creative break as a group and each focus on our individual creative pursuits," a statement from the trio reads. "During this season, we will continue to support each other as artist and family in all we do."

"Thank you for making our childhood dreams come true!" the Band Perry added, signing their note as "Kimberly, Reid and Neil."

The Band Perry are composed of siblings Kimberly Perry (lead vocals, guitar), Reid Perry (bass guitar, background vocals), and Neil Perry (mandolin, bouzouki, background vocals).

They signed to Republic Nashville in August 2009 and released their self-titled debut album in October 2010. From this album, "If I Die Young" reached No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs and Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts and has been certified 6x multi-platinum.

Their second album, Pioneer, was released April 2, 2013. It produced additional No. 1 singles in "Better Dig Two" and "Done" plus the top 10 hits "Don't Let Me Be Lonely" and "Chainsaw."

Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton To Co-Host 2023 ACM Awards

The Academy of Country Music, Prime Video, and Dick Clark Productions have announced that global superstars Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks will host the 58th Academy of Country Music Awards.

The event, to be held on May 11 at 8 p.m. EDT, will stream live exclusively for a global audience across 240+ territories on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas.

The full rebroadcast of the ceremony and performances will stream the next day for free on Amazon Freevee.

This marks the first time Brooks will take the stage to host an awards show, coming ahead of his Las Vegas residency and off the heels of his world tour.

It's the second consecutive year that the show will be hosted by Parton, who is one of the world's most honored and revered artists of all time and follows her recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

"I am thrilled to return to host the ACM Awards, this time with my friend Garth," said Parton. "While I've had the pleasure of spending time with him throughout the years, I can't believe we've never had the chance to work together."

"In addition to getting to see all this great new talent in country music, I am excited to have the chance to premiere the lead single from my upcoming rock album on the show," she added.

"Anyone with Dolly Parton makes a fantastic couple," said Brooks.
