The Band Perry Started as Kimberly and Her Roadie Brothers

Kimberly, Reid and Neil weren't always The Band Perry.

When they were preteens, Reid and Neil actually were unpaid roadies for big sister Kimberly, they told United Stations Radio Networks.

But Kimberly says that setup didn't last long.

“They were roadies for about two weeks before they caught the band fever themselves,” she said. “[At] 8, 10 years old, they started their own little rock ’n’ roll band and they had this adorable little lead singer and keyboard player, and electric guitar player. And their band would open for me and my guys all over the Southeast.

“So we immediately started traveling together as a family and then this moment came when all of our heights kind of evened up and we started out as The Band Perry.”
