It's a little 14-square-mile town of 15,000 folks in northeast Tennessee. Greeneville is where U.S. President Andrew Johnson launched his political career, and the seat of the county where Davy Crockett was born.
Oh, and it's the hometown of Kimberly Perry and her two brothers, Neil and Reid. And The Band Perry continues to honor Greeneville, where the trio will launch its second album, Pioneer, with a free concert March 30.
"Well, we did it last time, when we released our first album. So, it's really great to kind of give back to Greeneville, [which has] given us so much," Neil explained to ABC News Radio. "You know, they've supported us through everything. So, this is our kind of thank-you to them."
Plus, the move ties in nicely with the new album, which drops April 2. "Pioneer is all about a journey and it's all about, like, to know where you're headed, sometimes you have to know where you've been," says Kimberly. "So, for us to begin the journey of having this album out in the world, we felt like our hometown, the place that we are starting from, was so important to have that be the premiere. So, it's kind of a cool part of the story."
