The Band Perry Teaming Up With Fall Out Boy For ‘CMT Crossroads’ Episode
In a world where musical genres know few boundaries, country and punk rock have rarely intermingled. But that’s not stopping country act The Band Perry and punk rock band Fall Out Boy from coming together for an episode of ‘CMT Crossroads‘. The country music TV network show pairs country artists with musicians in a variety of genres in an effort to expand creative boundaries, and open the musical minds of its viewers. But in all the years CMT Crossroads has been around, this may be the most intriguing collaboration yet.
Fall Out Boy, known for heavy pop/punk rock hits like ‘Sugar, We’re Goin’ Down’ and ‘My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)’ is a stark contrast to The Band Perry. The country band, which consists of Kimberly Perry and her brothers Reid and Neil, are known for country chart-topping hits such as ‘All Your Life’, ‘Better Dig Two’ and ‘When I Die Young.’
Even though rock acts have been featured on CMT Crossroads frequently, this will mark the first time a band that originates from the punk rock genre has made an appearance on the show. It will be interesting to see how well received the Chicago-based band is received by country music fans. One thing’s for sure, The Band Perry seems excited about the collaboration, going to Twitter with this post and photo:
