An Interview With Kimberly Perry on Motherhood, Her Husband’s Perfect Hair & “If I Die Young Pt. 2”

Since 2009, Kimberly Perry has captivated audiences with her showstopping vocals, lyrical eloquence, and superstar presence. As one-third of the Grammy® Award-winning superstar sibling trio The Band Perry, Kimberly Perry has racked up sales of over two and a half million albums, thirteen million singles, and over 2 billion combined streams. As a songwriter, her groundbreaking crossover #1 single “If I Die Young” (with its current 9x platinum status and over 200 million video views) helped Kimberly burst on to the world stage. As an entertainer, she’s performed on TV’s biggest shows, from late night’s most influential (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show With James Corden, The Late Show with David Letterman) to daytime’s most popular (Ellen, Good Morning America, The Today Show), as well as performing and presenting on multiple CMA and ACM award shows and specials. Despite touring the globe and playing on some of its biggest stages, her first love has always been songwriting, and it remains the force that drives her today. After signing to RECORDS Nashville and inking a global publishing deal with Warner Chappell and Songs & Daughters, Perry released her first song as a solo country artist – “If I Die Young Pt. 2” on May 5, 2023. The new single shows Perry revisiting her biggest hit over a decade later, abandoning the tragic cynicism of her youth and celebrating the life she has lived since and the bright future she has ahead. These themes of reflection and growth are central to her new EP, Bloom, which was released on June 9.
