"BORCHETTA then played THE BAND PERRY's new single "Live Forever" and suggested that it would be the next Country to Pop act from BIG MACHINE. "
Thanks for the info D. I really like TBP and I think most of their songs sound more pop than country---but what is country anymore? It is a mixture of all genres and now Nashville is the hot spot for all genres of music. It used to be LA but in the last 5 years or so it has been moving to Nashville. If Carrie wants to sound more pop and move with the flow---I am all for it as the younger artists all sound poppish---even the so called country Miranda with some of her songs. I am all for a country/rock album from Carrie and TBP.
It looks like an '80s cover. First thing that popped in my head from the title "Live Forever" --- "Fame" -- "I'm gonna live forever. I'm gonna to learn how to fly." lol
^ I love the 80's songs. THEY were great songs and you could understand what they were singing. I think Carrie has said that she loves the 80's music. I could live with it.....LOL
I hOpe they don't go full blown pop. But if it's good pop like Taylor then I would be happy. But they are such an amazing country act.
ZBB is also releasing Beautiful Drug next, which I like but isn't country at all. From the same summit they said they're intending to push that to pop as well. I wouldn't have expected that from ZBB.
They are talented group. Excited for this new era. Whatever they do is fine with me as long as their music is good.
The single is produced by Dann Huff and RedOne (Lady Gaga). Should be...interesting.
teaser clip posted on facebook
HERE WE GOOO! New TBP single #LIVEFOREVER coming 8.14.15, music vid world premiere 8.15.15 on CMT! #TheBandPerry#TBP2015
premieres on CMT on 8-15
I'm pretty excited but kinda have mixed feelings from the teaser...hmmmm
I am interested in seeing that video, the little that is heard and shown is a style that Kimberly could crush that girl is a fierce performer.
From the Tennessean.The song, co-produced by country mainstay Dann Huff and pop music heavyweight RedOne, will be available for purchase on iTunes at 8 a.m. Friday, the same time country radio stations will start playing it. The Band Perry will perform “Live Forever” on ABC’s “Good Morning America” at 7 a.m. Friday, and CMT will debut the video -- that was filmed in La Vergne and features the cube -- on Saturday.
So I guess it's not being release at midnight.
Edit: It was definitely released on iTunes at midnight.

The Band Perry - Live Forever Official Lyrics
this is certainly catchy.Not the least bit country but catchy.
But thats the trend
I haven't listened to the song yet, but those lyrics sure don't read like a country song. They are very vague, much like a pop song. I have liked a lot of their music in the past, so I am disappointed if they are trying to transition over to pop.
I love this song! I could see it getting a remix to pop radio and being huge.
^ a remix? It's already pop
