Listen to The Band Perry on iHeartRadio

The Band Perry's Kimberly Perry says she really likes how country music is diversifying.  The singer calls the country format "American art," which can be expressed in a variety of ways. 

The Band Perry has included more rock elements on their new album, Pioneer, which is in stores today.  The group has a number of events scheduled this week to promote the album. 

The band marked release day with an appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America" and a feature on ABC's "Nightline."  They'll play an iHeartRadio Live show that fans can catch live at Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.  On Saturday the group will headline the Outnumber Hunger benefit airing on AXS-TV at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. 

The Band Perry will wrap up the week with a performance at the Academy of Country Music Awards.  They're also among the nominees for Vocal Group of the Year.  The event will air live on CBS Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
