LYRIC PREMIERE: The Band Perry's New Album Pioneer

Image of The Band Perry

In the catalogue of country trio The Band Perry, there's one lyric with particular significance: "If I die young, bury me in satin / Lay me down on a bed of roses / Sink me in the river at dawn / Send me away with the words of a love song." These are lines taken from the chorus of the band's song "If I Die Young," the second single from their self-titled 2010 album and launching pad to superstardom.

Written by lead singer Kimberly Perry, "If I Die Young" packs emotional punch, pairing beautiful melody with earnest lyricism. And on new album Pioneer, The Band Perry continue to write songs in the same vein as "If I Die Young," penning an album full of genuine, relatable lyrics. There's "Better Dig Two," a song about undying love; "DONE.," an ode to good, old-fashioned revenge; and title-track "Pioneer," a freewheeling track about listening to your heart and letting the wind guide you.
