The Band Perry's Broad Musical Influences

If you listen to The Band Perry’s “Better Dig Two,” it’s obvious they don’t operate from a cookie cutter perspective when it comes to choosing songs or the way they deliver those songs, whether they write them or get them from other writers. 

A lot of that can be attributed to their varied musical influences. Kimberly admits, “I love soul singin’. So I love everybody from Aretha Franklin and Janice Joplin, all the way to the attitude of say, a Loretta Lynn, Patsy Cline, some of my very favorite singers.” 

Kimberly says one person she gets inspiration from is Bob Dylan. “I love Bob Dylan’s lyrics. They’re so visual and just have a really cool craft. They’re just some of my favorites.”
