Kimberly Perry and Patrick Stump stood on stage huddled around a microphone, pens in hand, with a lyric sheet to The Band Perry’s current single “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely.”
(Patrick) Stump, lead singer for rock group Fall Out Boy,
was baffled — even with the help of a teleprompter — the first time his
group and Perry’s sibling trio attempted the soaring ballad in
rehearsal. While Kimberly Perry nailed the lyrics to her trio’s song, Stump didn’t even attempt the lines assigned to him and asked to go through the song with just Kimberly Perry and a guitar.
“There were a lot of rhythms that just came in sideways in my head,”
Stump said of “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely.” “By the end of it, that will
probably end up being my favorite song because that was the one we spent
the most time on.” -- Tennessean writer
The groups are collaborating for the first time
together, swapping stories and sharing lyrics from their hit songs.
CROSSROADS: FALL OUT BOY AND THE BAND PERRY will premiere tonight (11/29) at 11 p.m. ET/PT only on CMT.
