Greeneville’s Kimberly Perry signs solo record deal with Columbia Records
The Band Perry’s lead voice is going solo.
Greeneville native Kimberly Perry has signed a new recording deal with Nashville Records / Columbia Records, according to a report from the Music Row publication.
The band posted a message on Instagram last week announcing the two-brother and sister team was taking a creative break to focus on individual projects.
“From the moment I met the team at Records, their appreciation for my journey and my vision for the future as a solo artist has been overwhelming,” according to Perry’s comments in the feature. “Everything came together so organically, and it felt right from the very start. I have wanted to live in Nashville since I was eight-years-old, but I only recently got to officially plant roots here. Being in this town of amazing, creative people for the past year brought me full circle to my original passions – country music and sharing meaningful stories. I am so lucky to have found such a wonderful and welcoming community here, and I feel equally lucky to have found the perfect partner in Records to get my new music out to the fans.”
The Band Perry had a number of hit singles plus gold and platinum albums beginning in 2010.
Kimberly’s brothers Neil and Reid are also working on separate projects.
