This means four more will be left politely applauding for someone the industry says had a little better year. Fans tend to not be as graceful in defeat.

The Band Perry, ‘Pioneer’ – Album Review

The Band Perry's new album 'Pioneer' is just as dramatic, yet dramatically more steady than their debut effort. The bar was raised and reached vocally, and songs like 'Done,' 'Forever Mine Nevermind' and 'Chainsaw' prove the family trio has lost nothing in terms of lyrical edge.
