The Band Perry Enjoying Rio

Published On August 11, 2016 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

The Band Perry’s Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry are in Rio for this year’s Olympics. The family trio took in some of the events, including women’s gymnastics and some of the swimming competitions on Tuesday August 9th, cheering on Michael Phelps to his 20th gold medal.

The Band Perry’s song “Live Forever” is the official theme of Team USA.

“The Team USA chose ‘Live Forever’ as their anthem, their theme song. So, we’re hoping basically they’re listening to our voices right before they either go and shoot like the bows and arrows, before they do the power walking, before they do . . . (Kimberly) I’m pretty sure that Michael Phelps is going to be listening to Jay-Z, but I want to pretend that he is listening to ‘Live Forever’ on those headphones. (Reid) I’m sure he is. We’re actually going to go down there for part of the Olympics, so if we see him race, we’ll just start yelling it from the stands.”

On Wednesday, August 10th, the band performed at the Team USA House on Ipanema Beach.
