The Band Perry Has An 'Extended Family' – of Furry Brothers and Sisters!
"Our pups are family," Kimberly tells PEOPLEPets.com. "We really do view Addie, Moses, Scout and Dakota as extended brothers and sisters."
These four-legged siblings – Addie and Moses are corgis, and Stout and Dakota are the 130-lb. Great Pyrenees – are too big to come along on the tour bus, but they do have run of the Perry family's eastern Tennessee home, where they keep each other, and the Perrys' father, company.
"They're so cute. They have these perpetual little smiles on their faces, and we really miss them when we're out traveling," Kimberly says. "Our dad stays at home and babysits them – and they kind of babysit him, too."
And when the band comes home, the pooches are always there to welcome them. Scout and Dakota are the "gentle giants," unaware of their own strength, while Moses is a "little bit of a diva" and Addy "has two speeds: fast, and fast," according to Reid.
The Band Perry has made a quick rise on the country music charts. They've received a Grammy nomination and four Academy of Country Music Awards, including Top New Artist and Top Vocal Group. The trio will also be touring along side Tim McGraw and Luke Bryan this summer. Though their success keeps them busy, the Perrys' love for dogs prompted them to partner with Purina to promote the brand's new Dog Chow dog food formula.
And, if all goes according to (Kimberly's) plan, there may finally be a dog tagging along on the Band Perry tour bus. "Kimberly has talked about getting another dog, a much smaller one, and bringing that out on the road," Neil says.
"We'll see," Kimberly says. "Maybe that'll happen in the next year."
