Exclusive: Behind the Scenes of CMT Crossroads with The Band Perry & Fall Out Boy!

Nashville Lifestyles was at the exclusive filming of a CMT Crossroads episode that united country megastars The Band Perry with emo rockers Fall Out Boy.

The Band Perry
Our initial reaction: “Huh?” But the instant the unlikely friends hit the stage at Rocketown on Oct. 2—riffing, bantering, and dressed in matching black ensembles—we thought, “Oooh.” Kimberly Perry’s feisty, forceful vocals were the show’s highlight, although FOB frontman Patrick Stump held his own wailing on Perry tracks like “Better Dig Two” and the beautifully somber “If I Die Young.” (After the latter, Stump quipped that he’d considered swiping Kimberly’s “…and I’ll wear my pearls” line.)

Sprinkled throughout the genre-bending set were chipper versions of Fall Out Boy hits like “Sugar, We’re Going Down” and the newer, anthem-y “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Alone Together).” The two bands—which we have anointed The Boy Perry—also were allowed to tackle one agreed-upon cover; we don’t want to spoil the fun, so let’s just say that FOB bassist Pete Wentz’s familiar eyeliner wasn’t the show’s only homage to Freddie Mercury.

CMT Crossroads: The Band Perry & Fall Out Boy premieres Nov. 29 at 9 p.m. CST.
