THE BAND PERRY STILL HAVE FAMILY ARGUMENTS

LONDON (AP) — The Band Perry consider themselves lucky that they’re family and get to experience the world together. Sometimes they even bring their parents on tour with them — and sometimes they wish their parents were with them. Singer Kimberly Perry says you’d think that with her brothers in their 20s and she herself now 30 they would have grown up, but they haven’t. She says she made a panicky phone call to their mother a few weeks ago because Reid and Neil were having “a brotherly debate” five minutes before going on stage. She says she needed Mom to talk them off the ledge and they figured out a way for both brothers to win.

DOOBIE BROTHERS GO COUNTRY

NASHVILLE (AP) — The Doobie Brothers are working with some of Nashville’s biggest names to do country versions of their hits. Brad Paisley, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, Zac Brown Band, Chris Young and Love And Theft have already signed on for an album remaking the Doobie Brothers’ songs. Michael McDonald has rejoined the Doobies for this project. A release date was not announced.
