The Band Perry Release ‘Chainsaw’
The Band Perry have released their latest single, ‘Chainsaw.’
Playing the role of the unstable ex-girlfriend in the song, Kimberly Perry sets herself up as a country singer not to be messed with. While the woman-scorned theme is about as new to country music as driving your pickup truck with the windows down, the band put their own spin on the sub-genre.
The lyric centers around a woman who won’t be happy until she cuts down the tree where she and her now-ex once carved their names in a heart with an arrow through it: “Love is shady, love is tragic / It’s hard to bury the hatchet / Holdin’ a chainsaw.”
The tune was penned by Shane McAnnally — who is also responsible for ‘Pioneer’ and ‘Better Dig Two’ — along with Josh Osborne and Matt Ramsey.
