With just 100 days before the 2016 Summer Olympics get underway in Rio de Janeiro, Team USA has chosen the Band Perry’s anthemic “Live Forever” as the team’s official song for the upcoming games. The Perry siblings — Kimberly, Reid and Neil, who co-wrote the tune with Jenna Andrews, Nadir Khayat, Jakke Erixson and Karl-Ola Kjellhol — will be attending the summer games for the first time.
Kimberly Perry, who says they all watch the global sporting competition “religiously,” noted that “‘Live Forever’ is really about those moments that make you feel like you’re going to live forever, and that really is the spirit of the Olympics.”
On Wednesday morning, the Grammy-winning trio performed the boundary-pushing song during a special appearance on NBC’s Today. Also included in their appearance were performances of the hits, “Better Dig Two” and “Done.”
Last month, the trio announced their split from the Big Machine Label Group. They are currently working on what will be the group’s third LP and have also released an Olympics Edition version of the “Live Forever” video.
