The Band Perry Shoot ‘Postcard From Paris’ Video in New Orleans
This week, the Band Perry are hanging out in New Orleans, Louisiana shooting their music video for their single ‘Postcard From Paris,’ and from the looks of a photo they posted to Twitter, they seem to be enjoying themselves.
The sibling trio took to Twitter to share one photo from the shoot — a snapshot of the three of them at New Orleans’ famous French market and coffee stand Cafe Du Monde, which will apparently make an appearance in the video. “Postcard From New Orleans at Café Du Monde (Scene Two – 2:38pm),” they posted.
In the pic, the three Perrys seem to be dressed for a casual day, with both brothers in collared shirts and slacks and Kimberly in a cute top with sunglasses on her head. From the looks of their bistro table, they were able to enjoy an afternoon pick-me-up in the form of lattes or cappuccinos while working.
Earlier today (April 25), Reid took to the band’s Twitter feed and posted, “In New Orleans today shooting the music video for Postcard From Paris,” letting fans in on a slice of the action (though no beignets, unfortunately).
Just this week, the band found out that they have been nominated for a CMT Music Award for Group Video of the Year with their ‘All Your Life’ video. They’re also representing country music in the recently-announced Billboard Music Awards nomination for Top Country Album with their self-titled debut.
The band’s single ‘Postcard From Paris’ was written years ago by Kimberly, Reid and Neil while they were co-writing with renowned songwriters Jeff Cohen and Kara DioGuardi. In an interview with Taste of Country recently, Cohen offered the backstory of how the song came to be.
“Kimberly said, ‘Hey, I got an idea I started.’” he remembers. “She came in with the idea of your new boyfriend being like a postcard from Paris after seeing the one who really moves you … a postcard is a nice picture of the city but it ain’t Paris.’ She came in with a wonderful idea. We all just jumped in and started trying do justice to Kimberly’s idea.”
Now, that song is sitting at No. 23 on Billboard’s Country Songs chart, which it continues to steadily climb. Fans can look forward to an upcoming music video that promises to be equally as stellar.
