Nearly instantly after their new single dropped, their fans began to circulate rumors that the band was doing something that the fans had been fearing since "If I Die Young" became a worldwide hit.
Their new single, "Comeback Kid" was officially released on August 1st, and since they inked their new deal with Interscope, they've been subjected to much criticism from fans for "going pop".
"Folks were freaking out," Kimberly tells the media outlet. "Here's what people forget, we were signed to Republic Nashville originally."
Republic helped take hits like "If I Die Young" to the rest of the world "after they grew up at country", she said.
They also reveal that the choice to sign with Interscope was to help position the band for international touring - something they are very focused on.
While they are not changing their style and associations toward the pop genre, don't be surprised if you hear their future hits on pop radio...
“We never said [we were going pop],” Kimberly insists. “Will you hear us on pop radio? I hope so, just like you did six years ago with ‘If I Die Young.’”
