This marks the first time that brothers Reid and Neil Perry earn a No. 1 single as songwriters, since they co-penned the song with John Davidson and Jacob Bryant.
“Neil and I wrote ‘DONE.’ with the spirit of the underdog. We've worked a long time to get here. Celebrating 15 years since our first family band show – it’s accomplishments like this that make all the hard work count for something. We still have a long way to go, but for today we are relishing the moment,” stated Reid Perry in a press statement.
His brother, Neil Perry, added, “’DONE.’ is our show opener. It's like song therapy for the fans and us. We all raise our fists in the air and shout a unified 'Ugh!’ From there on out, the rest of the night is like recess. We are so thrilled about this No. 1.”
The Band is expected to perform on the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) awards in Edmonton, Alberta, on September 8.
“We are proud of what ‘DONE.’ has accomplished for the three of us. Mostly though, we are proud of what it has meant to our fans. They've taken this lyric and made it the soundtrack of their breakups, their tough times, their struggles. We write for the people and we thank them for making this one No. 1,” said Kimberly Perry via the same press statement.
“DONE.” is their second consecutive No. 1 hit from “Pioneer” album following their two-week char-topping single “Better Dig Two.”
The Band Perry is nominated for two Teen Choice Awards for Choice Break-up Song for “DONE.” and for Choice Country Group.
