When I first heard that Rick Rubin would be producing the new album from the Band Perry, this was my reaction...

If you're not familiar with Rick Rubin, here are just a few of the hundreds of albums that he has produced...

To call Rick Rubin one of the best producers in the history of modern music would be a slight understatement.  He's had his hands in so many incredible, and groundbreaking albums over the years.  That grouping above only scratches the surface.  We can also add in albums by Adele, Jay-Z, Metallica, Run D.M.C. and Slayer, just to name a few. 

Now, The Band Perry can add their names to his ever growing list.  Their new album "Pioneer" will be hitting stores April 2nd.  The trio left Nashville in their dust to travel across the country in order to work with Rubin.  Reid Perry said, “Our time in the studio with Rick was so incredible because, during our early sessions, he challenged us to set higher goals as songwriters."  I've heard so many artists say the very same thing about him.

I've been shouting from rooftops about how great I think their new single, Better Dig Two, is so I was already stoked for the new album.  Now that I know Rick Rubin is involved, I'm counting down the days until I get a copy in my hands.  Get ready for what could potentially be the album of the year.
