Some childhood fears you don't outgrow.

It's something country trio The Band Perry realized all too well when they tackled the follow-up to their successful 2010 self-titled debut.

"The sophomore slump," singer Kimberly Perry says seated alongside her younger brothers and band mates Neil and Reid Perry.

"We got started when Neil was eight and Reid was 10 and I was 15 and that word sophomore slump was kind of like a horror film around our house. We had an overwhelming responsibility to not be a one-hit wonder. And for the fans to continue to do what we do, deliver them something really honest and they could tell the growth in the band."

So far, their fears haven't been realized.
