Got relationship issues? The Band Perry can help. At least, that’s the premise of the video for the trio’s rising radio hit “Chainsaw.”
“Chainsaw” is the latest single from the group’s 2013 album Pioneer. Written by Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne, Matt Ramsey, the song got a splashy public debut last month as the confetti-laced opening number during the Academy of Country Music Awards.
At the start of the song, a guy calls a company called Love Is Shady Tree Service that specializes in tree removal — he needs to get rid of a tree that he’d carved initials alongside his sweetheart, with whom he’s now split. The receptionist agrees. “Sometimes you just gotta cut your losses and bury the hatchet,” she says.
