To say Carly Pearce had a rough year would be a complete understatement.
Whether it was losing her producer and friend busbee, the COVID-19 pandemic taking her off the road, or getting a divorce.
“I think that a lot of things have happened to me, and I think that life sometimes throws you a lot of curve balls, said Pearce. “And I think that in those moments is when you really step out and take a leap of faith and shine.”
The pandemic has a lot of people thinking how they want to change their lives and that’s no different with Pearce who says is honing in on her own style of music.
“Losing busbee and really taking the time during quarantine to not be upset that I’m not on the road, but take kind of a look inside and say, ‘Who do you want to be in the format?’, added Pearce. “I’ve always wanted to be the country girl, and this has been a huge blessing for me to really step out and own that. And I’m obviously really grateful for that in a roundabout way.”
Pearce, who has two number one singles to her name (“Every Little Thing” and “I Hope Your Happy Now” – a collaboration with Lee Brice), is giving fans a taste of what’s coming. Her new single, “Next Girl”, is 90’s-country-inspired. Pearce is working on her third album with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. The upcoming album does not have a release date, but her second album ‘Carly Pearce’, was released on Valentine’s Day.
