NASHVILLE, TN (January 13, 2020) – Nash Country Daily hailed CARLY PEARCE and LEE BRICE as “two of the best voices in country music” as MusicRow raved about their “sterling single.” This week, “I Hope You’re Happy Now” officially enters the Top 20 at Country radio on Mediabase and becomes her fastest-rising song to date. Amassing over 43 millionglobal streams, the collaboration ascends to No. 1 for a second consecutive peak on SiriusXM’s The Highway. As one of the 25 Best Country and Americana Songs of 2019, Rolling Stone Country proclaims, “the combination of their voices was electric, shot through with pain, and the title of the song took on a different meaning from each of their mouths — empathetic in Pearce’s case, bitter when Brice sang it. In a genre with a grand tradition of potent male-female duets, ‘I Hope You’re Happy Now’ was a true stunner.”
She wrote the track alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana, offering another preview to 13 evolutions of love on CARLY PEARCE. Due Valentine’s Day (2/14) via Big Machine Records, E! News, Rolling Stone and CMT are already embracing her sophomore album. Working again – and unknowingly, for the last time – with busbee, the pair maintained Carly’s roots and his contemporary sense as showcased on other advance tracks “Call Me” and “It Won’t Always Be Like This.”
Lighting a fire with her debut album EVERY LITTLE THING, the No. 1 PLATINUM-certified title track designated Carly as the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015. A loyal advocate of Country music’s legacy and future, she has performed at the Grand Ole Opry more than 75 times since her debut while the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum® partnered on Unbroken Circle: Exploring Country Music History with Carly Pearce. Adding slots on major tours with Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean, Carly has become “Country’s ‘it’ girl” (ABC Radio) while in pursuit of her childhood dream. Carly will join Old Dominion on the road May 14 (Greensboro, NC) and August 20 (Simpsonville, SC). For the latest tour dates and album details, visit carlypearce.com.
