NASHVILLE, TN (March 5, 2021) – Five-time GRAMMY® nominated singer/songwriter Matthew West and chart-topping CMA Awards® winner and three-time ACM® Awards nominee Carly Pearce partner for a duet version of his No. 1 radio single, “Truth Be Told” that is available everywhere today. Spending four weeks at the top of the radio charts, the single was originally from West’s 2020 album, Brand New, and touches the important topic of authenticity, honesty and vulnerability.
“I’m honored to have Carly join me on this new version of ‘Truth Be Told,’ shares Matthew West. “Since her first single, ‘Every Little Thing,’ I’ve been a huge fan. There’s an honesty in her voice that convinces you she’s not just singing, she’s feeling every word she’s singing. It was a special thing to hear that same honest vocal delivery brought to this song about being honest. I’m so excited for the world to hear this duet.”
In addition to the single, the in-studio video of the recording debuts today – Watch here. And fans can get an extra glimpse into West and Pearce as he interviews her on next week’s podcast episode on The Matthew West Podcast.
“My faith is such a huge part of my life,” Carly Pearce says. “I’ve been praying for the right opportunity to show more of my heart, and ‘Truth Be Told’ felt meant to be. Not only am I such a fan of Matthew’s, this lyric has been the anthem of my life over the last year. Being transparent and vulnerable is how we connect with others. I’m so excited to be a part of this collaboration!”
