Carly Pearce Unveils Sample of Unknown Track: ‘New Songs are Cool’

by Chris Haney

On Tuesday afternoon, country singer Carly Pearce shared a portion of a new song she’s been working on for her fans on Twitter.

The country artist released her latest self-titled album back in February 2020. Additionally, she released the single “Next Girl” back in September and “Show Me Around” in December. However, Pearce is back in the studio working on more new material, which she revealed a snippet of today.

Pearce posted a short 36-second video of a MacBook sitting on a desk playing a sample of the unknown track. The song seems to be about a relationship gone wrong, something that the singer can definitely relate to. Pearce and her ex-husband Michael Ray split up last summer, so the song’s inspiration could come from their divorce. The lyrics in the chorus are vague, but would make sense in reference to their breakup.

“I don’t want to want you, but I do. I can’t help this helpless feeling. Got at least a million reasons…,” the chorus says.

“New songs are cool….,” Pearce tweeted about the new track still in the works.

Carly Pearce Opens Up About the ‘Hardest’ Year of Her Life

In November, Carly Pearce called 2020 “single-handedly the hardest year of my life” during an interview with People.

The country musician married Michael Ray back in October 2019. However, the Nashville-based couple surprisingly announced their separation after Pearce filed for divorce in June 2020. Their marriage only lasted eight months.

The country singer didn’t share specifics as to why she filed for divorce. But she did say that she gave Ray plenty of opportunities to make changes for the betterment of their relationship.

“I did everything that I knew how to do,” Pearce explained. “It takes two people to work on something … When you love somebody, you trust them.”

“This was something that I really took time to make sure I was doing the right thing. It was very clear that this was not the marriage that I wanted,” Pearce added.

Carly Pearce says she’s still processing her failed marriage and that it’s been difficult. But her faith has helped her heal and begin to move forward.

“I truly thought I was gonna die,” Pearce claimed. “There were moments I seriously did not know if I could breathe. It was awful. It is awful. But I think that what’s been awesome has been trusting myself. And trusting what I have always known, which is God won’t take me through something that he won’t bring me out of or bring good from.”

The musician hasn’t given up on love and a fulfilled life though. Pearce says she still wants to find love within a healthy marriage and that she looks forward to having a family someday.

“I am hopeful,” she says. “I desire marriage… desire a family. Having divorce as a part of your story is hard. It’s a hard reality. It’s been hard for me to accept that and not be embarrassed or feel like I’m defined by that. But in reality, I know that I’m not. I’ve come to a place of just accepting that everybody has a journey, and this is mine — and the right person will be able to love me through that.”
