Song is released ahead of Valentine’s Day 2020 album release
Massive tour dates, a history-making debut and notable accolades have continued to propel Carly Pearce as a mainstay talent, but with new music on the horizon, she is set for an even bolder 2020. She has unveiled more details surrounding her self-titled sophomore album ahead of its Valentine’s Day 2020 release Big Machine Records. Fans who pre-order digitally will instantly receive “Closer To You,” Top-30-and-rising duet with Lee Brice “I Hope You’re Happy Now” and “It Won’t Always Be Like This.” American Songwriter touts the nostalgic sentiments written alongside Sam Ellis and Natalie Hemby as a “heartfelt tribute.” Late longtime collaborator Busbee produced the 13 track project and contributed songwriting credits.
The only female country artist on Forbes 30 Under 30, Pearce joins her “I Hope You’re Happy Now” co-writer Luke Combs on the list – “proof positive that the future will be new, exciting and profoundly different.” She is a loyal advocate of country music’s legacy and future, celebrating 70+ invitations to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and a partnership with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum on Unbroken Circle: Exploring Country Music History with Carly Pearce.
