Carly Pearce, who was nominated for CMA Awards New Artist of the Year after such a successful year with singles “Every Little Thing” and newest release “Closer To You.” As she is putting the final touches on her sophomore album, Pearce released a sneak peek of her new song, “I Hope You’re Happy Now” which features country superstar, Lee Brice, earlier this week.
“I Hope You’re Happy Now” is a honey-soaked, whiskey-drenched track which makes for such a painfully truthful, raw, and real song. Written by Pearce herself alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton, and Randy Montana, the team wrote a song everyone can relate to.
The newest CMA nominee shared in a press release, “I am so excited to share such a personal part of my story with one of the best male vocalists in our format. Lee has the kind of gruff yet vulnerable quality to his sound that I envisioned for this duet and am grateful he agreed to join me.”
The song starts out with a classic country sound as Pearce and Brice’s vocals quickly fill the airwaves. With the opening lyrics stating, “I said I don’t love you a little too late / But I guess there ain’t ever a right time,” this song is intriguing off the bat. Moving into the chorus, “Well I guess you found what you were looking for / I guess my heart ain’t worth it anymore // I’m a wreck, I’m a mess / And I ain’t got nothing left / So I hope you’re happy now,” it speaks to a situation we have either been in personally or seen someone we know go through.
The two shared a short video on their Instagrams earlier this week for fans to listen to and reading the comments, we can tell people were very excited about this duet. Hearing both great sets of vocals, this song will be one that hits you hard. “It was an absolute pleasure working with Carly on this track,” said Lee. “She has such a beautiful and powerful voice and definitely has a huge career ahead of her.” Take a look at the lyric video below!
Pearce is currently on the road with Jason Aldean’s Ride All Night Tour while Brice is headlining shows across the country up until the Christmas season.
