Breakout country music star, Carly Pearce debuted her new music video directed by Mason Dixon for her current single “Closer to You”. The song was released back in November, and the video has been highly anticipated by fans. The song is also the debut single from Pearce’s upcoming sophomore album and a great preview of the music expected to be on that album.
“Closer to You” was not written by Pearce, but by Hillary Lindsey, Gordie Sampson and Troy Verges. However, the song resonated so much with Pearce. In an interview with Popculture.com Pearce said, “I didn’t write it, but as soon as I heard it, much like ‘Hide The Wine,’ my last single, it was one of those things that I connected with.”
In the new video filmed in Nashville, Pearce sets out on the road to find the one who has been running through her mind. Now if you follow the singer, you have witnessed her amazing love story with fellow country music star, Michael Ray. Ray makes an appearance in the video and fans are loving every minute of it. Featuring her fiancé was a no brainer for Pearce as their relationship was the reason she fell in love with track and the inspiration behind the video.
“I’ve got a fast car gassed up, sittin’ in the driveway” sings Pearce, who is seen looking out the window and suddenly is behind the wheel of her car. As the song gets even more intense, Pearce sings about her desire to “kill the space in between,” she accelerates and pushes the car to 100 miles per hour to reach the person she longs to be with.
Right now, Pearce is co-headlining a tour with Russel Dickerson, working on her sophomore album, and hitting the road with Jason Aldean on his “Ride All Night Tour” in May. You can catch Pearce when the “Ride All Night Tour” stops at Northwell Health at Jones Beach on September 6th.
