Carly Pearce climbs to Number Two this week on the country charts this week with her latest hit, "I Hope You're Happy Now," which features Lee Brice. She co-wrote the song with Luke Combs, among others, about an ex-boyfriend she spent years dating.
Carly tells us she certainly wasn’t trying to capitalize on his pain or exploit the relationship in any way. [“My first little thing out to social media, at the very end of it I say, ‘You know who you are, and truly I hope you’re happy now.’ And my mom called me immediately and she was like, ‘What are you doing?’ I was like, ‘Listen, people all go through things and I’m not trying to exploit this person but I’m also trying to write my story and write what has happened to me, and sometimes people become victims of our songs. But that’s the only way that I know how to tell a story.’"] SOUNDCUE (:26 OC: . . . tell a story.)
Carly made her 75th appearance at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on Saturday (June 6th) night where she and Lee performed “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”
