Carly Pearce Says CMA Song Of The Year Nod Is ‘Extra’

Carly Pearce heads into next week’s CMA Awards with four nominations — three for her chart-topping hit, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” along with New Artist of the Year. Carly co-wrote the song with Luke Combs, Randy Montana and Jonathan Singleton. "I Hope You're Happy Now" is up for Song of the Year, which honors the writers, as well as Musical Event and Video of the Year.

Carly tells us that being included in the Song of the Year category is especially meaningful: [“That one means extra. That’s on another level. You realize how important songs are when you do this and you realize how many great songs happen, and to think that I was recognized as a songwriter, solely, on something that was so special and so personal to me, that is very, very special to me because it shows something outside of just Carly Pearce.”] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . just Carly Pearce.)

The CMA Awards airs live from Nashville on Wednesday, Nov. 11th at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
