Carly Pearce and her boyfriend of two years, Riley King, have decided to go their separate ways. Page Six reports that according to a source, the couple broke up over her "trust issues" in the wake of her short-lived marriage to and divorce from fellow artist Michael Ray. Their marriage lasted just eight months before Carly filed for divorce in 2020.
Riley told the outlet, “Yes, things didn’t work out. Carly and I have parted ways and I wish her nothing but the best in both her career and personal life.”
Carly will release a new single called “We Don’t Fight Anymore,” with Chris Stapleton on June 16th.
She will likely perform the new track when she takes the stage at Nissan Stadium in Nashville tonight (Thursday, June 8th) as part of CMA Fest. Carly tells us: ["I've always dreamt of playing the big stage at CMA Fest, and I know that you can't do that unless you have hit songs, so being able to have four I feel like will just keep the energy really, really big and I think it will mean so much to me to have a full stadium sining words back to me that I wrote at a place that I've dreamt of playing my whole life."] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . my whole life.)
