Carly Pearce knew instantly that she wanted to record her new song, “Closer to You,” the first time she heard it.” She tells us it was both the lyrics and melody that quickly pulled her in. [“I think there was a lot of things that drew me to this song. It made every part of my heart go directly into my relationship, which I think you want a song to make you feel something and you want to be able to connect to that. And it’s such a country lyric that paints just this beautiful picture to me. And the melody was very much something that I could hear myself singing immediately, and just all of the nuances of my voice that make me who I am, I could hear ‘em on this one.”] SOUNDCUE (:28 OC: . . . on this one.)
Carly's relationship with her fiance, Michael Ray, was also on her mind when she found "Closer To You." It's the first single from her upcoming sophomore album. No release date or title has yet been announced.
