Friday, June 16, 2023
arly Pearce, who has been on a role since releasing her break-up CD, "29: Written in Stone," takes a new step today with the release of the song "We Don't Fight Anymore" featuring Chris Stapleton.
The single, which goes to country radio on June 20 – was penned by Pearce and explores the complexities of a relationship.
"This song embodies a place that I think, if we are honest with ourselves, we've all felt at some point in a relationship. The distance that feels heartbreaking, yet you're also indifferent."

Pearce wrote the song with Shane McAnally and Pete Good. "We Don't Fight Anymore" marks Pearce's debut as a co-producer as it was produced by McAnally, Josh Osborne and Pearce. This is Pearce's first new music since her third studio album "29: Written In Stone."

Carly Pearce's self-titled sophomore album was fittingly released on Valentine's Day. Love is in the air throughout the 13-track collection. She opens with the breezy "Closer To You" and "Call Me. The album is chock full of notable co-write credits. On the latter, Little Big Town's Jim Westbrook and Phil Sweet have a hand. It feels like a love letter to fellow country singer and husband Michael Ray.
