Carly Pearce announced she will release her self-titled sophomore album on Feb. 14, 2020.
“So much has happened to me in the last few years,” says Carly. “My fans have changed my life and given my music a home in this world. I grew up, let go of things that needed to go, fell in love, fell on my face, went through some hell and found ‘Carly’ fully for the first time ever. I’m so excited to announce my sophomore, self-titled album will be released on Valentine’s Day!”
Like her 2017 debut album, Every Little Thing, the new album was produced by Michael James Ryan—known professionally as busbee—who died on Sept. 29 from an aggressive form of brain cancer.
“This record is dedicated to my late producer, busbee,” says Carly. “It’s the last full record he made and one that I am so very proud of—thank you for bringing these songs to life. I can’t wait to honor you and hear/see how people connect to what we created.”
Carly’s current single, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which features Lee Brice, is No. 45 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after four weeks. Penned by Carly, Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana, “I Hope You’re Happy Now” will be featured on Carly’s upcoming self-titled album.
