Carly Pearce and Lee Brice just surprised fans with the announcement of a brand new duet.
The duet follows the success of Pearce’s “Closer To You” and Brice’s “Rumor,” and shares the personal true story of an experience Pearce once lived.
“I am so excited to share such a personal part of my story with one of the best male vocalists in our format,” Pearce shared. “Lee has the kind of gruff yet vulnerable quality to his sound that I envisioned for this duet and am grateful he agreed to join me. This song is raw and real, truly something I think many people around the world will relate to.”
“It was an absolute pleasure working with Carly on this track,” added Brice. “She has such a beautiful and powerful voice and definitely has a huge career ahead of her. Hope everyone loves this song as much as we did recording it!”
“I Hope You’re Happy Now” was co-written by Pearce alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana. The track, which was produced by busbee, will be available everywhere September 27.
Pearce’s “I Hope You’re Happy Now” and “Closer To You” will be included on her much-anticipated sophomore album, which is expected to release in 2020. Pearce, a CMA New Artist of the Year nominee, is currently on tour with Jason Aldean.
