After finding themselves with a lot of extra free time on their hands, Carly Peace and Michael Ray have turned to the popular Netflix series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness to keep them entertained while self-quarantining in their Nashville home.
While the couple typically binge-watches shows like The Bachelor, Pearce admits they’ve become a bit obsessed with Tiger King.
“Now, our current obsession together is Tiger King. I don’t know how to even begin to explain what I feel about that,” she confessed during a recent interview with her record label. “It is out of control. If none of you have watched it, you have to watch it.”
The fact that we are #Quarantine the same time the Tiger King is out proves the universe has our back.

At the time of the interview, the couple had not finished watching the entire true-crime series, however, Pearce shared that parts of the show were “too much” for her to watch.
“Michael and I aren’t finished with it but there’s a few parts in it that like, I can’t physically watch. It’s too much for me,” she admitted. “What a weird group of people in society that you didn’t even know was real. I mean, I just can’t believe it.”
Michael Ray recently Tweeted about his love for the series, writing, “The fact that we are #Quarantine the same time the Tiger King is out proves the universe has our back.”
