NASHVILLE, TN (June 5, 2023) – Today, GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM-Award winning Country star Carly Pearce officially ushers in the next era of her musical journey with the announcement of her brand new single, “We Don’t Fight Anymore” (featuring Chris Stapleton), available everywhere on June 16 and officially impacting US Country radio on June 20 via Big Machine Records. Pre-save “We Don’t Fight Anymore” (featuring Chris Stapleton)HERE.
Written by Pearce alongside frequent collaborator Shane McAnally and Pete Good, “We Don’t Fight Anymore” was produced by McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Pearce. Marking the first new music since her critically-acclaimed third studio album 29: WRITTEN IN STONE, the single is an authentic display of Pearce’s musical sensibilities as she leans into her sound and cements her place as a transcendent storyteller.
“I’ve always wanted to write music that makes people feel something – whether that is feeling seen, less alone, happy or even uncomfortable. ‘We Don’t Fight Anymore’ felt like I was writing one of those stories that, whether or not we want to include it in our social media highlight reel, we’ve either been there or are living there right now,” Pearce says of the song’s origins. “Having Chris Stapleton join me on this song was a dream come true and he unlocked an element to the story that I didn’t even know it needed.”
In both celebration of capping her 29 chapter with her fourth career No. 1 song – the PLATINUM-certified “What He Didn’t Do” – and a nod to soon stepping into her next era, Pearce had fans and social media abuzz with a teaser post on Instagram last Wednesday that featured the blurred out “We Don’t Fight Anymore” single artwork. She continued the digital Easter eggs for eagle-eyed fans with additional posts throughout the weekend that steadily became more clear each day to unveil a new aspect of the song, culminating with her full reveal this morning.
Following today’s news, Pearce is gearing up for a packed week in Nashville during CMA Fest, where she will perform on the main stage at Nissan Stadium on June 8 at 9:55P CT.
Ahead of the performance – and in the true spirit of CMA Fest – Pearce is giving her fans the ultimate access with the opportunity to shop her closet at the 2nd annual Carly’s Closet which will take place from 4:00-6:00P CT at the Noelle Hotel. The pop-up shop will feature handpicked items of clothing, shoes, and accessories from her personal collection for purchase. Carly’s Closet will be cashless, accepting payments made with credit or debit cards.
To ensure that fans who cannot attend the pop-up in Nashville still have the opportunity to participate, Pearce has once again partnered with TalkShopLive to create an online shopping experience featuring exclusive items here for purchase beginning 4:00P CT on June 8. TalkShopLive is the leading live streaming, social selling online network, recognized by Fast Company magazine as one of the world’s Most Innovative Companies for 2023. Pearce is also excited to announce that the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) is an official charitable partner of Carly’s Closet.
This Wednesday June 7, Pearce will partake as a panellist on the Women in Country panel alongside Hillary Scott, Lily Rose and Madeline Edwards at Billboard’s inaugural Billboard Country Live in Conversation – a one-day ticketed conference taking place at Marathon Music Works for fans and industry insiders.
