Carly Pearce and Lee Brice capture romantic torment from two different angles in the powerful video for their new duet, “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”Directed by Sam Siske and filmed as a split screen narrative, it finds a used-to-be couple experiencing their now-separate lives in totally different ways. One has moved on with a new love and a new life, while the other struggles to let go. It was all inspired by what Pearce went through with a former flame — and how even though she wished her ex the best, it just wasn’t meant to be.
“The first time I watched this music video I cried — it is as real and honest as the ‘Every Little Thing’ video was for me,” Pearce says in a statement. “This song is so personal and I wanted the visual to truly reflect that part of my story. I feel like this song is the closing piece to this chapter in my life, so the ending is bittersweet, but it leaves things on a positive note. If I were to run into this person today, my hope is that things would play out exactly how the video ends.”
“So excited to be a part of this with Carly… Singing with her is natural!” Brice adds. “This one was so fun to shoot!”
Co-written with Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana (and produced by the late busbee), “I Hope You’re Happy Now” is the first track revealed from Pearce’s self-titled sophomore album, which is set for release on Valentine’s Day (February 14). Speaking with reporters when the track was first revealed, Pearce admitted the song seems like an odd fit for her life right now — she and singer Michael Ray just got married, after all — but says the song’s regretful theme is something most people can relate to, from one side or the other.

I wanted to make the #ihopeyourehappynow video as raw and real as the emotion in this song, so I took it back to the vulnerability I did with the “Every Little Thing” video. No matter how you relate to this song, we’ve all been on one side of the story. So proud of this video and hope you love it as much as I loved making it! #linkinbio 💔
“It’s an interesting time to be putting out a heartbreak ballad,” she said at the time, “but I’ve tried to answer that and I think the best way is we all have yearbook photos. You can go back and look at those and tap into so many memories, and to me that’s how I relate to my songs. They’re like my yearbook photos of the evolution of who I am.”
Pearce performed during CMA Awards alongside Kelsea Ballerini, Lindsay Ell, Runaway June, Maddie & Tae, Ashley McBryde and Little Big Town, celebrating country’s female artists with the hit, “Girl Crush.” She’s currently on tour with dates scheduled all the way into next summer.
The only thing giving us life after Wednesday’s (Nov. 13) 53rd annual CMA Awards is reliving all the bold and beautiful styles from the red carpet. Country’s leading women shined in glimmering sequins, lush velvets and daring colors. Men were stylin’ and profilin’ in florals and concert blacks, while couples rocked showstopping numbers for an unforgettable date night with their significant others.
Here are Sounds Like Nashville’s favorite ensembles from the CMA Awards red carpet.
It’s said that magic always happens in threes, and this trio was pure enchantment on the red carpet together. Underwood stunned in a sheer gold gown by Elie Madie. Parton looked ravishing in her white dress by Jackson Lowell, and McEntire rocked a gorgeous black ensemble by Nashville’s Jonathan Kayne that just wouldn’t quit with the glamor.
Bradbery knocks red-carpet looks out of the park every single time. She did not disappoint with this beautiful, off-the-shoulder, red Hamel dress.
Musgraves holds court at any red carpet, and last night was no different. She lit up the CMA Awards in a yellow pastel Valentino gown that was pure sunshine with feather accents.
The Highwomen Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby are each stunning on their own. But when their powers combine, they are proverbial fire. Carlile’s custom suit was by Sanne London and paired with a Gucci blouse and Saint Laurent boots. Morris looked like the belle of the ball in her astonishing pastel blue gown by Honayda’s Honayda Serafi. Shires played up her power suit like the boss she is, and Hemby was elegance personified in her Greta Constantine dress.
Nettles arguably had the most-talked-about outfit of the night with her collaboration by Christian Siriano and artist Alice Mizrachi. Her Siriano suit was paired with an original Mizrachi illustration and the message, “Play our f*@#!n records, please, and thank you!” “I saw a wonderful opportunity to invite and inspire conversation about country music’s need to play more women artists on radio and playlistings,” Nettles wrote on Instagram. “What better and more womanly way to invite such conversation than with fashion that sends a message?!”
Ray gets a standing ovation for his Alexander McQueen suit with the silver flora embroidery. We just can’t get enough!
Home Free’s Adam Chance, Tim Foust, Austin Brown, Rob Lundquist and Adam Rupp could wear burlap sacks and look great. However, they were hands down the most stylish men on the red carpet. Their scheme of gray, burgundy and floral made them stand out among the pack on country’s biggest night. Pictured from left to right are Chance in an Indochino suit, Foust in a Robert Graham sport coat and Ted Baker pants, Brown in a Topman sport coat and Ted Baker pants, Lundquist in Indochino and Rupp in Express. Their boots were a mix of Asos and John Varvatos.
Check out the boldness on LANCO! What’s not to love about these rock star looks? Pictured from left to right are Chandler Baldwin, Jared Hampton, Brandon Lancaster, Eric Steedly and Tripp Howell.
Lynch’s irresistible pearly white smile this year was paired with a sleek white Dolce & Gabanna suit with Lucchese boots, and the result pretty much made us flatline in a good way.
Jon Pardi and Summer Duncan
Pardi and fiancee Summer Duncan’s coordinating sparkle and twang made us secretly hope they would adopt us for their next shopping trip. This couple has some serious style.
Christmas came early for Clare Dunn fans when she dropped new single “Step Into Christmas” on Friday (11/8). The holiday tune was originally written and performed by legendary performer Elton John, becoming an international hit in the 1970s. While John’s version of the song blends elements of pop and soft rock, Dunn’s is a groovy piece that incorporates rock, soul and a little bit of country twang. The country songstress produced the track herself and recorded it in just a single weekend with one-pass vocals.
“I remember when we were kids, waking early, exchanging gifts with my sister and parents, then us all bundling up and going out and taking care of cattle,” the Colorado native shared about her early Christmas experiences. “By the time we came back in, we were all frozen, trying to shake off the cold, scraping snow off our boots and jeans and waiting for the ice to melt out of clumps of our hair while we packed up all the food into pickups and got ready to make the 50-mile drive down a dirt road to my grandparents’ house in Oklahoma.” For Dunn, the holiday season has always been about spending time with loved ones.
“Our biggest tradition is just being together, whether it was in Colorado, Oklahoma or even in Nashville sometimes now,” she said. “Being together is what our holidays are all about.” The debut of “Step Into Christmas” follows the release of three songs plus an R&B-inspired remix of “My Love.” Dunn will tour through the beginning of Thanksgiving week, making stops in Iowa, Virginia and Wisconsin.

It’s no surprise that a member of Hollywood’s elitist of the elite would put her stamp of approval on snuffing out the lives of unborn babies. But in a new interview with the Guardian published today, on the same day her new album was released, Taylor Swift endorsed abortion and trashed President Trump. When it comes to abortion, Swift said, “Obviously I’m pro-choice.” And when it comes to pro-life legislation in states across the country that would ban abortions and protect unborn children she said “I just can’t believe this is happening.”
She pledged to “do everything I can for 2020″ to defeat President Trump, who has governed pro-life.
Taylor Swift doesn’t seem any different from any other Hollywood abortion supporter. Her support for abortion is wrapped and cloaked in sloganeering and there appears to be very little thought behind it. “Obviously.” No explanation, no in-depth discussion of why destroying the lives of unborn babies is intellectually the right thing to do. Just “obviously.”
“Obviously” I Support Abortion. “Can’t Believe” People Want to Protect Unborn Children” Taylor Said
Supporting abortion in the highest end of liberal circles is the expected thing to do. Because if you don’t support abortion in today’s self-based, me-focused society you are wrongly viewed as anti-woman. And that certainly will never do when you’re trying to sell pop music.
Coming out as pro-life would end her career. Understanding that abortion takes a life of unique human being is a rational thought that Swift can’t afford to make and appease the music industry at the same time. Never mind that she is supporting the destruction of potential fans. 61 million people can’t purchase her music because their lives were ended in an abortion. But that “obviously” doesn’t make sense.
