As tour dates are paused, CARLY PEARCE fans still find comfort and excitement in her music. During last night’s CMA Summer Stay-Cay presented by Budweiser Nitro Gold virtual celebration, the two-time chart-topper was surprised with a double shot of RIAA milestones. CMA CEO Sarah Trahern presented Carly with a plaque commemorating GOLD certification of Hide The Wine and invited duet partner LEE BRICE to join the celebration as their No. 1 hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now” earned PLATINUM status. The pair performed their smash collaboration, which has surpassed 225+ million global streams and is featured on Carly’s self-titled sophomore album via Big Machine Records. She penned “I Hope You’re Happy Now” alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana.
“Having songs that meant something to people was always my dream,” expressed Carly. “To see these songs reach such big milestones and see that my music is making an impact on people’s lives is more than I could’ve ever hoped for. I will never take any of this for granted and am so thankful.”
“I knew when I heard the song for the first time that this was something special and I’m honored that Carly asked me to be a part of it,” says Lee. “Thank you to all the fans for loving this song as much as Carly and I did recording it and making this a PLATINUM hit.”
In the variety show style livestream, Carly also competed in Super Easy Trivia with Bobby Bones and performed The Chicks’ “Cowboy Take Me Away.” During the ‘90s Country Cover Challenge with Russell Dickerson, Carly offered a tender version of Patty Loveless’ iconic “You Don’t Even Know Who I Am.”
