Keeping an honest conversation with her fans, CARLY PEARCE invited them to preview her new music video for “Closer To You” this afternoon leading up the exclusive YouTube premiere. They shared a massive group chat as the hard-working talent took a pause from recording with her producer busbee for a forthcoming sophomore album on Big Machine Records.
Watch “Closer To You” below:
“It’s no secret I want my fans to experience this exciting journey alongside me – from awards, tours and even my special relationship with Michael,” elaborated Carly. “As the lyrics say, ‘all I wanna do is get closer to you’ and that really rings true for me so I was happy to spend a little time chatting online before we all watched the video for the first time.”
Filmed in Nashville with director Mason Dixon, the moody tone captures lights-down-low moments and gentle embraces. The scenes shift as Carly lingers in an emerald frock yearning for her beloved before they are united in “a fast car, gassed up, sitting in the drive way.”
Carly maintains speed as she continues her co-headline THE WAY BACK TOUR leading up to travels across Europe and Australia next month for her first appearances at C2C and CMC; respectively. As her international trek ensues, the Kentucky native will vie for iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist as the only female in the category when the show airs March 14 on FOX (8-10pm ET/PT tape-delayed). In May, Carly joins Jason Aldean’s RIDE ALL NIGHT TOUR following last year’s major stints alongside Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts and Thomas Rhett.
With her history-making No. 1 “Every Little Thing,” Carly won the CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year and Radio Disney Music Award The Freshest! – Radio Disney Country Best New Artist while new music brought significant television appearances and bold headlines cementing her as “…one of country music’s most buzzed about artists” (Forbes) who “Does ‘Every Little Thing’ to Break Barrier Against Women in Country Music” (Variety).
