Carly Pearce and her boyfriend Riley King enjoyed “a dreamy few days” in Napa Valley, California to celebrate both of their birthdays and their anniversary.
The country superstar took to social media to document their travels via a carousel of images. The snapshots included several posed photos of the couple at different vineyards/wineries, an elegant dinner, breathtaking views, and bottles of wine.
“A dreamy few days with my favorite guy, ♥️🍷” Pearce captioned a series of images.
Together the couple visited several wineries and vineyards, including Chappellet Vineyard & Winery, Regusci Winery, David Arthur Vineyards and Caymus Vineyards.
King also shared a few photos of their vacation, which he called “such an amazing trip.”
“Both our birthdays and anniversary week capped off with an amazing couple days in wine country!” the former MLB player and current Nashville Realtor wrote.
Previously Vacationed In Napa Valley In Summer Of 2022
The couple previously spent some time in Napa Valley in summer of 2022 while Pearce was serving as support on Kenny Chesney’s Here And Now Tour.
While visiting Napa in July of 2022, Carly Pearce and Riley King sampled a variety of wines, enjoyed a three-course dinner and much more with some of Pearce’s road crew.
“Napa photo dump ((but where I progressively catch a wine buzz as the swipe goes on 😛🍷✨)),” Pearce wrote at the time.
King also shared some of their memories from Napa at the time, writing “will cherish this trip forever. Bucket list item shared with the most amazing girl!”
In addition, the “What He Didn’t Do” singer shared a short clip of she and King’s excursion to her TikTok account, pairing it with fan-favorite tune, “Hide The Wine.”
How Did Carly Pearce Meet Her Boyfriend Riley King?
Pearce previously told Audacy’s Rob Stone and Holly Hutton in June of 2022 that she met Riley King, a Nashville-based Realtor, through mutual friends and that they have been dating for a year.
While Pearce said she initially kept her relationship with King a bit private during the interview, the chart-topping hitmaker has been more open about it with fans recently, sharing photos with King at different events, including a variety of award shows such as the 2022 ACM Awards.
Her love for Riley King has already inspired a new song.
In November of 2022, Pearce performed an unreleased new song titled “Trust Issues” at The Listening Room. The song is expected to appear on her forthcoming new album, which she vowed to move past heartbreak on as her “love life is flourishing” and as she says she can’t be “29 and divorced forever.”
The forthcoming new album will serve as the follow-up to 2021’s 29: Written In Stone, which was written and released in the wake of her divorce from country star Michael Ray.
Currently Working On Her New Album
Carly Pearce is currently in the studio working her next album.
During a recent interview with Audacy’s Katie Neal of Katie & Company during Superstar Power Hour, Pearce opened up about her new project.
“I think a lot of people think that just because I’m happy [and in] a relationship that I’m just going to come out with a bunch of love songs and that’s just not my vibe. It’s not sunshine and rainbows,” she explained.
“I felt a lot of pressure to top 29 and I was like, ‘Well, I don’t have a lot of chaos in my life right now. Things are pretty stable.’ I would look at my boyfriend sometimes and be like, ‘Can you just yell at me?,’” she joked.
One Of Her New Songs Was Inspired By A Nightmare
“There is a song, I haven’t cut it, but I definitely will cut it. I had a dream, a very vivid dream, about my current relationship that was very negative [and] I woke up and [told my boyfriend] ‘I just had a dream that you left me and he was like, ‘That’s not a dream, that’s awful [and] I would not call that a dream… would call that a nightmare.’”
“[So] I went to this writing session, and I wrote this whole song about what if he really did leave me? It ended up being one of my favorite songs and it has elements in there that sound like him and he was like, ‘What is THIS?’ I was like, ‘Sorry, welcome to dating a songwriter,’” she said.
Working on new music aside, Pearce recently performed “Just A Girl” with pop icon Gwen Stefani Sunday at 2023 CMT Awards.
The Kentucky native recently wrapped up her supporting role on Blake Shelton’s Back To The Honky Tonk Tour.
Pearce will also perform at several music festivals throughout the year, including 2023 Outlaws and Legends Music Festival, North Carolina Azalea Fest, Country Thunder, CMA Fest and many others.
