During Tuesday evening’s songwriters round at 3rd & Lindsley as part of the Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival, Pearce performed alongside several fellow ASCAP songwriters, including Josh Kear, Chris Tompkins and Matt Stell.
While performing, Pearce sang a brief portion of Carrie Underwood’s chart-topping hit, “Before He Cheats,” with Kear and Tompkins, who are the co-writers of the popular revenge anthem. Pearce’s impromptu performance of the smash hit came after one of the song’s co-writers asked the Kentucky native to sing the final chorus of the song.
As she concluded the lyric “because the next time that he cheats, oh you know it won’t be on me,” Pearce threw shade at an ex saying, “hell no!”
The “29” singer then continued to perform the song, finishing out the track’s chorus.
“I dug my key into the side of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive / Carved my name into his leather seats / I took a Louisville slugger to both headlights / I slashed a hole in all four tires / Maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats / oh maybe next time he’ll think before he cheats,” Pearce sings on the chorus.
