Carly Pearce is enjoying the first Top 20 single of her career with “Every Little Thing,” which is currently No. 17 on the Mediabase chart. Carly, who was named to the 2016 CMT Next Women of Country class, signed a new record deal with Big Machine Label Group in January and released “Every Little Thing” to country radio in February. Now the Kentucky native has a new video for the personal tune.
“I wrote this song from a very personal place of a heartbreak that I experienced and never really thought anybody was going to hear it,” says Carly to Nash Country Daily. “I certainly didn’t think that it was going to be something that would be my debut into the country genre. I thought that maybe my fans would have to buy into me a little bit to understand the artistic side of this song. I joke and say I’ve put out a lot of songs and been a part of a lot of things, but this song, as soon as it came out, it felt like it had its own wings and it was kind of out of my control.
“It’s about a relationship that was four or five years ago, but I wrote it last year. I think about a year ago I wrote it. It’s interesting to have this song come out, and those feelings were so real, but now, so much life has happened and I’m thankful that that relationship didn’t work. It’s been amazing just to hear different stories of people that are going through that or even people that are attaching the song to something much greater like a death or being a widow or something like that.”
