Last night, Lee Brice, Michael Ray, Carly Pearce, and Steve Wariner took the Opry Stage, any for my money, the highlight of the night belonged to Carly Pearce.
Performing a brand new song dedicated to her late producer Busbee, who devastatingly succumbed to brain cancer at the age of 43 last year, this song beautifully illustrates what Heaven might be like when we finally get to meet our loved ones there.
Carly also provided a detailed backstory of how the song came to be:
“At his funeral, a songwriter that all of us in Nashville love named Barry Dean, he gave the most beautiful speech. And Busbee has three little girls and a beautiful wife, and he painted this picture of Heaven that was so beautiful to me… if anybody’s ever lost anybody this felt like a really cool way to look at our loved ones that are going to meet us in Heaven and show us around.”
If you’ve lost someone special, someone that you’re hoping to see again someday, this one will hit close to home.
Get ready for the goosebumps.
Carly also recently released a cover of the Dixie Chicks’ “Cowboy Take Me Away”
