Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde Release An Acoustic Version Of “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”

I didn’t think it was possible for this song to even get any better, but I was wrong.

Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde delivered one of my favorite singles of the year in their old school country heartbreaker, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”, and today, we’re getting an acoustic version of the fantastic song.

Written by Carly and Ashley along with Shane McAnally, the song was included on Carly’s incredible 2021 album, 29: Written In Stone.

Though it’s not all that far off from the original, this new version of it hits even harder with the more raw, stripped-back production. And not to mention, it allows each of their vocal performances to shine on another level.

I’m so excited to see what both of them have coming in 2022… they’re the best of the best in mainstream country right now.

If you’re into sad, classic country songs without all the extra fluff and bullshit, you’ll love this:

They also put out one of my favorite music videos this year if you haven’t seen it yet:
