Carly Pearce has a brand new single headed to country radio.
She recently scored her third career #1 with Ashley McBryde for their duet “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”, which was just the second solo female duet to reach the #1 spot in a 30-year time span at the time it went #1 (Miranda Lambert and Elle King recently had “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home) go #1, as well).
From Carly’s 2021 third studio album, 29: Written In Stone, “What He Didn’t Do” will be the third from the record:

I think that about says it all…
