I love this version possibly even more than the original.
Carly Pearcereleased a live acoustic rendition of her current single with Chris Stapleton “We Don’t Fight Anymore,” and her vocals sound absolutely perfect.
Backed by just an acoustic guitar and some steel, the lyrics and storytelling shine, though I do have to say that having Chris Stapleton’s vocals here, like on the original, would’ve definitely kicked it up a notch (as it always does, obviously).
The song was written by Carly along with frequent collaborator Shane McAnally and Pete Good, and is also her debut as a co-producer, as it was produced by McAnally, Josh Osborne, and Pearce.
Carly says that it was of course a “dream come true” to get her fellow Kentuckian Chris to feature on the record:
“This song embodies a place that I think, if we are honest with ourselves, we’ve all felt at some point in a relationship.
The distance that feels heartbreaking, yet you’re also indifferent. I’ve always been a writer who never wanted to shy away from the ‘uncomfortable’ moments in all of our lives, and this song feels too important not to share.
Having Chris Stapleton join me on this song was a dream come true and he unlocked an element to the story that I didn’t even know it needed.”
She added that she’s “never been more proud” of a song:
“I hope this song meets you wherever you are on your journey. Whether that’s in the middle of needing to call it quits, remembering someone from the past or deciding you want to work it out.
I’ve never been more proud of a song. ‘We Don’t Fight Anymore’ ft. Chris Stapleton out everywhere now.”
Her current single at country radio, “We Don’t Fight Anymore” is steadily climbing the charts and has cracked the Top 20, sitting at #19 this week.
The Kentucky native has also been teasing and releasing some new music over the last few months, so hopefully we’ll have a lot more from Carly coming in the near future.
