Carly Pearce’s 29 Chronicles a Period of Personal Struggle

The Kentucky-raised country singer-songwriter is now ready to bare her soul following the most grueling time of her life. Carly Pearce’s 29, which was released early this year, chronicles a period of personal struggle – including the process of facing the loss of a longtime producer Busbee to a rare cancer while watching her marriage from fellow country singer Michael Ray dissolve after less than a year.

Now that fate is giving her no choice but to move forward, Carly Pearce finds herself working with brand-new collaborators, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, while learning on into the past. The talented trio then crafted a batch of songs that at one time were uncomfortably personal yet universally relatable.

The Title Track Sets Out As A Forthright Centerpiece

The album’s title track “29” kicked off the entire writing process for the project, setting the tone for writing in a deep way. 

And as expected, the poignant ballad is actually autobiographical, wherein the country songstress sings about “the year I got married and divorced.” It was supposed to be the best time of her life, yet it wound up taking a turn for the worst. And the surprising verses, which Pearce compared to Loretta Lynn’s “The Pill” and Tammy Wynette’s “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” was the only way to describe just exactly how heartbreaking that moment was.

And as if that wasn’t enough, eight more Carly Pearce songs are out, cushioned between the seven existing tracks as the LP expands to 29: Written In Stone. Pearce said this would bridge the gaps left in the first record as she tries to tell a more comprehensive story from the viewpoint of someone who tackles grief, heartbreak, and the messiness of moving on.

The singer said that 29: Written In Stone is rather a story of someone trying to heal one’s soul and is once-again hopeful for the future.
