Newly married Carly Pearce sure has a lot to celebrate at Christmastime, including the fact that she’s looking forward to the release of her self-titled sophomore album on Valentine’s Day 2020.

However, the thing Carly’s looking forward to the most at the holidays is spending time with her family. Carly says, “I think just the tradition of being with family, always going to my grandparents’ house on Christmas Eve, and opening presents and going to midnight Christmas Eve service.”

Carly and Michael Ray will be spending their first Christmas as a married couple at her parents’ house in Alabama. They spent Thanksgiving with Michael’s family in Florida.

Pearce recently posted to Instagram, “Both being touring musicians, it makes it hard to balance time and moments. Last year, we traveled so much that we decided to not put up a Christmas tree. This year, I told @michaelraymusic we were only home together for one day before we left to travel for the holidays, so it probably wasn’t worth putting up a tree. If you know my husband, you know he will make memories over anything. We went to @hobbylobby, got all the decorations & decorated our first tree. Looking at it right now makes my heart so full for all of the amazing blessings that have happened to me this year. I am learning to slow down in this crazy life & enjoy the little things. I think this will be the best Christmas yet.”
