With the filing of divorce from Michael Ray, to whom she’d been married to for less than a year, Carly Pearce has had a rough quarantine.

While Pearce has yet to comment publicly about her breakup, she has been talking about her desire to get back to work and play for fans. Pearce says, “I was talking to Kelsea [Ballerini] about this last night, and it would be so much easier, I feel like, if we had a light at the end of the tunnel, like a date where we were like, ‘This is when we go back out.’ But I think a lot of people say it won’t go back to normal until next year.”

She adds, “I believe somebody has to just do it. Somebody has to go play some sort of show. And I still have shows on the books starting in August. It seems like with every passing month they go away, but I’m hopeful and I hope that we get out there, and I know I’m ready.”

Pearce just recently scored her second #1 hit with “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”
