Carly Pearce ‘fell in love’ with Ashley McBryde’s ‘voice’
Following her win during the Grammys Premiere Ceremony, Pearce stopped by the press room to take questions from reporters. From the virtual media center, Showbiz asked Pearce about her collaboration with McBryde.
“If you know anything about my music, you know that I am a big fan of collaborations. I really, really love getting to collaborate with my peers. And quite honestly, I fell in love with Ashley’s voice sitting next to her at a radio show where we had to play next to each other,” Pearce explained.
She continued, “And I just called her and asked her if she’d write a song with me. This is the first time that I’ve ever written the song with the artist that I performed it with. So that felt very special.”
How ‘Never Wanted to Be That Girl’ was made
Speaking with Showbiz, Pearce expanded on what it was like working on “Never Wanted to Be That Girl” with McBryde
“We wrote it with my producer, Shane McAnally, one of my producers, And it was just a really honest conversation that day. And Ashley was willing to go there in the spirit of what I was kind of going through in my life. And she too found herself in a situation like this. And we just tried to write something real,” Pearce shared.
Standing in the press room, the country singer admitted that “Never Wanted to Be That Girl” surpassed “any expectation” she had.
“And I remember thinking it was special, but it has absolutely exceeded any expectation that I ever had for a song. But it just, it will forever be one of my favorite moments in a room where we just wrote a really great song and recorded it with an acoustic guitar and just thought, ‘Wow, that feels like something,’” Pearce told Showbiz.
