Carly Pearce is nominated for four CMA Awards next week, including three for her song “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which she describes as “the little gift that keeps giving.”
Carly says the nomination for the song is particularly special because it was the last song she worked on with her producer busbee before he passed away. She notes, “I could not think of a more special moment for the person that gave me so much.”
And Carly feels even more honored that she is nominated for Song of the Year, which means she’s being recognized as a songwriter. “That one means extra. That’s on another level,” she shares. “To think that I was recognized as a songwriter, solely, on something that was so special and so personal to me, that is very, very special to me because it shows something outside of just Carly Pearce.”
- The 54th Annual CMA Awards, hosted by Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, air live on ABC from Nashville on November 11th.
