Carly Pearce confirmed her split from boyfriend Riley King after two years of dating, telling People that she and King ultimately weren’t a good fit. Said the 33-year-old Pearce: “For the most part, it was great. People date to see if they’re gonna go the distance, and we weren’t. We just simply were not right for each other, and that’s the bottom line. I am on such a beautiful journey, and I am really excited about the next chapter of my life.”
King had also confirmed the split to Page Six, sharing: “Yes, things didn’t work out. Carly and I have parted ways and I wish her nothing but the best in both her career and personal life.” Pearce was previously married to country music singer Michael Ray; the former couple split in June 2020 after eight months of marriage.
Pearce will release her latest single “We Don’t Fight Anymore” with Chris Stapleton on June 16. She said on Instagram that the song explores feeling distant in a relationship: “This song embodies a place that I think, if we are honest with ourselves, we’ve all felt at some point in a relationship. The distance that feels heartbreaking, yet you’re also indifferent. I’ve always been a writer who never wanted to shy away from the ‘uncomfortable’ moments in all of our lives, and this song feels too important not to share. @chrisstapleton, you made my dreams come true by lending your incredible talents to this song.”
