Tuesday, November 5, 2019
– Carly Pearce announced today that she would release her sophomore album on Valentine's Day 2020.

"So much has happened to me in the last few years," Pearce wrote on Instagram. "Y'all have changed my life and given my music a home in this world. I grew up, let go of things that needed to go, fell in love, fell on my face, went through some hell and found "Carly" fully for the first time EVER."
"I'm so excited to announce my sophomore, self-titled album will be released on VALENTINE'S DAY 2020!!! This record is dedicated to @busbee. The last full record he made & one that I am so very proud of. Thank you for bringing these songs to life. I can't wait to honor you and hear/see how people connect to what we created."
busbee was a producer and songwriter, who died on Sept. 29 at 43 of glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer. He produced her first disc as well, which yielded hits with the title track and "Hide the Wine."
Pearce, 29, got married last month to fellow singer Michael Ray.
