Carly Pearce enlisted Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale and Euphoria actor Shiloh Fernandez, to assist in bringing her latest single “We Don’t Fight Anymore” (feat. Chris Stapleton) to life in a cinematic new music video.

Directed by Alexa Campbell, the music video features scenes of Pearce singing the tune in a  candlelight room intertwined with Hale and Fernandez bringing the storyline of the song to life.

The two actors vividly convey the emotional depth of Pearce’s poignant single, depicting the narrative of a couple trapped in a state of emotional disconnection, where even disputes seem to escape them. 

As their sense of isolation intensifies, their indifference becomes glaringly evident when their house is engulfed in flames, a scene that seemingly parallels their crumbling relationship.

“Having talents like Lucy and Shiloh were truly such a gift. The ‘space’ you feel between the two of them is felt so tragically at every moment of this video,” Pearce explained.

This is a full-circle moment for Carly Pearce and Lucy Hale as Pearce previously toured with Hale as a backup singer when Hale pursued country music. In 2014, Hale released “You Sound Good To Me” as the lead single from her debut album, Road Between. Pearce appeared alongside Hale on tour and during media appearances, including a performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Lucy Hale’s foray into the music industry was brief, and she made a return to television shortly after releasing her debut album.

After her time as a backup singer, Pearce began to gain traction as a solo artist. In 2017, she released her breakout single, “Every Little Thing” and she has gone on to become a GRAMMY, CMA and ACM Award-winning singer/ songwriter. 

A Great Start At Country Radio

We Don’t Fight Anymore” was released in June and unlocked a new musical era for Pearce. Upon its release to country radio on June 16, the song raked in 95 first-week adds and marked the biggest add date of her career so far. 

“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.” Pearce previously shared of the track on social media. “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.”

Co-written by Pearce alongside frequent collaborators Shane McAnally and Pete Good, the song was taken to the next level with the addition of Stapleton’s vocals.  

“Having Chris Stapleton join me on this song was a dream come true and he unlocked an element to the story that I didn’t even know it needed,” she shared. 

“Country Music Made Me Do It”

Following the release of “We Don’t Fight Anymore,” Pearce gave fans another taste of her forthcoming album with the release of “Country Music Made Me Do It,” which serves as a love letter to the country music genre.
