Carly Pearce made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (Feb. 2) to perform her latest single, “Next Girl.”
Pearce served up a touch of sass while flawlessly delivering a stripped-down performance of the song with a few members of her band by her side.
The songstress’s appearance on the show marked a full-circle moment as she previously performed on Ellen as a backup singer for Lucy Hale when she embarked on her country music journey.

Co-written by Pearce alongside Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Next Girl” serves as a warning to the “Next Girl” who ends up with a womanizing man. It’s an all too familiar storyline that many women can relate to: getting swept off your feet by someone who says and does all the right things…until he doesn’t.
“I bet you probably met him at a bar/ Let him walk you to your car, I bet/ He said he never falls this hard/ Yeah I remember that part/ He knows how to say all the right things/ Knows how to get you outta that dress/ Knows how to make you think you’re the best thing/ But I know what happens next, girl,” she sings on the chorus.
With its ’90s inspired production and fierce message of female empowerment, “Next Girl” is destined to be Pearce’s next big hit. It’s already reached the Top 30 at country radio and shows no signs of slowing down as its tallied over 46 million global streams.
