Carly Pearce and Lee Brice released a new video for their powerful single, “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”
Directed by Sam Siske, the new video features Carly and Lee trading verses, while the storyline revolves around a former couple moving on with their lives.
“The first time I watched this music video I cried,” said Carly. “It is as real and honest as the ‘Every Little Thing’ video was for me. This song is so personal and I wanted the visual to truly reflect that part of my story. I feel like this song is the closing piece to this chapter in my life, so the ending is bittersweet, but it leaves things on a positive note. If I were to run into this person today, my hope is that things would play out exactly how the video ends.”
“So excited to be a part of this with Carly,” added Lee. “Singing with her is natural. This one was so fun to shoot!”
Penned by Carly, Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana, “I Hope You’re Happy Now” will be featured on Carly’s upcoming sophomore album, which is slated to drop in February 2020.
