As someone who has relatives who are active in the military, Carly Pearce realizes that when you volunteer to serve our country, it’s a decision that affects the entire family. As this Memorial Day weekend draws closer, Carly tells us she's very grateful for these brave men and women, as well as their families. [“I feel like families who have someone or a loved one in the military it is a whole family sacrifice. You have to think about life with this person in a different city, in a different state, in a different country. You don’t know when you’re gonna be able to speak to them. They may be gone for a long periods of time, they may be gone suddenly.  It takes a toll on a family and I think there has to be strength throughout the family, and it’s just a really amazing thing that people are strong enough to handle those things and want to make that sacrifice all around for our country.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . for our country.)

Carly sits inside the Top 10 and climbing on the country charts with “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” featuring Lee Brice.
