Carly Pearce's new seven-song project, 29, will be released tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 19th), and it includes some of the most personal songs of her life. She has said the new music lets listeners know what she experienced with the untimely loss of her producer, Busbee, and her short marriage to and divorce from Michael Ray. But is she nervous about the reaction those insightful songs will draw from Michael or others close to the situation? Carly tells us: ["What have I always done? I sing about my life. I sing and I try to interpret what goes on in my life the best way that I can. That's what I started with when I was 25 years old and I'm doing nothing different in writing this music, and, you know, I'm writing from a place of speaking for what all women and men — I mean, I have some men tell me they really can relate to 'Next Girl' — but I'm just doing what I've always done."] SOUNDCUE (:31 OC: . . . I've always done.)

"Next Girl" is the lead single from 29. It currently sits inside the Top 30 and climbing on the country charts.
