Carly Pearce – flip the switch with Michael
:33 Carly Pearce talks about the recent “flip the switch” video she and Michael Ray posted on Instagram, where he ended up in her teddy and robe, and how they’re passing the time while they’re social distancing.
“You know what’s funny, it was really his idea. We’re goofy were funny. I think that we’ve settled in, to be honest with you, the first few days were not good. I’ve had a roller coaster of emotions of not being able to do what you love, and being in the house and trying to figure out what that means, and we’re both driven by work, and to not be working in the conventional way that we’re used to. But it’s kind of fun. We’ve had a really good time figuring out things. But we’re trying to make the best of it and be funny and just enjoy the time that we have because we may not get this again.”
Carly Pearce – lots of extra time with Michael
:42 Carly Pearce talks about how she and her husband, Michael Ray, are dealing with being home together for such an extended period of time, which is something they’re not used to.
“I mean, I think that, you know, when you put two artists in a house that aren’t used to being … we actually Facetimed with Brantley Gilbert last night, and the three of us all kind of talked about the fact that we’re going through this kind of weird thing of, wait a minute, this is not normal. We’re only used to being home three days out of the week. But I think that Michael and I, we’ve never had this much time to just rest. We’ve never had this time together, we’ve never been able to just really be normal. So, I take it as a blessing. We’re actually we’re leaving today. He left to go to Florida to see his family for a few days I’m leaving to go do social distancing with my mom who’s has a lung disease, but we didn’t want to leave each other. So, we’re figuring it out. It’s hard.”
Carly Pearce – what she and Michael are binging
:27 Carly Pearce shares what she and her husband, Michael Ray, have been binge watching while they practice social distancing at home.
“Now, our current obsession together is Tiger King. I don’t know how to even begin to explain what I feel about that. It is out of control. If none of you have watched it, you have to watch it. Michael and I aren’t finished with it but there’s a few parts in it that like, I can’t physically watch. It’s too much for me. What a weird group of people in society that you didn’t even know was real. I mean, I just can’t believe it.”
Carly Pearce – message for people at this time
:56 Like the rest of us, Carly Pearce has been learning to navigate the uncertainty and unpredictability of this time we are living in during the coronavirus pandemic, and she has a message of hope for others.
“My big thing right now has been faith over fear and believing that this too shall pass. And I’m trying to look at it as a message from God that he’s telling us all to slow down, and that life as we know it can be taken away very quickly if we take it for granted. And in a lot of ways I think I took my everyday life … I thought I’d be on stage. I thought I had this year in the bag, like, I was already looking to the next year. And in a second, you can be left in your thoughts, and you have to remain grateful and believe that this is time that will not last forever and that you can find good in this, and hopefully give yourself the room to deal with the emotions that you have. I’ve had days where I’ve cried my eyes out over this, and then I have days that I’m okay. And I think just giving yourself permission to that, but also just really looking to God for your faith and your hope and all of that.”
