(AUDIO) CARLY PEARCE IS FEELING ALL THE EMOTIONS OF NOT BEING ABLE TO TOUR

Like the rest of the music industry, Carly Pearce is coming to terms with being stuck at home because of the coronavirus and not being able to be out promoting her single, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and touring.  “It is not fun,” she says.”  “It is really difficult to be holding all this new music and be so excited and have a tour that you don’t know if it’s going to happen and have all these plans for the year that kind of came to a very screeching halt.”

One thing that has helped is having friends and a husband in the business who fully understand what she’s going through.  “Thankfully we’re all in it together and we’re all trying to figure it out together,” says Carly, “and hopefully we will be able to find creative ways to get to fans. It’s very weird for us.”

Carly has been doing some live events on social media, and she says, “I’m just trying to like, not panic and figure out what does the landscape of the next few months or six months or year look like for us, and we’ll all figure it out.”

Carly admits that she’s struggled with certain things, like “feeling responsible for my band who’s not on salary, watching my husband have to take his band off of salary, watching other artists feel this and talking to them.  And we’re all trying to figure out what this means for all of us, but we’re going to try to get music out in the best way we can and then hopefully have like, the surge of fans ready for it when we do get to come back.”

While the timeline for the future is uncertain, one thing that is certain is that when it’s safe for everyone to be back together, the fans will be just as eager to see their favorite artists, as the artists will be to see their fans.

Carly Pearce – life without touring  :59

“It is not fun. It is really difficult to be holding all this new music and be so excited and have a tour that you don’t know if it’s going to happen and have all these plans for the year that kind of came to a very screeching halt. Thankfully we’re all in it together and we’re all trying to figure it out together, and hopefully we will be able to find creative ways to get to fans. It’s very weird for us. You know, everybody’s kind of jumping all of the sudden like, ‘Oh my God, we’ve gotta do live streams,’ and I’m just trying to like, not panic and figure out what does the landscape of the next few months or six months or year look like for us, and we’ll all figure it out. I think I’ve gone through the roller coaster ride of feeling responsible for my band who’s not on salary, watching my husband have to take his band off of salary, watching other artists feel this and talking to them.  And we’re all trying to figure out what this means for all of us, but we’re going to try to get music out in the best way we can and then hopefully have like, the surge of fans ready for it when we do get to come back.”
