CARLY PEARCE:

1. Carly Pearce – flip the switch with Michael

:34 Carly Pearce addresses the ‘flip the switch’ video she and Michael Ray did, where he ended up in her lingerie, and how they’re adjusting to being home together and figuring out what to do with the time.

“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.”

2. Carly Pearce – life without touring 

:59 Carly Pearce shares how she and so many of her peers are feeling during this time, not being able to tour and get out and promote their music and do what they love to do.

“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.”

3. Carly Pearce – lots of extra time with Michael

:42 Carly Pearce talks about what it’s been like spending so much time at home with her husband, Michael Ray, and how they’ve been adjusting to their new normal for the time being.

“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.”

4. Carly Pearce – message for people at this time.

:58 As people try to deal with the effects the coronavirus is having on our lives, including putting so many things in our lives on pause, Carly Pearce offers a message of hope.

“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.”

5. Carly Pearce – what she and Michael are binging

:27 Carly Pearce reveals what she and her husband, Michael Ray, are binge watching during their unexpected time off because of the coronavirus.

“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.”

DANIELLE BRADBERY:

6. Danielle Bradbery – coronavirus check-in

:36 Danielle Bradbery checked in to let fans know what she’s up to while we’re all practicing “Safer at Home” guidelines in Nashville.

“Hey guys, it’s Danielle Bradbery.  I’m trying to stay sane during this quarantine.  I hope everybody’s staying home, staying safe and healthy, keeping yourself entertained.  Some of the things I do is little workouts, try to read a book, binge watch Netflix shows, just try and relax, keep myself healthy.  Try to think of what I’m going to do after this quarantine, music-wise.  I’m brainstorming like crazy.  New music is coming, I promise, and I’m so excited to share that with you guys.  So I can’t wait.  I miss everybody, so, prayers, have faith, stay strong and I’ll see y’all after this.”
