Carly Pearce & Ashley McBryde Hit Number-1 with “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”

Congrats to Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde as they land in the number-1 spot on the Billboard country airplay chart with “Never Wanted To Be That Girl.”

After topping the country chart, Carly talks about her song with Ashley and the success its had, “Oh my gosh, I mean just thinking about how this song even came to be. I had an idea to have Ashley on a song and she was on board. And just to see what it’s done and the stories that we’ve heard, and to be two women to get a number one – it’s Ashley’s first, which I think is really awesome, and I’m so happy for her. And this is the kind of music that I want to write and I want to sing, and to see it do what it’s done at radio makes me really proud.”

Ashley is on a tour overseas right now, which makes her first trip to number-1 even more memorable, “First times only happen once. I’ll always remember I was in Leeds, England when I got the news. I’ll always love that Carly and I got to ride this rocket of a song together. I’ll always love that she, Shane and I trusted each other and ourselves to be brutally honest when we wrote it. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that.”

Carly shares, “So many people have been where this song takes you … it’s so real and feels so raw.”
