Carly Pearce’s “My Place” was inspired by a heartbreaking dream

Carly Pearce is previewing her forthcoming album with a new track, “My Place.”

Out now, the song, which Carly wrote with Lauren Hungate and Jordan Reynolds, paints the picture of one’s post-breakup life and the struggle to cope with what was.

“It ain’t my place/ To question if there’s someone fillin’ my space/ Ain’t my business tryna picture four-by-sixes with her in ’em/ If she does things that I didn’t/ Wonderin’ what the hell I’m wonderin’ for/ It ain’t my place ’cause it ain’t my place anymore,” Carly sings in the chorus.

“I wrote this song about a dream I had long before the relationship I was in ended, but I knew that it would,” says Carly. “It’s hard to watch people move on and realize your heart can’t live there anymore, but that realization is the beginning of the healing process.”

You can find “My Place” on Carly’s forthcoming new album, hummingbird, arriving June 14. Its Chris Stapleton-assisted lead single, “We Don’t Fight Anymore,” is making its way up the country charts.
