Carly Pearce dropped a new video for her single, “Next Girl.”
Directed by Seth Kupersmith, the over-the-top clip features Carly getting plenty of unwanted attention at a Nashville bar.
“This video was so fun to make,” says Carly. “I feel like most of us have either been on the receiving end of these ridiculous advances or have witnessed them. And while I truly hope the lyrics help the ‘next girl’ know that a jerk’s actions are not her fault, I also wanted to mix some of the often experienced pick-up techniques with a little humor. Come on, do these really work?”
Penned by Carly, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “Next Girl” is currently No. 47 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart after four weeks. The single represent Carly’s first new music without producer busbee—who passed away in September 2019—by her side. It also represents Carly’s first new music since her divorce from Michael Ray after less than a year of marriage.
The banjo-filled tune serves as a word to the wise regarding smooth-talking guys, as Carly sings: “I bet you probably met him at a bar, let him walk you to your car / I bet he said he never falls this hard, yeah, I remember that part / He knows how to say all the right things, knows how to get you out of that dress / Knows how to make you think you’re the best thing / But I know what happens, next . . . girl.”
