Undiscovered: 5 Carly Pearce Songs We Think You’ll Love

We are helping to celebrate Carly Pearce’s birthday today but highlighting five lesser-known songs that you may not know already.

1“Halfway Home”

“Halfway Home” is an emotional ballad on the songstress’s sophomore album Carly Pearce. Written by Pearce, Jimmy Robbins, and Laura Veltz, the heartfelt track depicts the hardships of falling out of love with somebody and keeping that confession from that person just a little bit too long.” She sings, “Halfway right doesn’t make it right / Halfway wrong is still wrong / Half of me is with you here tonight / And half of me is long gone / You can try to tell a heart to feel something that it don’t / But halfway to heaven isn’t heaven / And halfway home just ain’t home.” 

2. “If My Name Was Whiskey”

Written by Pearce, Busbee, and Shane McAnally and featured on Pearce’s debut Every Little Thing, “If My Name Was Whiskey” is a sad truth to the realization of being second best to whiskey.

3. “Honeysuckle”

Also a staple of the singer + songwriter’s debut Every Little Thing, “Honeysuckle” is a tribute to being young and in love. Written by busbee, Hillary Lindsey, and Barry D
