The music video Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde‘s “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” is out now.
“Never Wanted To Be That Girl” is one of the 15-tracks on Carly’s album, 29: Written in Stone – which is available now.
Carly and Ashley share the story behind the song…
Ashley McBryde: “I think we discussed a couple of, not really exchanging stories about being cheated on, but some scenarios that could happen. How does other girl meet guy? How does this happen? And I think we started with the first line. We were just talking about what if it were as innocent as needing help changing a tire because you weren’t wearing the proper clothing or you just got your nails done or whatever. To change the tire and then that dude says, ‘We should go get a beer.’ You would. And if you hit it off you would keep doing it. So, we just started at the top left-hand corner of the page.”
Carly Pearce: “I know, right? We kind of wrote it as it was going in real time. (Yeah.) And, you know, for me, I felt like I was in a season with Shane where we just could all feel in the room what kind of thing we were gonna write, and it just kinda was the matter of landing on the right way to do it.”
Ashley: “We didn’t know exactly how the story was gonna turn out. We just kinda found out as we wrote it.”
