Carly Pearce's CMA Awards Performance Was Pre-Taped, So Charles Kelley Will Still Appear

Carly Pearce looks gorgeous in green on the red carpet at the 2020 CMA Awards on Wednesday (November 11) at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn.

The 30-year-old singer is nominated for four awards and she was originally set to perform her song “I Hope You’re Happy Now” with Lee Brice.

Lee ended up testing positive for coronavirus over the weekend and had to drop out of the event, so he was replaced by Lady A‘s Charles Kelley.

Luckily, the performance was pre-taped as Charles was just exposed to COVID-19 and pulled out of appearing at the event just minutes before the show was set to begin. The band announced that the performance will still air as planned.

Carly is nominated for New Artist of the Year, as well as Song of the Year, Music Video of the Year, and Musical Event of the Year, all for “I Hope You’re Happy Now.”

“So proud to say that my mama & I styled this look together this year. What a dream night already,” Carly wrote on Instagram.

Country Star Carly Pearce & Husband Michael Ray Split After Less Than a Year of Marriage

It’s over for country star Carly Pearce and husband Michael Ray.

The 30-year-old singer has announced that she and Michael have split after just under a year of marriage.

“This was a hard decision. It wasn’t something she wanted to have to do,” a source shared with People about the couple’s split. “This hasn’t been a quarantine realization — it was a last resort.”

Carly and Michael tied the knot in Nashville in October, before the coronavirus hit the nation.

The duo had been spending time together and apart during the pandemic, staying at their home in Nashville and their families’ homes.

“You just drink wine and walk around a small town,” Michael shared with the site of their activities during quarantine. “I don’t think I’ve ever walked more in my life. I felt like we were retired. We just didn’t have anything else to do but walk.”

He added that “it’s been a hard time for everybody, but we’ve really tried to find the silver lining in it, and go, ‘We’re not getting out of this, so how do we make the most of it?’”

For their honeymoon, Carly and Michael chose to head to this tropical location…

Country Music Stars Michael Ray & Carly Pearce Hit the Beach During Their Honeymoon!

Michael Ray and Carly Pearce got married in October and they are now on their honeymoon!

The two country music stars hit the beach together at Sandals South Coast on Wednesday (December 18) in Jamaica.

“We knew we wanted to go somewhere tropical,” the couple told ET about their honeymoon. “With our busy travel schedules, we didn’t want to travel too far. Jamaica seemed to have everything we wanted, with only a couple of short flights to get there.”

“Our ‘off’ season is in December,” the couple added. “Rather than try to squeeze in a honeymoon right after our wedding, we decided to wait until we knew we both could really unplug and properly celebrate.”
