CARLY PEARCE once said that “Closer to You” is about being in a long distance relationship. Well, even though she recorded it before getting engaged to MICHAEL RAY, here they are in a similar situation.
She says, “Our life revolves around touring and being away so we have to go to each other. [What] the song says is he’s now home to me. It doesn’t matter if I’m in my own home, and that’s something I’ve never experienced and is really special.”
It seems like Carly gushes about Michael every chance she gets, so somebody asked if maybe she’s over doing it. She doesn’t think so. She said, “People always ask me, ‘Is it really as real as it is online?’ And it really is.
“He really is that wonderful. It was worth every single heartbreak and failed relationship that I’d ever had. He’s the real deal, and I’m really lucky.”
While we’re on the subject: “Live at the Opry” released video of Carly performing “Closer to You“. It’s from her show there back in November.
