Being part of the country music community is something special. It’s sorta like a club. Looking out for each other, hanging out with each other, supporting each other in every little aspect. And sometimes stars just happen to fall in love with each other. Looking back over the history of country music, we’ve had some iconic couples associated with country music…
Johnny and June
Garth and Trisha
Blake and Miranda
Tim and Faith
And it looks like we have our next country music power couple in the making! Carly Pearce and Michael Ray- two of the hottest rising stars in the genre.
On July 8th, RaeLynn posted a picture on Instagram and Michael was in the background talking on the phone. Carly commented with laughing emojis and RaeLynn replied saying “@carlypearce I wonder who he’s on the phone with?” Carly replied to that with heart eyes emojis.
Earlier this week, Michael played on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night TV show, and Carly posted about it on her Instagram story saying “Oh hayyyy @MichaelRayMusic… You’re as star and REALLY, REALLY CUTE.” With more heart eye emojis.
Rumors were flying around all over social media with people wondering if this was indeed a thing.
Well, it seems like Carly and Michael made an announcement of sorts last night as both posted the same photo…
And then one random night at the Nashville Palace changed everything. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/z4pUlrbQTJ

So it appears, these two ARE together. We’re not saying they are in L-word, but these two appear to be SO happy together! Just look at the smiles on both their faces. This makes my heart explode as A.) They’re both such good looking people and B.) They’re both some of the nicest people in country music. We’ve worked with both in interviews and Michael played our festival last year.
We send the best of luck to the new couple. We hope that you two keep each other smiling like that for many years to come!
