After only eight months of being married, the “Every Little Thing” singer-songwriter filed for divorce from the “Her World or Mine” singer last Friday (6/19/20). Michael Ray and Cary Pearce’s reps confirmed to PEOPLE.
“This was a hard decision. It wasn’t something she wanted to have to do,” a source close to Pearce tells PEOPLE. “This hasn’t been a quarantine realization — it was a last resort.”
Ray, 32, and Pearce, 30, last appeared in public together on June 6, when they both performed without a live audience at the Grand Ole Opry. They were joined on the bill by Steve Wariner and Lee Brice (Pearce’s duet partner on their #1 song “I Hope You’re Happy Now”).
This news breaks my heart. I’m friends with both Michael and Carly. They are some of the most amazing people I’ve come to know.
Hope they get through this and truly find their happiness in life. You can read more here.
