Carly Pearce performed her true-to-life, very personal song “29” on last night’s (12/7) The Voice, and the song brought Kelly Clarkson to tears. Kelly stood during the entire performance and then wiped tears away as she applauded Carly.
Pearce was divorced in 2020 from Michael Ray after just months of marriage. Clarkson was also divorced in 2020 from her former manager Brandon Blackstock.
The Voice posted the performance on Twitter, writing, “In awe of @carlypearce’s stunning performance on #TheVoice.”
The chorus of “29” includes the lyrics, “The year that I got married and divorced / Held on for dear life but I still fell off the horse / From a Miss to Mrs. / Then the other way around / The year I was goin’ live it up / Now I’m never going to live it down.”
