Go ahead and “Hide the Wine.” It looks like Carly Pearce may be the one Michael Ray is singing “Kiss You in the Morning” about these days.
If you’re an avid follower of either country hitmaker on social media, you may’ve noticed the two engaging in some friendly flirting on Instagram.
Wednesday afternoon, the “One That Got Away” singer all but confirmed that he and the “Every Little Thing” vocalist have been seeing each other, when asked about it during a group interview in Nashville.
“I mean, I think when it comes time to talk about the dating life, it’ll come out,” Michael said good-naturedly. “But she’s a great girl. I think that she’s an incredible person. And right now, everything on both ends are about, you know, both our singles and both our music and, it’ll come out.”
“She’s great,” he added. “I’m a big fan. I’ll leave it at that.”
Later during the interview, Michael seemed to refer to Carly again, when asked about how he spends his time off the road.
“The little bit of free time that we have is spent mainly at my house, not doing too much,” he laughed. “But, yeah, that’s changed a little bit, you know. Some person got added into it, so it’s been better.”
“My time off’s been better,” Michael added. “She’s a homebody too, so we connect real well. So a lot of old country music is listened to.”
This weekend, Michael plays Wyoming’s Cheyenne Frontier Days, before doing fairs in Hastings, Nebraska and Minot, North Dakota. Carly will be in Tampa and West Palm Beach, Florida on Rascal Flatts‘ Back to Us Tour.
