Carly Pearce Faces Pain of a Breakup in ‘Every Little Thing’ Video
Pearce packs tons of emotion into the video as she deals with the aftermath of a relationship gone wrong. She sits in each room in her house, reminiscing about her ex's presence whether cuddling on the bed or playfully brushing their teeth. A once intimate relationship is now replaced by the ghost of her ex's memory that has taken over her home and the special times they shared.
"Every little thing / I remember every little thing / The high, the hurt, the shine, the sting / Of every little thing" she sings while painfully walking down memory lane, reliving all the comforting moments, and some not-so-pleasant ones, from the past.

Co-written by Pearce, busbee and Emily Shackelton, "Every Little Thing" serves as her first official single after signing with Big Machine Label Group in January of 2017, joining a roster of stars like Taylor Swift, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett and more. The track has reached the Top 20 on both the Billboard US Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts.
"The production is sparse and vulnerable and haunting. And then you look at the fact that it's a female, and it's a ballad and it's a heartbreak song. I just feel like I've busted the door open on any sort of stereotype of what you can't break," Pearce tells Rolling Stone Country about "Every Little Thing." The up and coming singer-songwriter is also featured on Josh Abbott Band's 2016 single “Wasn’t That Drunk."
