We knew that CARLY PEARCE had it BAD for MICHAEL RAY before they even started dating, but this takes it up a notch. She was so drawn to him that she HAD to break up with the guy she was dating.
She talked about it in a podcast. She kind of knew Michael, but the feelings came on real strong when they were performing at a radio event. Her people promised to find out if he was single, and she was all-in at that point.
Quote, "I'm like, 'Okay. I'm not single, but okay.' I remember I was dating somebody at the time, and I was like, 'I have to break this off, because even if it's not Michael Ray, I shouldn't feel this way about somebody else.' So I did."
