Carly Pearce and Michael Ray Split Wasn't a 'Quarantine Realization,' Says Source

Also in January 2019, Pearce told PEOPLE that she wanted her and Ray to be together "for life."

"We always say, 'There are going to be highs and lows for each of us in this career, and it makes it harder because we're doing the same thing,'" she said. "Yes, I'm a female artist. He's a male artist. We're still artists competing for spots on the chart. But at the end of the day, I'll walk through any of it. Obviously, we are workaholics, both of us, from sunup to sundown. If something needs to happen with work, we get it. So we're in this 100 percent, but it isn't our everything anymore, and we have something to come home. My home is now where he is. We're creating a life so much bigger than Carly Pearce and Michael Ray."

Pearce had said she would love for her and Ray to have the "kind of legacy both separately and together" that longtime couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have. The two have a duet together, "Finish Your Sentences," which was released off of Pearce's self-titled sophomore album in February.
