Country stars Carly Pearce and Michael Ray have called it quits.
After just eight months of marriage, the “Every Little Thing” singer-songwriter filed for divorce from the “Her World or Mine” singer this Friday, their reps confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.
“This was a hard decision. It wasn’t something she wanted to have to do,” a source close to Pearce said ”
Ray, 32, and Pearce, 30, last appeared in public together on June 6, when they both performed without a live audience at the Grand Ole Opry with Lee Brice and Steve Wariner who sat between them on stage during their performances.
Ahead of the performance, Ray told PEOPLE that he and Pearce were splitting their time in quarantine between their place in Nashville and their families’ homes. He said they spent a month together in the coastal Alabama home of Pearce’s parents, where they kept busy by going on a lot of “wine walks.”
