Carly Pearce has released a stirring tribute to her champion, writer/producer busbee, and his family following the late producer’s death in in late 2019, called “Show Me Around.” The song was penned alongside their frequent collaborators Emily Shackelton and Ben West and explores the inspiration and legacy busbee left for his wife and children.
“As my mentor and friend, busbee helped me share the parts of my own life that I could only explain through music,” said Pearce. “He holds such a sweet place in my heart, and I truly hope ‘Show Me Around’ brings comfort to his wife Jess and their three little girls. At his funeral, a songwriter that all of us in Nashville love named Barry Dean gave a speech that painted the most beautiful picture of Heaven. There is no way to ease the pain of losing someone you love, this felt like a really hopeful way to look at our loved ones meeting us again one day and showing us around,” said Pearce.
The song evokes just how special their friendship truly was following the debut of Pearce’s Platinum-certified, No. 1 “Every Little Thing,” and Platinum-certified, No. 1 duet with Lee Brice “I Hope You’re Happy Now.” Pearce shared some inspiration on the new song in a special video.
