Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde tell both sides of a cheating story in the Musical clip for their duo, “Never Wanted to Be That Girl”, which comes from Carly’s 29: written in stone album.
The clip is a dramatic mini-film that follows both Carly and Ashley as they realize their relationship is not what they thought it was and that they are both being lied to by a partner they trusted. Shot just outside of Nashville, the video was produced by Alexa campbell.
“What’s interesting about the song is that we could have blamed others in the love triangle, but we turned it inward,” Carly recalls. “It’s unique that two women who have never met are burnt by the same man and have exactly the same feelings. We intentionally kept the chorus the same to reflect that neither of them wanted to be in that position.
The two women also bring powerful acting chops to the table in this video. It’s no surprise: Ashley has already proven herself to be a talented actress in other music videos for her songs like “Martha Divine”.
In a few days, Ashley and Carly will take the CMA Awards stage to perform “Never Wanted to Be That Girl”. The show airs Nov. 10 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
