Carly Pearce Brings An End To Her 29 Era With Release Of New Duet, “We Don’t Fight Anymore”
In February 2021, Carly Pearce released her critically acclaimed EP 29. In September 2021, she followed up by releasing a full studio album titled 29: Written in Stone. The album included some of Pearce’s most impactful and popular songs to date, including “What He Didn’t Do,” “Never Wanted to Be That Girl,” “Dear Miss Loretta,” and “Show Me Around.”
For some time now, Pearce made it clear she was working on her next “era.” In early June, she started teasing the release of a new song, titled “We Don’t Fight Anymore.”
Pearce later revealed that “We Don’t Fight Anymore” is a collaboration with Chris Stapleton. She said it was a dream of hers to record a song with him.

“This song embodies a place that I think, if we are honest with ourselves, we’ve all felt at some point in a relationship,” Pearce said about the track. “The distance that feels heartbreaking, yet you’re also indifferent. I’ve always been a writer who never wanted to shy away from the “uncomfortable” moments in all of our lives, and this song feels too important not to share. @chrisstapleton, you made my dreams come true by lending your incredible talents to this song.”
“We Don’t Fight Anymore” Released On June 16 Along With An Official Lyric Video
Now, fans can listen to “We Don’t Fight Anymore” and check out its official lyric video. The song has Pearce singing lead, with Stapleton jumping in to sing backing vocals.
“We Don’t Fight Anymore” details a relationship that has fizzled out and lost its spark. Despite this, the couple remains together, though they’re merely going through the motions.
Some of the most heartbreaking lyrics are in the chorus, which goes:
“We don’t yell ’cause what the hell difference would it make? We don’t cuss and we don’t care enough to even hate. We could tear up the house, we could burn the whole thing down. But boy what for? ‘Cause we don’t even fight anymore.”
