Carly Pearce filed for divorce from Michael Ray on Friday, June 19.

Country music artists Carly Pearce and Michael Ray have decided to go their separate ways after 8 months of marriage. Their reps confirmed the news to PEOPLE.

Ray and Pearce were last publicly seen together on June 6, where they both were performing at The Grand Ole Opry for the Opry’s livestream show called Circle Sessions. Pearce and Ray performed alongside Lee Brice and Steve Wariner who sat between the couple on the Opry stage.

Pearce and Ray were professional acquaintances for a while before meeting up at a friendly get-together at Pearce’s house in June 2018. During the get-together, they both felt the chemistry between them and decided to go out on the town to Nashville Palace, a favorite for them both.

They went public with their relationship on social media on July 18, 2018. Pearce’s captioned the photo:

“And then one random night at the Nashville Palace changed everything. ❤️”

In December 2018, Ray proposed to Pearce during a family vacation in Tulum, Mexico.

The country couple married October 6, 2019, in a small ceremony, on a farm in Nashville, in front of 100 of their closest friends and family.

We wish them both the very best.
