Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde recently shared a music video for their new duet “Never Wanted To Be That Girl.”
The video, directed by Alexa Campbell, tells the story of the parallel lives of two women who learn that they’re in relationships with the same man. The country music singer-songwriters play the role of wife and mistress of the cheating partner, depicting the empathy they find for each other.
“What’s interesting about this song is we could have gone to a place of blame on the others in the love triangle, but we turned it inward. It’s unique that two women who never meet are getting burned by the same man and having the exact same feelings,” Pearce said. “We intentionally kept the chorus the same to reflect that neither wanted to be in this position.”
Summing up the message of the music video, Pearce wrote on Instagram, “As we grow up, we learn that not all love stories end happily ever after.”
“This song isn’t really about being the other woman or even being messed around on as much as it’s about these two people who are exhibiting behaviors they normally wouldn’t – checking text messages, making excuses for why their dates are only on Tuesdays – and realizing it’s all because of the same person,” McBryde said.
