It all started with a video conference call yesterday.
It was that call that brought good news to Carly Pearce and Lee Brice yesterday in the form of a gold plaque certifying half a million downloads of their Top 10 hit, “I Hope You’re Happy Now” in both the U.S. and Canada. Carly and Lee were conferenced with their respective label and management reps to share in the moment. How exciting!
Carly said, “This is so awesome! It has been really important for me to candidly show my story to fans, and these moments prove how much we can connect when we open up. Lee, your voice was the perfect match . . . you brought ‘I Hope You’re Happy Now’ to another stratosphere.”
Carly shared the good news on Instagram. Check it out!

THANK YOU for continuing to change everything for me with this song. YAYYYY!!! 🎉
Lee said, “Thank ya’ll so much! Carly, you really wrote a great song. I am so happy and blessed to be a part of this with you.”
