Carly Pearce has a couple causes that are near and dear to her heart, and 2019 just might be her chance to make a difference. She tells us: [“Two things come to mind for me. Neglected elderly – I have a very big heart for just elderly people in general. I grew up with a lot of elderly. I have a lot of elderly people close to me. That’s very precious to me. And a lot of women have had different struggles of body image issues throughout the years and have struggled and had to figure out that area. And I think so many women go through that and I would love to be able to do some sort of body image.”] SOUNDCUE (:25 OC: . . . of body image.)

Carly’s latest single, “Closer to You,” is climbing the charts.
