Plenty of people are worried about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, but for Carly Pearce, her fears are personal.

"Being inside and in the silence of my own thoughts has been interesting," Pearce admitted. "I'm struggling to not be fearful — my mom has very weak lungs and has basically been quarantining. Whether we are directly affected or not, we know someone or have a loved one who could severely be affected by this dangerous virus. This song has always been one of my favorites and these words rang so loud in my ears today. I hope they bring you a sense of peace and a little less fear."

Pearce, who like other artists is taking an indefinite hiatus, earlier acknowledged she was going to miss performing live.

"Played my last show for a little while tonight and I must say, it's a weird feeling," the Kentucky native noted. "Praying for everyone as we all try to process what is going on, and hopeful it will all get back on track soon. Sending lots of love as I head home."

"I've toured with so many amazing people but I'm really excited to be able to be touring with somebody or with a group that their fans are coming because they're song fans," Pearce told PopCulture.com. "They're fans of artistry, and it's just about the songwriting and I love that. And I feel like this is the first tour that I'm like this probably is like my echelon of fans."
