Carly Pearce weaves a poignant narrative of a love that has grown cold in her song “We Don’t Fight Anymore,” featuring Chris Stapleton. Actress Lucy Hale plays a pivotal role in bringing this emotional story to life in the music video.
The “We Don’t Fight Anymore” music video begins with Hale entering the couple’s home, where she finds her husband (portrayed by Shiloh Fernandez) sitting in the living room. She quietly removes her shoes and gazes out the window as a storm approaches. There’s a palpable distance between them, and they exchange only fleeting glances before Hale decides to leave the room.
In the subsequent scenes, the couple is seen lying in bed, with Hale facing away from Fernandez. At one point, she reaches out for his embrace, but her hand grasps empty air.
Other clips show them going about their separate daily routines — he heads off to work, while she takes care of household chores.
One night, Hale goes to bed, while Fernandez falls asleep in the living room. A fire suddenly breaks out, and they both scramble to escape the burning house. As they stand outside, they watch their home engulfed in flames. Rather than rushing towards each other, they gaze blankly at the burning house.
The fire serves as a symbolic representation of their relationship, suggesting that perhaps this dramatic event will be the catalyst for the change they needed.
Despite being a music video, the nearly five-minute “We Don’t Fight Anymore” feature is characterized by a poignant silence. At one point, Pearce even pauses the song to allow the silence to deeply resonate with the audience.
“We Don’t Fight Anymore” is a deeply personal track for Carly Pearce, and it’s included on her upcoming fourth studio album. The song holds significant emotional weight for Pearce, as she has recently experienced both a divorce and a breakup from Riley King. Interestingly, she reached out to Chris Stapleton to collaborate on the song by sliding into the direct messages of his wife, Morgane, on Instagram.
In the near future, Pearce is set to kick off a six-week tour called the “Country Music Made Me Do It Tour.” The tour comprises 12 dates scattered throughout October and November, and it coincides with the release of her latest track, “Country Music Made Me Do It.”
