Carly Pearce recently performed at the Grand Ole Opry and used the opportunity to debut a new song, dedicated to her late friend and producer Busbee, who died in September. The track, “Show Me Around,” is a hopeful message looking forward to the day of reunion with a departed loved one.
Carly shared. “Busbee has three little girls and a beautiful wife, and he painted this picture of Heaven that was so beautiful to me, that Busbee had a map and he was getting the lay of the land and figuring out all of the places, just like Disneyland, that he wanted to show his family and show all of us. If anybody’s ever lost anybody, this felt like a really cool way to look at our loved ones that are going to meet us in Heaven and show us around.”
Busbee died in September 2019 at age 43 after being diagnosed with glioblastoma eight weeks before his death. Pearce wrote on Instagram after the producer’s passing, “You gave my music a place in this world. I’ll cherish the 2 albums, songs, talks, laughs & memories we shared over the years. My heart is broken, but the legacy of your talents and your heart will live on in all of the artists and people you touched. I love you, Busbee.”
