Carly Pearce and Michael Ray Share Adorable Photos From Trip to Australia


Carly Pearce and Michael Ray are deep in the throes of planning their upcoming nuptials and one of the things we’re sure they’re discussing is their honeymoon destination. It’ll be a great time to relax and press reset before they get back to their busy careers. But it will also be difficult to top their most recent exotic trip to Australia.

Of course, it was a working trip as both Carly and Michael had concerts down under, but the two did squeeze in some time to…squeeze a koala bear as we saw on Michael’s Instagram page. Apparently, the koala was doing some squeezing, too, so the country singer warned him in the caption, “#WatchThatHand.”

For Michael, though, cuddling his fiancée is preferred over any silly old bear, and in another photo, he replicates the image but puts Carly in the place of the koala.

Carly actually got up close and personal with a variety of the indigenous fauna. In fact, she got really intimate with an emu, but also shared a snack with kangaroos, and had a little chat with a…what the heck is that?

As mentioned, though, it was a  working trip for the pair and they managed to not just share downtime together, but also stage time, much to the delight of their audience.

Back in the states, Michael is gearing up for a busy fair and festival tour season along with more shows with Old Dominion while Carly is readying herself as the opening act on Jason Aldean’s “Ride All Night Tour” with Kane Brown.
