Many couples will divide the holidays between their families, spending Thanksgiving with one family and Christmas with the other. That's the route that Carly Pearce and Michael Ray have taken in the past, and this year, as they celebrate their first Thanksgiving as a married couple, and as they look forward to the future.

“We did the holidays last year together, so we’re flip-flopping this year," Carly explains in a statement from her label. "It’s gonna be Thanksgiving in Florida with Michael’s family and Christmas with my family in Alabama. 

"But we’re lucky that we have family that completely understands and gets it, and hopefully one day when we have kids, we can combine ‘em all and it’ll be great.”
