"Get your #StretchyPants ready because the holidays are almost here and you know what that means…" she captioned the video adding a turkey emoji.

On Friday she added: "Benefiting the amazing @thestore_nashville, co-founded by @bradpaisley & @kimberlywilliamspaisley to help those in need."

Carrie shared the brilliant new single with fans

"A song that will forever be sung every time the sweatpants come out after a long day," commented one fan as another added: "Oh to be a fly on the wall when you guys were writing this one! Can’t even imagine how funny it was."

A portion of the proceeds from streams and downloads of Stretchy Pants will be donated to The Store, which the pair launched in 2020.

"This has been our dream," Kimberly told People magazine in 2021. "People will be able to come and shop with dignity and make choices for their family." After a year, they had delivered enough free food to make nearly 1.3 million meals.

"Delivering these meals, it really is emotional," Kimberly said. "When you pull up and they're waiting, they're waiting in the door. And I think, 'What would they be doing if we weren't showing up today?'"
