Reigning CMA Awards Female Vocalist + Five-Time Nominee This Year Tapped for Multiple Performances, Airing November 9 on ABC
Commanding the stage and singing with conviction, Carly Pearceperformed her first-ever headline show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium last night (10/26). The reigning ACM and CMA Female Artist/Vocalist of the Year delivered a 90-min set of her “songs that sound tailor-made for each’s life story” (Tennessean) across her three studio albums as fans hung onto every word. Leading the crowd in a sing-along on songs like “Should’ve Known Better,” “Next Girl” and “Hide The Wine,” Pearce bared her soul with “29,” “Show Me Around” and breakthrough debut single “Every Little Thing.” During the sold-out evening, Pearce brought out special guests including Bill Anderson(“Someday It’ll All Make Sense”), Ricky Skaggs (“Blue Moon Of Kentucky”), Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox(“What Hurts The Most”) and opener Jackson Dean (“I Hope You’re Happy Now”). The Grand Ole Opry Member returns to the iconic venue tonight (10/27) for a second sold-out show.
“All of my country music dreams are coming true tonight,” shared Pearce from the historic Ryman stage. “You only get to play the Ryman like this once and these shows represent all of my hard work coming to fruition. This moment is all I’ve dreamt of and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for letting me live this life.”
Fiercely rooted in the classics, the girl who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood has grown into a woman who embraces the genre’s forward progression and is confident in what she wants to say. Tomorrow (10/28), the Taylor Mill native will see another dream come true when she is inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall Of Fame.
The CMT Artist of the Year’s whirlwind year shows no signs of slowing down as her latest GOLD-certified single “What He Didn’t Do” continues to resonate, amassing over 135 million streams to date while rising to Top 25 at Country Radio this week. Next up, Pearce will defend her Female Vocalist title and vie for Single, Song, Musical Event and Music Video of the Year (“Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with Ashley McBryde) at the 2022 CMA Awards, plus perform a song off her lauded 29: WRITTEN IN STONE album as well as join Kelsea Ballerini and Kelly Clarkson for their new collaboration “YOU’RE DRUNK, GO HOME,” airing November 9 on ABC.
