Carly Pearce broke through in the US in 2017 with the massive country hit, “Every Little Thing” (also the title of her debut album), and will make her UK live debut on the main Arena stage at the Country to Country Festivals in March.
Her brand new single,“Closer To You” offers a sneek preview of Carly’s sophomore album being released later this year on Big Machine Records. Watch the brand new video here: https://BM.lnk.to/CTYPR. The lyric video features behind-the-scenes footage from the session: https://CarlyPearce.lnk.to/CloserToYouLyricPR.
Carly got her first job as a singer as a teenager in a country show at Dolly Parton’s famous Dollywood theme park in Tennessee where she performed 5 times a day. When she wasn’t at the theme park, Pearce was being homes schooled by her mother at a rented apartment nearby.
She had a great 2018 and was nominated for ACM Awards New Female Vocalist of the Year, won CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Every Little Thing” and Radio Disney Music Award The Freshest! – Radio Disney Country Best New Artist, plus score a coveted slot on four major tours with Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan (including stadium dates). In 2019, Carly will join Jason Aldean on his Ride All Night tour, starting in the US in May and running through to September and she has been nominated for Best New Country Artist at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards (taking place in March) – the only female artist nominated for the award.
Of her new single, “Closer To You” Carly says, “I’ve always been the type of artist who wants to record the best songs, even if I didn’t have a hand in writing them. ‘Closer To You’ is one of those songs that instantly spoke to me and painted a beautiful picture of where I’m at right now. I’m so excited to share this next chapter with my fans and hope they love it as much as I do!”
She returned to the studio with frequent collaborator and esteemed producer Busbee to record the song which Rolling Stone described as, “An up-tempo ode to being in love that melds Nineties country slickness with a bit of R&B and nods to her traditionalist roots, thanks to the dobro playing of her longtime band member Josh Matheny. It also showcases Pearce’s unique vocal command, which bends and holds the notes in unexpected ways and taps effortlessly at the top of her range.”
CARLY PEARCE Every Little Thing
Big Machine – out now
Includes the No. 1 single “Every Little Thing”
“Music is all I’ve ever known, all I’ve dreamed of, and now more than I could have imagined growing up in Taylor Mill, Kentucky,” explained Carly. “My journey has been long but so worth it each time I hear ‘Every Little Thing’ on the radio or sung back to me from a crowd. I’m so grateful and excited to share more of the songs I wrote alongside some of my biggest inspirations and those where others penned the words of my story. I hope this album will be worth the wait … I know it has been for me!”
Collaborating in both writing and recording with sought-after producer Busbee (Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson), the 13-track album reflects Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting sensibilities across eight of the tracks. From the regional Bluegrass band she joined at age 11 to being homeschooled at 16 so she could take a job singing hours away, her passion has grown over the last nine years in Nashville. Her tenacity has shaped not only her character but come alive throughout her lyrics and performances, earning coveted spots on the road with Kelsea Ballerini, Kip Moore and Hunter Hayes.
