Born into the bluegrass brawn of Kentucky, Carly Pearce has never known a moment that Country music wasn’t her destined path. At the young age of 11 she began touring with a small band and by 16 was performing at Dollywood six times a day, five times a week. Over the past eight years in Nashville, the CMT Next Women of Country alum has been blazing her own trail with the depth of her songwriting, more than 30 invitations to play the Grand Ole Opry and joining the bill with notable artists such as Kip Moore, Eli Young Band, Hunter Hayes and Lucy Hale of Pretty Little Liars.
In 2016, Carly earned a coveted opening slot on Kelsea Ballerini’s THE FIRST TIME TOUR and celebrated her first Top 40 hit, “Wasn’t That Drunk,” a sultry collaboration with Josh Abbott Band. Fans and critics have taken notice of her “earthy, textured voice” (Wide Open Country) with her first single “Every Little Thing.” The song recently impacted Country radio after becoming a “Highway Find” on SiriusXM’s “The Highway” who also honored her one of their “Future Five for 2017.”
Rolling Stone Country, The Huffington Post, Country Living, Sounds Like Nashville, The Boot, Whiskey Riff and One Country have all named Carly an “Artist to Watch” in addition to being selected as a CMT Listen Up “17 for 2017” artist. Currently working on new music for her debut album on Big Machine Label Group with hit producer busbee (Maren Morris, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum), 2017 is destined to be Carly’s breakout year.
