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 35 invitations to play the Grand Ole Opry and joining the bill with notable artists such as Martina McBride, Kip Moore, Cole Swindell, 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,” which is on the cusp of Top 20 at Country radio. The song first became a “Highway Find” last year on SiriusXM’s “The Highway” who also honored her one of their “Future Five for 2017,” prompting them to add another track “If My Name Was Whiskey” into rotation beginning June 23. 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. The Washington Post has also acknowledged Carly’s tenacity, recently highlighting her journey by providing unfiltered insight into years of hard work. The iHeart ON THE VERGE Artist will hit the road with Bobby Bones this summer on his FUNNY & ALONE COMEDY TOUR beginning June 30 in Fort Wayne, IN. Currently working on new music for her debut album on Big Machine Records with hit producer busbee (Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Maren Morris), 2017 is destined to be Carly’s breakout year.
