The down-to-earth female vocalist has quickly carved out her own highly honest, emotionally compelling place in a very Pop-Country world. 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. With the chart-topping, PLATINUM-certified title track from EVERY LITTLE THING, Carly became the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015. A loyal advocate of Country music’s legacy and future, it’s no surprise an institution like the Grand Ole Opry has invited her for more than 70 performances since her debut while the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum® partnered on Unbroken Circle: Exploring Country Music History with Carly Pearce. Adding slots on major tours with Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean as well as Old Dominion throughout 2020, Carly has become “Country’s ‘it’ girl” (ABC Radio) while in pursuit of her childhood dream.
