CARLY PEARCE made a bold entrance with “Diamondback” during her debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. In symbolic formation and donning strategic sparkle, the chart-topping artist and her band utilized minimal production to create the song’s twisted fairytale vibes. Watch the CMA Female Vocalist of the Year belt out fiery lyrics during the NBC late night staple’s first show of 2022:

Oh, what I thought I wanted let me down But who's laughing now Keep the house, keep the truck Go downtown, get too drunk Kiss a one-night stand with a butterfly on her back Take the bed where you used to lie Keep the friends I never liked And the happy ever after welcome mat You ain't gonna get this diamond back No, never ever gettin' this diamond back It's in a pawn shop next to the laundromat You ain't gonna get this diamond back

“Out of such a dark time, light keeps pouring in with these songs. I’m in awe how music fans in cities across the country have embraced me. I truly can’t believe our first performance of the year was in the Fallon studio! My fans already shout all the words, but I hope a few more sassy voices will be singing along to ‘Diamondback’ with us now. What is that they say about a woman scorned,” laughs Carly. The track opens her critically-acclaimed album 29: WRITTEN IN STONE (Big Machine Records), which landed on several 2021 year-end accolades lists from Billboard, NPR, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, No Depression and more. This Spring, Carly will take the entire collection of songs back on the road for another leg of THE 29 TOUR following a sold-out inaugural run. Partnering with PLUS1, $1 of each ticket sold will support tornado recovery efforts in the Taylor Mill native’s home state of Kentucky. In addition to her own headline dates, Carly will join Kenny Chesney’s 2022 HERE AND NOW TOUR. Her duet with Ashley McBryde, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”, continues to climb the Country radio charts as eager fans gear up for the live shows. For more details, visit
