Artist of the Month

AUGUST

CARLY PEARCE

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 local band, at 16 quit high school for a job performing at Dollywood while being homeschooled and learned humility working odd jobs upon moving to Nashville. Now she’s defying odds with her No. 1 debut “Every Little Thing,” which steered a chart-topping trifecta on SiriusXM’s The Highway that also includes “If My Name Was Whiskey” and “Hide The Wine.” With the GOLD-certified title track from her highly-acclaimed debut album EVERY LITTLE THING (Big Machine Records), Carly became the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015 and one of only three to accomplish the feat in 13 years. Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting prowess are emphasized across the full 13 tracks, which Uproxx regarded as “the best country debut of 2017.” Earning her first ACM Awards nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year in April, Carly 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. She is currently the only female nominated for iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist, which airs March 14 on FOX. Her sound has always honored the legendary voices before her, evident with nearly 60 invitations to play the Grand Ole Opry. In 2018, Carly held a coveted slot on four major tours with Blake Shelton, Thomas Rhett, Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan (including stadium dates) inspiring ABC News Radio to boast: “ 'Every Little Thing' points to Carly Pearce as country's ‘it’ girl.” She is currently co-headlining THE WAY BACK TOUR 2019 across 11 cities with Russell Dickerson and will join Jason Aldean’s RIDE ALL NIGHT TOUR this summer. Carly is aligned once again with sought-after producer and longtime collaborator busbee (Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson), with the recent release of her new single, “Closer To You.” -via CarlyPearce.com
