Coca Cola Sound Stage at The Meteor
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. Over the last year, Carly has defied odds with her No. 1 debut “Every Little Thing,” scoring a chart-topping trifecta on SiriusXM’s The Highway with subsequent hits “If My Name Was Whiskey” and current single “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 twelve years. Aligned with sought-after producer/songwriter busbee (Katy Perry, Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Kelly Clarkson) and regarded as having “the best country debut of 2017” (Uproxx), Carly’s textured vocals and emotive songwriting prowess are emphasized across 13 tracks. Carly recently earned her first ACM Awards nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year. The show will broadcast live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Sunday, April 15 at 8:00P ET on the CBS. Among the many supporters, SiriusXM’s The Highway chose her for their all-genre “Class of 2017,” CMT rallied behind her as a Next Women of Country alum, Pandora featured her as a 2018 Artist to Watch, programmers nationwide voted her into the CRS New Faces Class of 2018 and People deemed her “the new voice of Country” while praise has poured over from media and industry to fans alike. With nearly 50 invitations to play the Grand Ole Opry, Carly previously joined the bill alongside Eric Church, Kelsea Ballerini, Martina McBride, Kip Moore and more. Following her sold-out run on Brett Young’s CALIVILLE TOUR, Carly heads out with Blake Shelton’s COUNTRY MUSIC FREAKS, Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES, Rascal Flatts’ BACK TO US and Luke Bryan’s WHAT MAKES YOU COUNTRY (including stadium dates) tours throughout 2018.
