Leading into the holiday season, CARLY PEARCE has a lot to be thankful for surrounding her momentous breakthrough year. On Friday night (11/17), her Big Machine family surprised Carly during her set on Brett Young’s sold-out CALIVILLE TOUR stop in Nashville. Celebrating recent sales and radio milestones, the special plaque commemorates Carly’s first No. 1 single, the GOLD-certified hit “Every Little Thing.” The blockbuster title track from her debut album (Big Machine Records) also earns the top spot in Canada this week on the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay charts, following her initial reign in the US last week. Carly has the highest charting solo female debut since July 2015, joining an elite group as one of only three women to accomplish this feat in the past twelve years. The Pandora “Artist to Watch” is also the only solo female with a charting Country debut single to achieve GOLD certification in 2017 with over 500,000 in consumption sales.
Fans throughout the tour have been treated to live performances of more album tracks, including Carly’s next single. “Hide the Wine” officially impacts Country radio December 4, listen now.
Carly will join the lineup for Jack Daniel’s Music City Midnight: New Year’s Eve in Nashville (#NashvilleNYE) alongside Keith Urban, Maren Morris, Cheap Trick, Jonny P and the Fisk Jubilee Singers at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park. In early 2018, she heads out with both Blake Shelton’s COUNTRY MUSIC FREAKS and Thomas Rhett’s LIFE CHANGES TOURS. For a full list of tour dates and more, visit CarlyPearce.com.
