This spring, Carly Pearce is hitting the road for the 29 tour, where she will perform her biggest hits including "Hide the Wine" and "Every Little Thing."
Although Carly may be performing her most personal music to date, she's quick to see the positive in being honest with fans. "I'm able to express myself in a way every single night that almost feels like I go to therapy every night," she said. "I get to communicate onstage with so many fans."
" is my third album, but I feel like it's my first in a lot of ways," Carly shared. "I think that I moved to Nashville to be a country music purest and this is the first album that really from front to back shows that."
"I'm really close with my band and we usually have a drink and sometimes we do a pre-show shot of whiskey or I have a glass of wine," Carly said. "We listen to some kind of hype music and usually it's my bass player choosing. He usually chooses Beyoncé."
If you run into Carly backstage, you may spot her two furry "security guards."
When looking back on her childhood, Carly remembers watching LeAnn Rimes, The Chicks, Lee Ann Womack, Alan Jackson and other artists on tour. "They were part of those formative years where I was like, ‘That! I don't know what that is. I don't know how you get there, but that's what I wanna do,'" Carly said.
"So many things in the last year have exceeded my expectations of what could even happen to me in one calendar year," Carly said. "I think I just want to be somebody that continues to make an impact on country music and if I do that, that's going to make my dreams come true."
After wrapping up the 29 tour in April, Carly will serve as an opening act for Kenny Chesney's 2022 stadium tour. "He is so down-to-earth," Carly shared. "He truly is still the same East Tennessee boy that he was growing up wanting to do this and he's been such a good mentor for me in the last year and I'm so excited just to get to go to the Kenny Chesney school of touring."
