NASHVILLE, TN (June 14, 2018) – She may have made her CMA Fest Nissan Stadium and CMT Music Awards debuts last week, but last night, CARLY PEARCE humbly walked onto one of the most revered stages in Country Music – the Grand Ole Opry®. Marking the 50th time since she stepped into the famed circle on May 30, 2015, Opry member Jeannie Seely and 650 WSM host Bill Cody proudly introduced the budding superstar. The momentous occasion was not lost on Carly, who gleefully told the crowd she held such a special place in her heart for the Opry and would still be as just excited to sing here for the next fifty years. “I love Country music and Country music fans more than anything and the Grand Ole Opry will always be the most precious thing to me,” expressed Carly.

The Kentucky native kicked off her set with heart-crushing ballad “If My Name Was Whiskey” before launching into her history-making No. 1 “Every Little Thing” and capping the celebration off with her high-spirited single “Hide The Wine.” Filled with gratitude, Carly’s sound has always honored the legendary voices before her and those she too hopes to guide along their way. As a loyal advocate of the Opry, often asking to play on rare nights at home in Nashville, it was no surprise General Manager Sally Williams and mentor Seely were beaming side-stage. Her parents, friends, Big Machine Records family and management joined with cake, flowers and gifts in hand.
