NEW YORK, NY (December 24, 2021) – CMA Female Vocalist of the Year CARLY PEARCE brought some holiday cheer to CBS Mornings with an intimate version of “O Holy Night” and spoke about her life-changing season. Her latest album 29: WRITTEN IN STONE (Big Machine Records) landed on several year-end Best Of lists from Billboard, NPR, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, but it was the struggles leading up to the accolades that Carly reflected on with anchors Gayle King, Tony Dokoupil and Nate Burleson. For a girl who left her Kentucky home as a teenager to perform at Dollywood and cleaned AirBnBs to make ends meet in pursuit of a dream, the Grand Ole Opry member and chart-topping songwriter is grateful for the newfound embrace of her truths. Watch the segment here and stream “O Holy Night” here.

“I felt so many people just wrap their arms around me in a time when I thought I might break. But especially on Christmas Eve, I’m reminded of my faith and the unwavering support my grandparents had in me. I know they are rejoicing and looking down feeling proud,” shared Carly.

Carly will continue the celebration with a performance during the New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash, airing live December 31 (8-11:00 PM, ET/PT, 11:30 PM-1:30 AM, ET/PT) on CBS and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

As 2022 begins, so does another leg of THE 29 TOUR where Carly will perform 29: WRITTEN IN STONE in its entirety each night. During the previous run of sold-out headline shows, The Tennessean noted the, “classic country truth-telling where Pearce cuts no corners in bringing listeners on her journey back from rock bottom following a divorce in 2020.” The Taylor Mill native has partnered with PLUS1 so $1 of every ticket will go to support tornado recovery efforts in her home state of Kentucky. She will also join Kenny Chesney’s 2022 HERE AND NOW TOUR. For tickets and more details, visit
