NASHVILLE, TN (November 5, 2020) – In a year full of uncertainty, CARLY PEARCE has leaned into the comforts that ignited a childhood dream of singing Country music. She will debut her cautionary tale, “Next Girl” (Big Machine Records), on The Kelly Clarkson Show next Tuesday (11/10) and chat with the multi-hyphenated host about early beginnings at Dollywood, reconnecting with the genre’s 90’s sounds and excitement of being the most nominated new artist at the CMA Awards. Check local listings to watch the daytime show and as Carly sings her latest single, which has already garnered nearly 13 million global streams.

Carly will next join Lee Brice to perform their PLATINUM-certified chart-topper “I Hope You’re Happy Now” during the CMA Awards LIVE from Nashville on Wednesday (11/11) at 8|7c on ABC. Amassing 321+ million global streams with the hit, Carly is up for New Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Musical Event of the Year and Video of the Year. She penned the highly nominated track alongside Luke Combs, Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana.

With music that transcends the moment, Carly honors Country music’s legacy and future to connect the genre’s eras. The Kentucky native has spent the last few months collaborating with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne in the studio and is expected to share more new music later this year.
