ASCAP + MUSICROW Host Inaugural Unveiling
Full-Bodied Single “Hide The Wine” Aging Nicely in Top 20
NASHVILLE, TN (August 14, 2018) – For the singer/songwriter who left high school to perform at Dollywood, cleaned AirBnBs to self-finance her music and traded center stage for background vocals, even CARLY PEARCE was a bit surprised at the dreams fulfilled over the last year as she became “Country’s ‘it’ girl” (ABC News Radio). Yet, the spark behind 2018’s big female breakout “Every Little Thing,” has only ignited her passion and spread to those all around. Industry trade magazine MusicRow today hosted a first-ever cover reveal alongside ASCAP to celebrate Carly gracing the Artist Roster (Aug/Sept. 2018) issue, out now.
“Writing and performing is all I’ve ever wanted, and moments like this, I don’t take for granted. Thank you,MusicRow and ASCAP!” expressed Carly. “I am so honored to be on the cover of a magazine I’ve been reading for years and to be a part of this special reveal.”
Both early supporters of Carly, the organizations unveiled the flaxen-haired and bright-smiled vocalist against a charcoal backdrop and bold crimson masthead. The festivities commemorated her inaugural industry trade cover and joined fellow collaborators who have ventured to Nashville for a common love … music.
Like those gathered at the party, she too understands setbacks, yet perseveres. “Little did I know the impact early friendships would have. ASCAP hosted a ‘support group’ for female songwriter-artists that not only opened doors professionally but reminded me how small communities can rally around each other. Nashville helped me find me. Embracing happy moments or where I’ve messed up, it’s important for me to share it all.”
Establishing herself as a live performer who connects with her reality-meets-glamour embrace on life, Carly has earned a spot as the only female on tours with Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan in 2018. She is one of only three women to see their debut single hit No. 1 on the Country charts in the past 12 years as “Every Little Thing” made the ascent and steered a chart-topping trifecta on SiriusXM’s The Highway with “If My Name Was Whiskey” and “Hide The Wine” following from her Big Machine Records album. The latter, which she performed last week on ABC’s CMA Fest special, is currently on tap in the Top 20 and maturing nicely at Country radio. The summer has also seen Carly take home the CMT Music Awards Breakthrough Video of the Year and Radio Disney Music Award The Freshest! – Radio Disney Country Best New Artist.
