This is not a drill!!! The queen is coming!!! Reigning CMA and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, Carly Pearce, has announced her first headline tour of the UK and Ireland this autumn. The eagerly-awaited shows are part of a European trip and will take place in September, as follows:
Thursday, September 15th - LONDON Islington Assembly Hall
Friday, September 16th - MANCHESTER Gorilla
Saturday, September 17th - GLASGOW Oran Mor
Monday, September 19th - DUBLIN Whelan’s
Pearce’s album 29: Written In Stone became an instant classic upon its release in 2021 and was crowned Holler's Record Of The Year. The committed songwriter navigated disappointment, loss and resilience across the 15-track collection. The arc of realising, accepting and moving on wiser for the experience, resonating with both fans and music critics alike. Pearce has grown into a woman who embraces the genre’s forward progression while staying rooted in traditional country musicality, while confident in what she wants to say.
In addition to her CMA and ACM Female Vocalist/Artist of the Year Awards, she was nominated for CMA and ACM Album of the Year for 29: Written In Stone. She also took home her second consecutive ACM Music Event of the Year Award for her single 'Never Wanted To Be That Girl' with Ashley McBryde, following the Lee Brice duet win with their 2x Platinum-certified single 'I Hope You’re Happy Now', which also won ACM Single of the Year and CMA Musical Event of the Year.
Last year, Pearce became a Member of the Grand Ole Opry, invited by her hero Dolly Parton. It brought things full circle for the Kentucky native, who left home at 16 to take a job at Dollywood in the hopes of living her childhood dream.
