Carly Pearce is currently enjoying her second top-25 hit with “Hide the Wine,” on the heels of her breakthrough chart-topping single, “Every Little Thing.”
The Kentucky native certainly seems to be the “it” girl this year when it comes to new female vocalists, as she heads out on no fewer than four major tours.
“I’m such a fan [of] Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett,” Carly says of her tour mates. “And the fact that they thought I was the right girl power to be on their tour is such an honor.”
“Because all of those men represent a different part of country music,” she explains, “and I think you have a wide variety. There’s a very different audience and a different show when you look at Blake Shelton than there is to Luke Bryan.”
While Carly is quick to admit she stills get a little starstruck, she also takes her task very seriously.
“All of them have been so gracious to me and when I got the call for each tour I freaked out,” she confesses. “Because it was the fan girl in me, but also understanding that, wow, I have a responsibility to make sure that I open their show in a way that makes them happy to have me on tour.”
The former Dollywood performer started out the year on Blake’s Country Music Freaks trek before joining TR on his Life Changes shows. Right now, Carly’s busy on Rascal Flatts’ Back to Us Tour, with her stint on the stadium dates on Luke’s What Makes You Country Tour starting in September.
