Not only are Michael Ray and Carly Pearce headed down the aisle in the coming months, they’re also headed to Las Vegas to possibly pick up matching trophies at this year’s ACM Awards. Michael’s up for New Male Artist of the Year, while Carly competes for the New Female honor.
“PRETTY SURE ALL OF LA JUST HEARD ME SCREAM!!!!!” Carly tweeted after finding out about her nomination, along with a photo of her overlooking downtown Los Angeles.
“This year has blown my mind in every way,” she added on Instagram, “and it’s because of YALL that this is happening. I’ve watched this awards show my whole life and dreamt of moments just like this.”
Michael grew up watching the ACM show as well.
“I took notes in a notebook and kept track of the nominations and winners…” he revealed on his socials.
“From growing up playing in my family’s band in south Florida to being nominated for my first ACM, I know my grandparents are looking down on me right now…” he added, before giving a shout-out to his beloved.
“Congrats to my smoking hot fiancée and queen CP on new female vocalist!!!,” he wrote. “Thank you Lord for this blessing and showing me it’s all about your time. This is already the best year ever.”
While the pair hasn’t revealed exactly when they plan to make things official, we do know Carly’s already picked out her wedding dress and that she and her mother are busy planning the wedding.
The 54th ACMs will be handed out Sunday April 7 starting at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
