Carly Pearce racked up a major career milestone earlier this month — she marked her 50th performance at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. She was presented with a plaque to commemorate the occasion on June 13th. Carly told the crowd, “I’ve been trying to think about how I can sum up what the Grand Ole Opry means to me and I don’t know that I can, but I can just tell you that I love country music and country music fans more than anything and the Grand Ole Opry will always be the most precious place to me. So, thank you Grand Ole Opry for letting me play here 50 times!”
The Kentucky native made her official debut on the Grand Ole Opry on May 30, 2015. Carly tells us she hopes the Opry becomes a mainstay in her career. “I think because the Opry has been something that's been always so much a focal point of my life and my career that I hope as I continue to grow in the industry and I think already people identify me with the Opry, which is so special, and the Opry knows how much I love them and I do as much as I can. I'm usually there even now at least once a month, and I see what Carrie Underwood's done, I see what Brad Paisley's done, I see what Vince Gill's done with the Opry and I hope that I can be the next generation of one of the artists that the Opry just latches on with and it becomes a part of their brand and I can do as much as I can because I feel like at the end of the day that is the most precious stage for anybody in Country music.”
Carly is currently on the road with Rascal Flatts, in addition to playing fairs and festivals around the country.
