Carly Pearce is nominated for the ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year award, and to add to the celebration, her fiance, Michael Ray, is nominated for New Male Vocalist. Carly tells us the experience has bonded them even more: “Never in a million years did I think that we would both be nominated for New Female and New Male Vocalist of the Year. This is what dreams are made of. I can’t tell you how excited we both were. We decided to make a pact that we were gonna fly to be together the night of the award announcements because we just put it out into the world and put it to God that we were both gonna be nominated, and we ended up being able to celebrate together and it was so special. And this is something I know we’re gonna tell our kids one day. And we’re gonna have a lot of fun in Vegas and hopefully we take home some trophies for our mantel.”
The ACM Awards will be held on April 7th in Las Vegas and air live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
Carly has one more weekend of dates on The Way Back Tour with Russell Dickerson before she heads overseas for the C2C Music Festival in Europe, and then onto Australia for the CMC Rocks Festival, where she will continue promoting her latest single, “Closer to You.”
