Press Release

Following the launch of her headline “Country Music Made Me Do It Tour” at The Town Hall in New York City, Grammy-, CMA- and ACM award-winning artist Carly Pearce releases brand-new song “Heels Over Head” via Big Machine Records.

Listen to the new track here and watch the lyric video here.

The tour continues tonight in Boston and will make stops in St. Louis, Los Angeles, Chicago and Detroit, among others, through Nov. 18. Adam Doleac and Hannah Ellis join as support on select dates. Pearce will share the stage with Tim McGraw when he visits Buffalo on May 4, 2024.

Ahead of the tour’s kick-off, Pearce stopped by NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to perform “Country Music Made Me Do It” – her love letter to country music – during the show’s first week back on the air. Watch her performance here.

The performance followed Pearce’s two nominations at the inaugural People’s Choice Country Awards, which took place Sept. 28 at the historic Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. In addition to her nominations, Pearce graced the stage multiple times throughout the night: as a presenter, speaking about her favorite Opry moment with fellow country music artists; and as a performer, when she took the stage for the debut performance of “Country Music Made Me Do It.” Watch her performance here.

Pearce embarked on her next musical chapter with Top-35-and-rising single “We Don’t Fight Anymore” (featuring Chris Stapleton). The single continues to garner widespread praise from fans and critics alike.

More About Carly Pearce

Fiercely rooted in the classics, the girl who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood has grown into a woman who embraces the genre’s forward progression.

Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Carly Pearce lit a fire with her debut album, “Every Little Thing,” and the Platinum-certified history-making title track, and she hasn’t slowed down since. Pearce’s three-times-Platinum-certified “I Hope You’re Happy Now" with Lee Brice won both the 2020 CMA Awards Musical Event and 2021 ACM Awards Music Event, plus ACM Awards Single of the Year.

Pearce, now a Grand Ole Opry and Kentucky Music Hall of Fame member, has come a long way from the pain she felt writing her critically acclaimed and commercially lauded third studio album, “29,” which includes country radio chart-toppers “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with Ashley McBryde and Platinum-certified “What He Didn’t Do.”

For the Platinum-certified “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” Pearce picked up her second consecutive ACM Music Event of the Year in 2022 and marked the third duet between two solo women to top Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. The song also took home the 2022 CMA Musical Event of the Year and won a Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, marking Pearce’s first, and making history as the first female pairing to win in the category.

Earlier this year, Pearce joined Blake Shelton’s “Back To The Honky Tonk Tour” and made her 100th performance at the Grand Ole Opry. As she closed out that pivotal “29” chapter with her first live album “29: Written In Stone (Live From Music City),” Pearce now steps into the next chapter of her musical career with the praised release of her single “We Don’t Fight Anymore” (featuring Chris Stapleton) in June, and August release of “Country Music Made Me Do It.”

Pearce is currently on her fall headline “Country Music Made Me Do It Tour.” In March 2024, she will join McGraw’s 2024 “Standing Room Only Tour” as direct support.

Honored as one of CMT’s 2022 Artists of The Year, the 2021 CMA Awards Female Vocalist of the Year and 2022 ACM Awards Female Artist of the Year, Pearce continues to resonate with her honest lyrics and timeless musicality. For tour dates and more, visit CarlyPearce.com.
