Press Release

Today, Grammy, CMA and ACM award-winning singer/songwriter Carly Pearce announced the release of her highly anticipated fourth studio album, “hummingbird,” out June 14 via Big Machine Records. Preorder the album here.

In tandem, Pearce has also released the album’s stirring title track, “hummingbird,” available now on all platforms – listen here. “hummingbird” is accompanied by a stunning music video, which emphasizes the track's traditional country sound and sets the tone for Carly’s creative vision ahead of the upcoming album.

Watch the video for “hummingbird” here or below.



Produced by Pearce, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, “hummingbird” marks Pearce’s debut as a co-producer and fully represents her new musical chapter – one of forward motion.

Discussing her inspirations for the “hummingbird” album, Pearce said, “I have lived a lot of life in the last few years. Entering a new decade has brought a lot of maturity, growth, heartache and healing. I am still a work in progress, but these songs represent my honesty, playfulness, and openness to keep growing.”

Following the success of her last studio album, “29: Written In Stone,” Pearce fully leans into her authentic country sound encompassed by the symbolism of the hummingbird, which represents the album’s themes of growth, humility, understanding, playfulness and optimism.

Of the album’s title track, “hummingbird,” Pearce said, “When I wrote this song, I knew I wanted this to be the title of the album. This song plays on my bluegrass roots but also lyrically tells the story of the journey I am on of finding love. This is the most unapologetically ‘Carly’ song I’ve ever written.”

The “hummingbird” track list includes Pearce’s Grammy-nominated, Top 20-and-rising single “we don’t fight anymore” featuring Chris Stapleton. The critically acclaimed song is officially RIAA Gold-Certified today.

Keeping her foot on the gas, Pearce hits the road this week with upcoming performances at “Country 2 Country Festival” in the U.K. Starting March 14, Pearce will join Tim McGraw as direct support on all dates of his 2024 arena “Standing Room Only” Tour.

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 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.

In 2023, 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 latest Top-20-and-rising single “we don’t fight anymore” (featuring Chris Stapleton), which earned her second Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance.

Pearce went on to release “country music made me do it,” to critical acclaim, performing the song at the first People’s Choice Country Awards and on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Last fall, Pearce wrapped her headline “Country Music Made Me Do It” Tour, connecting with her fans all across the country.
