While on the road, Pearce teased "my place," which immediately resonated with audiences and became a fan favorite, sparking anticipation for its release. 

One of Pearce’s personal favorites on the upcoming record, “my place” describes someone reckoning with the fact that their ex has moved on and is starting to build a new life without them. Instead of feigning indifference, Pearce acknowledges her insecurities and tries to keep putting one foot in front of the other. 

“I wrote this song about a dream I had long before the relationship I was in ended, but I knew that it would," Pearce said. “It’s hard to watch people move on and realize your heart can’t live there anymore, but that realization is the beginning of the healing process.” 

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 – as she fully leans into her authentic country sound encompassed by the symbolism of the hummingbird, representing the album’s themes of growth, humility, understanding, playfulness and optimism.

Discussing her inspirations for the “hummingbird” album, Pearce previously shared, “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.”

The full album track list includes Pearce’s Grammy-nominated, top 15-and-rising, Gold-certified single “we don’t fight anymore” featuring Chris Stapleton, as well as the recently released, stirring title track “hummingbird."

North American fans can catch Pearce on the road as direct support for all dates of Tim McGraw’s 2024 “Standing Room Only” arena tour, and on the Nissan Stadium Main Stage at CMA Fest on June 9 in Nashville.

More on 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.
