Press Release

Today, Grammy, CMA and ACM Award-winning singer-songwriter Carly Pearce announced the early release date of her highly anticipated fourth studio album, “hummingbird,” now arriving June 7 via Big Machine Records (now available to preorder here).

Pearce announced the news yesterday evening on Instagram Live with fans in celebration of her birthday: “For my birthday this year, I wanted to give you guys a gift instead. My album hummingbird is now coming out Friday, June 7. CMA Fest, I hope you’re ready because we’re going to be celebrating!”

At CMA Fest this year, Pearce will once again be playing the headlining stage at Nissan Stadium on Sunday, June 9, in Nashville.

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. The album track 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 fan favorite “my place” and the stirring title track “hummingbird."

In addition to CMA Fest, 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 now through June 29. International fans can see Pearce on her 2025 headlining “hummingbird 2025” U.K./E.U. tour, kicking off Feb. 9 in Stockholm, Sweden. The 14-city tour includes stops in Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam, London and Manchester before concluding Feb. 28 in Dublin. For all dates and details, visit CarlyPearce.com.

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.
