Carly Pearce is probably the most trailblazing female country artists this year. From being one of only three female in the past twelve years to score a debut No. 1 to being named one of iHeartCountry’s “On The Verge” artists, it’s no surprise that she scored a New Female Vocalist of the Year nomination for the 53rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards this April.
Back in February, Pearce headlined the annual CRS New Faces Show at Country Radio Seminar 2018 and had some very familiar faces get her ready for her big performance.
In the comedic video below that plays off her latest single “Hide The Wine,” tour mates Blake Shelton and Rascal Flatts‘ Gary LeVox reversed roles and helped “open” Carly’s performance with a plethora of insiders endorsing her talents and calling out stats.
From LeVox’s “Hurry up and get done with the Blake thing so you can get on a real tour” to Shelton’s one-upping magnum bottle of red, the light-hearted jabs and history-making stats are anything but hidden in this full-bodied clip. Big Machine Records General Manager Jim Weatherson offers the first congratulatory bottle for Carly’s chart-topping lead single as Vice President of Promotion Kris Lamb touts she is one of only three females in the past twelve years to score a debut No. 1.
CMT Senior Vice President of Music Strategy Leslie Fram beams that Carly is beacon of light for every female artist, especially the Next Women of Country while SiriusXM Senior. Director of Programming J.R. Schumann reminds audiences of her success across their platforms: Highway Find, three consecutive No. 1 singles on The Highway and all-genre “Class of 2017.” iHeartCountry SVP Programming and Brand Manager Rod Phillips raved of the On the Verge artist before Carly hands her hull off to Big Machine Records Director of SE Promotion AJ Calvin.
