Biography

A singer and songwriter with a gift for honest, emotional material, Carly Pearce was already a seasoned veteran when she began to enjoy a commercial breakthrough at the age of 26. Pearce was born in Taylor Mill, Kentucky on April 24, 1990. She showed a precocious talent for music, and was touring as part of a bluegrass band at the age of 11. By the time she was 16, she had quit school and moved to Tennessee, where she became a regular performer at Dolly Parton's country-oriented theme park Dollywood, doing six shows a day, five days a week. Pearce also appeared on a handful of bluegrass collections released by budget labels, including a set of acoustic Christmas numbers. At 19, she was ready to focus on performing her own material, and she relocated to Nashville, where she began earning a reputation as a songwriter. In 2012, Pearce landed artist development and publishing deals with Sony; the company was ultimately unsatisfied with Pearce, and cut her loose from her commitments. But in 2016, Pearce's luck began to turn. She recorded a duet with Josh Abbott, "Wasn't That Drunk," and the independent single became a success, rising to number 36 on the Country Airplay chart. As "Wasn't That Drunk" was making an impression at radio, Pearce was introduced to a producer named Busbee, and they began working out material together. One of their tunes, "Every Little Thing," found support at satellite radio in late 2016, and the track clicked with listeners. The powerful Nashville label Big Machine liked "Every Little Thing," and was impressed with Pearce's vocal talents and backlog of songs. Pearce signed a record deal with Big Machine, and reissued "Every Little Thing" in early 2017. That October, she released her Busbee-produced debut album, also titled Every Little Thing. ~ Mark Deming
