Carly Pearce Shares a Christmas Memory That Includes Santa and Mrs. Claus

Carly Pearce Shares a Christmas Memory That Includes Santa and Mrs. Claus

Carly Pearce has some great memories from Christmases growing up in Kentucky.

Her grandparents played a big role in her life then, and even in her music today, “We always went to my Grandma and Grandpa Pearce’s house that I always talk about in my music, and we always would go.”

Growing up, she also might have lived near the Griswold family, “There were a few houses in my area in Kentucky that they decorated like nothing I’ve ever seen” Carly remembers one house that really went the extra mile to provide some holiday spirit, “There was even a Santa and Mrs. Claus that would sit outside and hand out hot chocolate and things to the kids, and we always did that.”

Carly capped off her 2020 in a big way with a CMA Award win with Lee Brice for Musical Event of the Year for their number-1 hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and she released a new song to country radio that you’ll be hearing a lot of in 2021.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
