Carly Pearce Sings “Next Girl” On Her Favorite Stage

Carly Pearce Sings “Next Girl” On Her Favorite Stage

This weekend Carly Pearce made an appearance on the Grand Ole Opry, “Never pass up a chance to perform on my favorite stage.”

This was Carly’s 79th appearance since her Opry debut in May of 2015, and from the stage she addressed the socially distanced crowd with, “Welcome to my favorite place in the entire world.”

Carly added, “All I ever wanted to do was sing country music.” 

She opened her set with her current single, “Next Girl.” Previously talking about the track, Carly has said, “I’ve spent much of quarantine thinking about where I wanted my music to go. This was not easy for me, especially without having busbee by my side this time around. The only thing I knew to do was to get lost in all of my old records. I needed to re-discover the music that captured my heart as a teenager: Dolly (Parton). Loretta (Lynn). Patty (Loveless). Trisha (Yearwood). The Chicks. Through all the listening, I was reminded how Country music always had these straight-talking women who were so strong and sassy. They were flirty, funny, and feisty. And they weren’t afraid of banjos, fiddles, mandolins, and dobro. I used that inspiration, both lyrically and musically, to create ‘Next Girl.’ This is the music that flows through my blood, that comes out of my pores. It’s everything I love — and loved — all in one song, and when it’s rushing by, it just feels good.”

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
