Carly Pearce’s Kentucky Music Hall of Fame & Museum Exhibit Unveiled

Carly Pearce was back in her home state today (March, 4th) for the unveiling of her display in the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame & Museum.

Carly was on hand to accept the honor, saying “This is so special to me. I love Kentucky so much, I have state tattooed on my wrist because I love it so much!”

Speaking in front of a costume that her mom made for Carly when she was going to perform “Blue Moon of Kentucky” in her 4th grade school talent show — which she went on to win — Carly added, “You dream of one day impacting…all I ever wanted to do was sing country music and just to know that I am making my home state proud in a way that I always hoped to, and following in the footsteps of so many people in this Museum makes me very very happy, and just very honored to be here.”

Carly also treated the people at the event and those watching online to 3 of her songs which she sang acoustically, “Every Little Thing,” “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and “Next Girl.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
