Carly Pearce Sings a Song To Loretta Lynn On the Stage of The Grand Ole Opry

Carly Pearce Sings a Song To Loretta Lynn On the Stage of The Grand Ole Opry

This weekend Carly Pearce debut a song that she co-wrote to one of her musical idols — Loretta Lynn.

Carly shares the story about being introduced to Loretta’s music and also about the new song, “My grandma introduced to me to her music when I was a little girl, and made sure I understood that if I was going to sing country music being from Kentucky— I had to know the importance of Miss Loretta Lynn. I’ve always loved her, but it wasn’t until the last year that I really FELT what she’s sang about all these years— and just how much we really do have in common. I wrote this song recently with Shane McAnally & Brandy Clark as a letter to her, saying all the things I wish I could say to her & sang it for the first time last night on my favorite stage. Thank you Loretta, for making me feel like it’s okay to write my truth and be unashamed.. just like you.”

Listen to the song here…

Carly is also climbing the country music airplay charts with this fan-favorite from her collection of songs, 29 — this is “Next Girl.”

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.”
