Carly Pearce Can’t Believe Who is Reaching Out To Her These Days

Who picks up random calls these days, right?

If you don’t know the number, let it roll to voicemail. Well, in the wake of her surprise invitation to become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry – extended by Dolly Parton, Carly Pearce is feeling lucky.

Carly’s phone has been ringing a lot lately with a ton of messages of congratulations…and she can’t believe who is reaching out to her.

Carly shares, “I got a random phone call and picked it up, and it was Barbara Mandrell, who I’ve never met her. And she had this long conversation with me about becoming a member, and how excited she was for me, and just giving me some of her insight.”

With everything that’s happened in her career, Carly is still blown away who she’s getting calls and texts from, “It’s just like, these absolute idols…Trisha Yearwood sent me a text, and I’m like, thanks Trisha! It’s just so crazy to have these women that I’ve really looked up to, that are country music royalty, wrapping their arms around me.”

Carly’s official induction into the Opry will be next month – Tuesday August 3rd.

We’re sure she’ll be performing her current single – check out the music vide for “Next Girl.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
