September 2nd 2021 Was Carly Pearce Day in Taylor Mill, Kentucky

Carly Pearce was honored by her hometown of Taylor Mill, Kentucky today.

Carly shares “I convinced my parents at 16 to drop out of high school & leave my hometown. Today, that same home town honored me with ‘Carly Pearce Day,’ a key to the city, the title of ‘Kentucky Colonel’ and 2 of these signs at both ends of the town. I truly have no words. This town made me who I am…. I will always love you, Taylor Mill.”

Congrats to Carly on the special honor.

This follows a year that has seen Carly included in the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame & Museum… 

and also become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

Her new album, 29: Written in Stone arrives in two weeks on Friday, September 17th – and her current single “Next Girl” is one of the 15 tracks that will be on the new project.

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.
