Carly Pearce Shares More of Her Story with 29: Written In Stone – Available now

Carly Pearce‘s album 29: Written In Stone is available now!

Talking about her new album, Carly says, “This project means so much to me on so many different levels. Number one it’s the first time that I’ve written all of the songs and penned every single story myself. You know, losing busbee (producer) was such a career moment for me of trying to figure out what am I gonna do next. And I feel like what this first set of seven songs has done for me is really open the door to the kind of country music that I always wanted to make, the kind of country music that I grew up on in Kentucky and the kind of country music that I’ll make forever.”

That first set of 7 songs came out earlier this year, as a collection called 29 – which is now nominated for CMA Album Of The Year.

When she first started writing the songs for 29, Carly wasn’t sure what it would become – but after working through those first tracks, Carly knew she had more to share. “I don’t think I really knew even what I was writing when I started. I think that I knew I had to get some things off my chest, and never thought that people would connect with it as they did. But as they were connecting and as my career was kind of taking off, I felt so inspired to keep going, and I think they finish out this chapter of my life. I think they finish out what the year 29 was for me. It was a really defining year for not only myself personally, but also for my music. And I think that seeing the reaction of the first seven, I felt so inspired in the midst of that to keep going and to keep writing until I felt like it was finished, and now I feel like I can close that chapter.”

Carly says that as you listen to the 15-tracks on 29: Written In Stone, you can almost hear a musical roadmap of the direction her life has gone in, “As I look at these 15 songs that I wrote, I feel like you can very much hear the different stages of…kind of where I was at each moment, and ultimately seeing that I got out on the other side better.”

Carly knows that while this is her story, she couldn’t have completed this musical journey alone, “To the incredible songwriters, producers and musicians who helped bring this project to life… thank you for helping me find my way and make the album I moved to Nashville to make. It’s truly an honor and a dream come true to have had the chance to collaborate with y’all.”

29: Written in Stone from Carly Pearce is available now and it includes her duet with Ashley McBryde, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”

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.
