Fiercely rooted in the classics, the girl who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood has grown into a woman who embraces the genre’s forward progression and is confident in what she wants to say. Lighting a fire with her debut album Every Little Thing, the platinum-certified history making title track and has since become “country’s ‘it’ girl” (ABC Radio), touring alongside Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts and Luke Bryan.
With the most CMA Awards nods for any new artist nominee in 2020, Pearce led with New Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year and won Musical Event of the Year for her platinum-certified, No. 1 duet with Lee Brice.
In a year of uncertainty, Pearce turned to the comfort of records she’s drawn inspiration from since her childhood dream started to take hold. Like those before who spoke their minds with a little sass and steel guitar – Dolly, The Chicks, Trisha, Reba, Patty Loveless – she’s leaning on her own intuitions with new single “Next Girl,” out now with a clever new video on Big Machine Records. Pearce co-wrote the looking-out-for-your-sister track with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, who stepped in as new collaborators and producers following the unexpected death of her mentor and former producer Busbee for whom she’s also penned a tribute.
