Pearce, who was raised in Taylor Mill, Kentucky, is thrilled over the honor. 

“Kentucky is where I learned to love country music and the incredibly talented musicians who wove their stories and texture throughout the genre. From straight-up sass of The Judds and Patty Loveless or truly understanding Loretta Lynn’s heartache, to the Bluegrass tinge of Ricky Skaggs and Bill Monroe, their influences have driven my music,” Carly shares. “I am so excited and grateful to be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame this Fall.”

Other members of the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame include Loretta Lynn, The Backstreet Boys, Florence Henderson, Rosemary Clooney, Keith Whitley and Boots Randolph.

Carly Pearce is a member of the Grand Ole Opry and is currently nominated for four ACM Awards, including Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year for 29: WRITTEN IN STONE. She’s slated to perform her Video and Music Event-nominated “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with Ashley McBryde during the March 7 event.
