Carly Pearce recently took to Instagram to show off her brand new ink.

The four-time CMA Awards nominee revealed photos of her meaningful new tattoo – a small bouquet of wildflowers – and shared the story behind it.

“Sooo I did a thing this week— ‘Wildflowers are the first things to pop up after a long winter season.’ Here’s to seeing the wildflowers starting to sprout again,” the songstress shared, possibly referring to her recent divorce.

The small tattoo can be seen on Pearce’s right forearm above another tattoo of her home state of Kentucky.

2020 has been quite a year for Pearce’s career. She secured her second No.1 single with “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” her duet with Lee Brice, raked in several CMA Awards nominations and her new single, ‘Next Girl,” is poised to be her biggest hit yet. It’s safe to say her wildflowers are in fact starting to sprout again.

In fact, during a recent interview with ET Canada, Pearce admitted that she’s learned a lot about herself after this tumultuous year.

“I’m way stronger than I thought,” she shared.

She also opened up about her divorce, saying, “Things happen, and I think it’s just something that has to stay between the two of us.”

Next Girl” is at country radio now.
