Carly Pearce can’t contain her excitement over her ACM Awards nominations.
On Friday morning (Feb. 26), it was revealed that Pearce earned three nominations for the upcoming 56th Academy of Country Music Awards, including her first for Single of the Year and Music Event of the Year for her collaboration with Lee Brice on “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and her first for Female Artist of the Year.
The songstress took to Instagram to share her reaction to the news with fans. In a video captured by her mother, an emotional Pearce is seen on the phone with her record label President/CEO Scott Borchetta where she screams, “I can’t believe it!”
She goes on to admit that she’s “freaking out” and tells him, “I seriously can’t breathe!”
“I truly have no words. Thank you, thank you, thank you, gonna go cry all day,” she captioned the Instagram post.

The news comes just one week after Pearce made headlines with the release of her captivating new project, 29. The seven-song release is, “from start to finish, more soul-baring and unflinchingly honest than anything she’s ever released before,” and sums up a year of struggles for the rising star.
The 2021 ACM Awards will return to Music City, broadcasting live from three iconic venues including the Grand Ole Opry House, Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe.
The star-studded event will air on Wednesday, April 18 (live 8:00-11:00 PM ET/delayed PT) on CBS Television Network and will be streamed live and on-demand on Paramount+ and CBS All Access.
