For years, country music fans have watched Carly Pearce‘s career flourish before their eyes. She’s gone from an indie artist hoping to find a platform to have her songs heard to a chart-topping songstress with award nominations and accolades around every corner. 

Now, following the release of her impeccable project, 29: Written In Stone, Pearce is headlining her very own tour, The 29 Tour.

The trek kicked off over the weekend with shows in Des Moines, IA, Minneapolis, MN, and Chicago, IL and by the looks of it, every show was packed with fans who knew all the words to Pearce’s songs. 

On Sunday, she shared a video recap of her concert at Joe’s On Weed St. in Chicago one thing is clear: Pearce has cemented herself as one of country music’s leading ladies, joining the likes of Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert, and those who paved the way, like Trisha Yearwood and Faith Hill

“CHICAGO. Last night was a night I’ve been dreaming about my whole life. You sang EVERY WORD to EVERY SINGLE SONG. Thank you for a night I’ll never forget ♥️🥺✨,” the Grand Ole Opry member captioned the clip.

At one point during the Chicago show, Pearce couldn’t even be heard over the crowd chanting her name.
