Episode 4 - Carly Pearce
Born and bred in Kentucky, Carly Pearce was destined for a life in Country music. After her debut single “Every Little Thing” reached #1 and put her in the rare company of only three women in the last decade to have accomplished that feat, Pearce is now in the vanguard of top women in country music. We spoke with her on the eve of the 2019 ASCAP Country Awards in Nashville, where she celebrated the success of her single "Hide the Wine" onstage, alongside collaborators Ashley Gorley and Hillary Lindsey. Pearce talked to ASCAP’s Beth Brinker about her long journey to “overnight” singer-songwriter success, her career challenges and triumphs, how she stays mentally and physically fit and her highly anticipated new album coming out this Valentine's Day. Beth also offers “Sound Advice” on how and why you should join ASCAP as both a writer and a publisher.
