Carly Pearce has been on the road since the fall, performing shows all over the country on her headlining 29 Tour. Pearce has brought along opening acts Andrew Jannokos and Hannah Ellis on the tour, and this weekend she will wrap up the US run with shows in Kentucky, Michigan and Canada. Prior to ending the tour, Pearce reflected on what she loves about being an artist on the road.
“One of my favorite things about being an artist is being able to tour and perform my music live,” she shared exclusively with Sounds Like Nashville. “Seeing everyone sing along to every word and being able to hear stories from my fans about how they’ve connected to the music means more to me than I can describe. It is definitely something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life.”
After finishing The 29 Tour, Pearce will take one weekend off from the road before heading to Jacksonville, FL for Jax River Jams. She will then join Kenny Chesney as an opening act on every show of his 22-date Here and Now Tour. She will be joined by openers Dan + Shay and Old Dominion on select dates. The Here and Now Tour kicks off April 23 in Tampa, FL, and it will wrap up with a two-night stand at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA on August 26 and 27.
“It has been a bucket list dream to one day get to tour with @kennychesney and it’s finally happening,” Pearce wrote on social media upon the tour’s announcement. “See y’all on the road in 2022 on the #hereandnowtour!!!!!”
Pearce also recently announced a six-date European tour, which will take place September 12-19. The singer will visit Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and Ireland on the run.
In addition to her tour news, Pearce has seen many other successes over the past year. She released her third studio album, 29: Written In Stone, in September, and she was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in October. Pearce also won Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2021 CMA Awards, and she took home trophies for Female Artist and Music Event of the Year at the 2022 ACMs. Her latest album has so far produced two singles: “Next Girl” and “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” (featuring Ashley McBryde).
