Carly Pearce Takes Flight With Release Of New Album 'Hummingbird'


Carly Pearce


GRAMMY, CMA and ACM Award-winning singer-songwriter Carly Pearce releases her eagerly awaited fourth studio album hummingbird via Big Machine Records. Blending traditional Country sounds with deeply personal storytelling filled with honesty and wit, hummingbird showcases Pearce’s transformative journey through loss and growth, and marks Pearce’s debut as a co-producer alongside frequent collaborators Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.


hummingbird is a deeply personal journey filled with heart, soul, and a good dose of humor,” says Pearce. “The process of creating this album was me reconstructing the way I see love and the way I see myself. From facing heartbreak, falling in love again, and gaining confidence, I’ve learned to embrace every part of my story. I hope this record resonates with anyone on a healing journey, showing that through vulnerability, self-discovery, and therapy, things can truly get better. It’s okay not to have everything figured out; happiness can be found in the process. I hope hummingbird resonates with everyone who listens and inspires you to find strength in your own journey.”


Following her critically acclaimed third studio album 29: Written in Stone which dealt with personal turmoil, hummingbird marks Pearce’s emergence from the storm – stronger than ever. The new album highlights her rebuilding process and newfound joy, drawing inspiration from the hummingbird’s symbolism of healing, hope, and resilience. Praise for the album has already begun pouring in from fans and critics alike:


Featured on the album is the GRAMMY®-nominated, GOLD-certified, lead single “we don’t fight anymore” featuring Chris Stapleton, which is Top 10-bound on the Country radio charts and has already amassed more than 190 million streams. The stirring single also recently took home Collaborative Video of the Year at 2024 CMT Music Awards.


Following today’s album release, Pearce is gearing up for a jam packed Sunday, June 9 in Nashville during CMA Fest, where she will perform on the Nissan Stadium main stage at approx. 9:50P CT. Ahead of the performance – and in the true spirit of CMA Fest – Pearce is giving her fans the ultimate access with the opportunity to shop her closet at the 3rd annual Carly’s Closet: hummingbird edition which will take place from 2:00-4:00P CT at the Music City Center. This year, the pop-up shop will feature handpicked items of clothing, shoes, and accessories from her personal collection for purchase benefiting the CMA Foundation, plus double as a special album celebration featuring an acoustic performance and album signing from Pearce. Earlier that day, she will also stop by the CMA Fest Close-Up Stage for a live taping of the Country Heat Weekly Podcast on Amazon Music for a full day of CMA Fest activities.


Pearce is currently connecting with fans across North America as direct support on Tim McGraw’s Standing Room Only arena tour through June 29, and international fans can see her on her upcoming headlining hummingbird 2025 UK/EU tour, kicking off February 9 in Stockholm, Sweden. The 14-city tour includes stops in Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Amsterdam, London, Manchester and more before concluding on February 28 in Dublin.


Fiercely rooted in the classics, the girl who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood has grown into a woman who embraces the genre’s forward progression. GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Carly Pearce lit a fire with her debut album EVERY LITTLE THING and the PLATINUM-certified history-making title track, and she hasn’t slowed down since.


Pearce’s 3X PLATINUM-certified “I Hope You’re Happy Now” with Lee Brice won both the 2020 CMA Awards Musical Event and 2021 ACM Awards Music Event, plus ACM Single of the Year. Pearce, now a Grand Ole Opry and Kentucky Music Hall of Fame member, has come a long way from the pain she felt writing her critically acclaimed and commercially lauded third studio album 29 which includes Country Radio chart toppers “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with Ashley McBryde and PLATINUM-certified “What He Didn’t Do.” For the PLATINUM-certified “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” Pearce picked up her second consecutive ACM Music Event of the Year in 2022 and marked the third duet between two solo women to top Billboard’s Country Airplay chart.


The song also took home the 2022 CMA Musical Event of the Year and won a GRAMMY® Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, marking Pearce’s first and making history as the first female pairing to win in the category. In 2023, Pearce joined Blake Shelton’s BACK TO THE HONKY TONK TOUR and made her 100th performance at the Grand Ole Opry.


As she closed out that pivotal 29 chapter with her first live album 29: WRITTEN IN STONE (LIVE FROM MUSIC CITY), Pearce stepped into the next chapter of her musical career with the praised release of her latest single “we don’t fight anymore” (featuring Chris Stapleton), which earned her second GRAMMY® Awards nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Last Fall, Pearce wrapped her headline COUNTRY MUSIC MADE ME DO IT TOUR, connecting with her fans all across the country. Pearce is currently joining Tim McGraw’s 2024 STANDING ROOM ONLY TOUR as direct support. She released her highly anticipated fourth album, hummingbird, on June 7, continuing to resonate with her honest lyrics and timeless musicality. Pearce will head out on her hummingbird 2025 uk/eu tour in February 2025.
