Carly Pearce plays Fishing for Answers at Billboard’s Country Live event.
Hi, I’m Carly Pearce and I’m going fishing for answers with Billboard.
What is your favorite album or country album of the year so far? I think Nate Smith’s record is really, really good front to back.
Who was your musical inspiration growing up? All the ladies of the 90s, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, Lee Ann Womack, and I’m a huge Alison Krauss fan, Loretta, Dolly.
What is the most country thing you’ve ever done? Got married and divorced in one year.
Recording or touring? I like both. I think the recording process is really fun because you get to be so musical but there’s really nothing like getting to see the songs that you write come to life on the road and you get to have summer camp with your band. It’s super fun.
Best concert you’ve ever attended? Either. Alison Krauss and Union Station or Keith Urban open for The Chicks.
What’s your secret talent? Can’t really show you in here but I have the most double jointed arms that you could ever see. Hopefully you can see it, judging by the other people in this room. You can see it
