Carly Pearce celebrated a momentous occasion Wednesday night (June 13): her 50th Grand Ole Opry appearance. Pearce first made her debut in the famed circle on May 30, 2015, and was just as proud the 50th time she stepped onto the hallowed stage to be introduced by Opry member Jeannie Seely and 650 WSM host Bill Cody.

Pearce told the crowd she held such a special place in her heart for the Opry and would still be  just as excited to sing there for the next fifty years. The Kentucky native kicked off her set with “If My Name Was Whiskey” before launching into her No. 1 “Every Little Thing” and capping the celebration off with her new single “Hide The Wine.”

“I love country music and country music fans more than anything and the Grand Ole Opry will always be the most precious thing to me,” said Carly.

Pearce is set to head to the Radio Disney Music Awards on June 22 where she is nominated for The Freshest! – Radio Disney Country Best New Artist.
