Carly Pearce was honored by her hometown of Taylor Mill, Kentucky to celebrate her achievements and pay tribute to the place where all her musical dreams started.
Mayor Daniel Bell and the city commission hosted a special ceremony at Pride Park on Sept. 2, giving Pearce a key to the city and unveiling a sign that reads: “Welcome to Taylor Mill, Hometown of Country Music Star, Carly Pearce.”
The CMA and double ACM Awards winner got her start at 16 working as a performer at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
“We are happy to be able to bring our residents and city officials together with Carly to celebrate the success she has achieved, especially becoming a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Carly has always taken pride in being a native of Taylor Mill and we are delighted to be able to honor Carly and let her know that she has made her hometown proud,” said Mayor Bell.
“Coming home is always so special, but to be embraced by my community in such a big way is overwhelming,” said Pearce. “This is where my love of country music began, and I’m so grateful and proud Taylor Mill, Kentucky is my hometown.”
The homecoming continued as Pearce took the stage in Newport at PromoWest Pavilion at OVATION as support on Lady A’s “What A Song Can Do Tour.”
On Sept. 17, Pearce will release 29: Written In Stone via Big Machine Records, offering a deeper look at pain, strength and courage across the project’s 15 tracks.
