Big Machine Label Group celebrated several performers and one winner after this year’s 55th Annual CMA Awards.
Held live and in-person at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, BMLG’s Carly Pearce took home her first win for Female Vocalist of the Year. Pearce has had a banner year, releasing her acclaimed project 29, being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, and launching her first true headlining tour. She said backstage, “You have to know and understand how badly I wanted to win Female Vocalist of the Year as a little girl. I would watch the CMA Awards, see all the women who’d come before and dream one day I might be up there, too. But when it happens? When you’re in the moment? Nothing can prepare you for that, and it’s even more powerful, more exciting than anything I’ve ever felt in my life.”
Pearce also gave a flawless performance of her current single, “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” alongside duet partner Ashley McBryde.
Big Machine recording artist Thomas Rhett also offered viewers his “Country Again” from a stripped down set. Lady A and Florida Georgia Line were also in attendance to present.
