Carly Pearce Receives Platinum Surprise At 100th Opry Performance
Carly Pearce marked her 100th performance at the Grand Ole Opry last night (April 11) since her debut on the hallowed stage in 2015.
The special celebratory set featured several surprise guests. Ashley McBryde joined Pearce to perform their Grammy-winning hit “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” while fellow Kentucky native Ricky Skaggs, who inducted Pearce into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame last year, performed a rendition of Bill Monroe’s “Blue Moon of Kentucky.”
The Isaacs’ Ben and Sonja Isaacs lent their voices on Pearce’s performance of “Easy Going,” and Lady A’s Charles Kelley joined Pearce for her second No. 1 and now three-time Platinum hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now.” The two first performed the song together at the 54th Annual CMA Awards in November 2020.
Pearce performed her most recent No. 1 “What He Didn’t Do,” and was also honored with multiple plaques backstage before her set by executives from Big Machine Label Group, Opry Entertainment and RIAA, commemorating the song’s RIAA Platinum certification as well as a second plaque celebrating Pearce’s career-to-date accomplishments including her four ACM Awards, three CMA Awards, 2022 CMT honor for Artist of the Year, four No. 1 singles, multiple RIAA certifications, over two billion global streams and more.
In tandem with her Opry milestone, Pearce launched a personally-curated exclusive merchandise line with Opry Entertainment, available for purchase on Opry Entertainment websites and in Opry Entertainment retail stores in Nashville.
Pearce’s Opry performance is set to air on Opry Live on Circle Network on Saturday, April 22.
