This hot country newcomer gives thanks for a monumental year Instagram/@carlypearce

One year ago, if you’d told Carly Pearce she’d be one of the hottest rising stars in country music, she probably wouldn’t have believed you.

But she is—and during her Thanksgiving break, she was able to slow down and process the monumental success she earned in the last year and realize how this time of year will always be a special part of her story.

“Last Thanksgiving, I surprised my parents by telling them I got a record deal,” she captioned a holiday Instagram post. “This Thanksgiving, I’ve had more dreams come true than I ever could’ve imagined. I am SO thankful, happy, grateful and excited for what’s to come. Sending love to you tonight as another holiday comes to an end.”

Isn’t that amazing? And how sweet is this photo of Carly with her parents?

You know they are so proud of their baby girl. In just one year, Carly signed a record deal with Big Machine Label Group, embarked on a radio tour, toured the country and scored her first No. 1 hit with her debut, “Every Little Thing” an autobiographical, emotional ballad.


And she’s just getting started.
