Carly Pearce Signs With Big Machine Label Group
Country newcomer Carly Pearce has made a big career move: The up-and-coming artist is now signed to Big Machine Label Group.
BMLG revealed Pearce's signing in a press release on Monday (Jan. 23). Big Machine's imprints, which are distributed by Universal Music Group, include Big Machine Records, the Valory Music Co., BMLG Records, Nash Icon Records and Dot Records, and the label group's artists include Taylor Swift, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire and more. The press release does not indicate on which imprint Pearce's projects will be released.
“I’m so honored and truly blessed to be able to work with Scott Borchetta and the Big Machine Label Group staff,” Pearce says in a statement. “It's a dream come true to have found a team who not only sees my vision but believes in it too. I couldn’t be more excited and ready to hit the ground running!”
Pearce started performing at Dollywood when she was 16; recently, she's performed at the Grand Ole Opry and opened for Kelsea Ballerini, and she's making waves on the charts (her song "Every Little Thing" has climbed into the Top 20 on the iTunes country chart). If her name sounds familiar, it might be because Pearce sang with Josh Abbott Band -- another group she's opened for -- on their song "Wasn't That Drunk;" The Boot also named her one of 10 new country artists to watch in 2017.
"Carly has been very impressive in constructing her team and preparing for success, and she is a very important member of the new generation of female country artists," BMLG CEO Scott Borchetta says. "Her craft is her life’s charge, and we’re very proud to add her to the Big Machine family."
