Kentucky-born, Carly Pearce is a new name on the mainstream country scene, and one who has already topped the Billboard Country charts. From what is on offer here there is more than just a casual suggestion she will do it again and more besides.


While there are a number of fine singer-songwriters frequenting the Nashville country scene I was surprised to read, they were presently making zero impact on what has (sadly) become a male dominated Country chart. When she had a top ten hit with “Every Little Thing” she was the only solo female act. Just goes to show how much notice I take of them! Pearce has had to be patient regards gaining her debut album release; it follows five years touring with a local band (from the age of 11 till she was 16), working at Dollywood while being home-schooled and nine years living and playing in Nashville. It was there she honed her trade playing songwriter rounds, and with her bluegrass country roots warmed in modern day Nashville, and singer-songwriter traits you have one Carly Pearce. 


Pearce has been generous with her release. In that the album has 13-tracks and with a bunch of co-writers that includes Emily Shackelton, busbee, Shane McNally and Emily Weisband; plus one or two imported songs she has a solid, and at times better than album in “Every little Thing”. Pearce has a fine voice, and when it comes to delivering a song spiced with humour and attitude she raises her game. For here is an artist who if given the right material she will deliver the goods. Among those of note you have the superb, ideal single fodder in “Hide The Wine”, lively piece “Everybody Gonna Talk” and with beautiful poise, story-ballad “If My Name Was Whiskey”. And of course her hit “Every Little Thing”.


After some quite average numbers “Doin’ It Right” that mixes a little humour (and banjo) she offers something better, and though “You Know Where To Find Me” evokes greater imagery and her more space to breathe, vocally Pearce needs rather better, and a more sympathetic production for her to realise her full potential.
