Carly Pearce has achieved a career milestone having performed on the famed Grand Ole Opry stage 50 times. The singer recently celebrated the major feat on June 13 with a three-song performance where she was gifted with a plaque to commemorate the achievement.
The “Hide the Wine” singer first stepped into the revered circle on May 30, 2015, and last night Opry member Jeannie Seely and 650 WSM host Bill Cody introduced the country singer to the audience.
“I’ve been trying to think about how I can sum up what the Grand Ole Opry means to me and I don’t know that I can,” Carly said from the famed stage. “But, I can just tell you that I love country music and country music fans more than anything and the Grand Ole Opry will always be the most precious place to me. So, thank you Grand Ole Opry for letting me play here 50 times!”
The Kentucky native’s three-song set included the poignant ballad “If My Name Was Whiskey, her previous No. 1 hit “Every Little Thing,” and her infectious new single “Hide The Wine.” The singer was showered with a cake, flowers and countless gifts for her major accomplishment.

Carly’s Opry appearance is just one of many career highlights the singer has witnessed this month alone. Last week, the singer received her first-ever award when being named CMT Breakthrough Video of the Year for “Every Little Thing” at the 2018 CMT Music Awards. She also made her Nissan Stadium debut at CMA Fest in Nashville where she performed her single “Hide the Wine” for a crowd of over 60,000 country fans. She will hit the road in the coming days with Opry members Rascal Flatts as part of their 2018 Back To Us Tour following time traveling with Thomas Rhett as part of his Life Changes Tour and Blake Shelton’s Country Music Freaks Tour.
