Carly Pearce Can’t Believe Who is Reaching Out To Her These Days

Who picks up random calls these days, right?

If you don’t know the number, let it roll to voicemail. Well, in the wake of her surprise invitation to become the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry – extended by Dolly Parton, Carly Pearce is feeling lucky.

Carly’s phone has been ringing a lot lately with a ton of messages of congratulations…and she can’t believe who is reaching out to her.

Carly shares, “I got a random phone call and picked it up, and it was Barbara Mandrell, who I’ve never met her. And she had this long conversation with me about becoming a member, and how excited she was for me, and just giving me some of her insight.”

With everything that’s happened in her career, Carly is still blown away who she’s getting calls and texts from, “It’s just like, these absolute idols…Trisha Yearwood sent me a text, and I’m like, thanks Trisha! It’s just so crazy to have these women that I’ve really looked up to, that are country music royalty, wrapping their arms around me.”

Carly’s official induction into the Opry will be next month – Tuesday August 3rd.

We’re sure she’ll be performing her current single – check out the music vide for “Next Girl.”
