Pearce, Brown set to join Kentucky Music Hall of Fame

Monday, February 28, 2022 – Carly Pearce will lead a group to be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame.

Grand Ole Opry background vocalist Norah Lee Allen, Steel Guitar Hall of Famer Tommy White, "I'm From the Country" hit songwriter Marty Brown and posthumously, Bluegrass songwriter Pete Goble and master guitarist and producer Paul Yandell also will join the hall. The group will join the hall at a ceremony in Renfro Valley on Friday, Oct. 28.

"Kentucky is where I learned to love country music and the incredibly talented musicians who wove their stories and texture throughout the genre. From straight-up sass of The Judds and Patty Loveless or truly understanding Loretta Lynn's heartache, to the bluegrass tinge of Ricky Skaggs and Bill Monroe, their influences have driven my music," said Pearce. "I am so excited and grateful to be inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame this Fall."

Pearce is currently up for four ACM Awards including Female Artist and Album for "29: Written in Stone" and will perform her Video and Music Event-nominated "Never Wanted To Be That Girl" with Ashley McBryde.
