Carly Pearce Shares Personal Note From 14-Year-Old Self…

If your 14-year-old self had a future note for you, what would it read? Would your dreams be the same? Would you have accomplished the goals you once had as a child?

Yesterday (Apr. 24), rising country star Carly Pearce celebrated her 28th Birthday with a personal note from her 14-year-old self. In a post on her Instagram, the note dated June 9, 2004 read:

“Dear Self,

Wow. I have a lot of memories in my life so far. Who knows what I will be doing when I open this letter. Hopefully I will be on my way to becoming a famous recording artist in Nashville.”


The note continues with…

“My main goal in life is to become a famous recording artist in country music. I want to sing on the Grand Ole Opry so bad! Music means the world to me and I know that one day, if I push myself, I will share my voice with the world.” 


Today, Pearce would make her 14-year-old self proud. The talented singer-songwriter made her Grand Ole Opry debut back in May 2015 and released her first studio album, Every Little Thing, a little over six months ago in October 2017. Days later, Pearce received her first number one single when the title track hit the top of the charts. While her second single, “Hide The Wine” continues to climb the charts, Pearce proves that talent, hard work, and passion can lead you in the right direction.

We named Carly Pearce as one of our “5 Artists You Should Be Listening To”  last September. You can listen to her music below and don’t miss her this summer on Rascal Flatts’ “Back To Us” Tour with Dan + Shay. The show hits the New York area on Friday, July 6th at Northwell Health Jones Beach Theater.

Happy 28th Birthday, Carly!
