Carly Pearce Announces ‘Country Music Made Me Do It’ Song and Tour

Carly Pearce has a new song out this week, and a new tour kicking off this fall. The Kentucky native will release “Country Music Made Me Do It,” from her fourth studio album, on Friday, August 11. The news of the song comes as Pearce also announces her headlining Country Music Made Me Do It Tour, with Adam Doleac and Hannah Ellis serving as Pearce’s opening acts on select dates.

Pearce announced the news on social media, also revealing that she was finally launching her official fan club as well.

“It’s been a crazy couple of years since I released 29 into the world, and I’m ready to begin this next chapter with you,” Pearce writes. “I’m SO excited to bring the ‘Country Music Made Me Do It’ Tour to life this fall, to celebrate the true beginning of a turned page in my life, both musically and personally. My friends at [Conundrum Wines] are coming along for the ride & I have soooo many fun surprises up my sleeve.”

Pearce also offered a few more hints about her upcoming record as well.

“I’ve been busy in the studio recording new music, and want to share a taste of that with you too,” Pearce says. “’Country Music Made Me Do It’ is the essence of this next chapter for me. I wrote this song as an autobiographical anthem, but I can’t wait to hear the ways YOUR story has been influenced by country music.

“Lastly, you’ve been asking for years and it’s finally happening. MY FIRST OFFICIAL FAN CLUB!” she adds. “Y’all have given me the life of my dreams over the last 6 years and I can’t wait to connect on a deeper level. HERE. WE. GO! See y’all on the road this fall.”

The Grand Ole Opry member is currently enjoying a Top 40 hit with Chris Stapleton, on their “We Don’t Fight Anymore” collaboration. Pearce wrote the song with  Shane McAnally and Pete Good.

“We were just trying to find something honest, as I feel like I always do,” Pearce tells iHeartCountry. “In this moment, this is not what any of us were going through, but I think Shane threw out the idea of ‘We Don’t Fight Anymore,’ and it was just off to the races at that point. I feel like all of us agreed that this is probably a point that people have been in, in a relationship. Maybe they’re still together. Maybe they’re not. Maybe they shouldn’t be together. Maybe this song will help them. But you always, at some point I guess, experience something like this, of just that feeling of indifference.”

“We Don’t Fight Anymore” is from Pearce’s upcomin new record, one she says will be an honest look into her own life over the last couple of years.

“I wrote 29 when I was 29,” Pearce tells Audacy‘s US99. “I’m 33 now, so a lot has changed. I’m in a really good place. I think for the first couple of years, it felt very transitional, just kind of figuring out my way of life again, after a really hard time. But it’s really good. I’ve been writing a bunch, and I know that people are really excited, because obviously I have a new single.

“That means more stuff I’m really excited to get to share,” she continues. “I feel like nobody really knows what’s going on, really, so it’s fun. You are going to get to know what the last few years have been like for me.”

Pearce will serve as the opening act on Tim McGraw‘s 2024 Standing Room Only Tour, kicking off on March 14 in Jacksonville, Florida. Pearce will serve as direct support for all dates on the tour, which will wrap up on June 27 in Phoenix, Arizona. See all of the Country Music Made Me Do It Tour dates below.  Both tickets to the Country Music Made Me Do It Tour and download of the song will be available on Friday, August 11.
