Carly Pearce took a moment out of her recent show in Evansville, Indiana, to honor her sister, Cristy. Pearce brought Cristy on stage to praise her, ahead of her deployment to Kuwait.
“Last night was such a special night for my family,” Pearce shared on social media. “I surprised my sister (she wanted to kill me) and brought her up on stage, asking the crowd for their prayers as she heads to Kuwait this weekend to serve as a Captain in the National Guard. What a beautiful moment it was for someone I admire and love so much. We also together gave a moment of silence for the devastating loss our country experienced this past week and cheered for all of the men and women who have served that were in the crowd. Cristy, thank you for your service. I love you and I’ll miss you, but am so damn proud of you.”

Pearce wants to be known as a country music singer and a songwriter, but she also wants to be known for her faith. The Grand Ole Opry member has been vocal about her spiritual beliefs, inspired in part by her tour mate, Lady A‘s Hillary Scott.
“My faith is such a part of my soul, the way that country music is a part of my soul,” Pearce tells Everything Nash. “I don’t really have an option to not speak about it, because it is a part of my DNA, and it’s a part of who I am. Hillary, I think she’s another one that speaks to her faith, and we can be lights for that in our community, and be faces of unwavering faith, and how faith has carried us. She went through a miscarriage and I went obviously through a lot of stuff, and my faith is what got me through that. I would be nothing if I didn’t have that.”
