Carly Pearce offered a way for her audiences to relive her powerful performances as she debuted a live album on Friday (March 24). Pearce’s live renditions of tracks from 29: Written in Stone were performed and recorded Nashville, Tennessee.
The 19-track collection that released on Friday morning includes fan-favorite songs from 29: Written in Stone, in addition to a free previously-released anthems throughout Pearce’s career. Some notable tracks included “Diamondback,” “What He Didn’t Do,” “Dear Miss Loretta,” “Next Girl,” “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” feat. Ashley McBryde, “Every Little Thing,” “Hide The Wine” and “I Hope You’re Happy Now” feat. Lee Brice, among others, all live from Music City.
“I always loved live records as a kid and knew that one day I would have one of my own,” Pearce shared in an Instagram caption on Friday. “The songs of 29: Written In Stone really taught me who I am as an artist and as a woman. Night after night, my band and I found something special playing these songs and I wanted those moments to live forever. So for those of you who joined us on the 29 Tour, take this album to relive those special moments. And for those of you who didn’t join us, here’s a piece of one of the greatest, most unexpected, seasons of my life. ❤️”
Pearce, who is set for her 100th performance at the Grand Ole Opry next month, has previously teased new music with behind-the-scenes photos in the recording studio and snippets of unreleased tracks. She previously said, as she premiered her “What He Didn’t Do” music video in October, that she was getting ready to end her 29 era.
