I never get tired of watching performers lose their minds when they get nominated for something. CARLY PEARCE remembers back in August when MICHAEL RAY informed her she was a CMA “New Artist of the Year” nominee.
They were at home, but she was making eggs and NOT watching because ASHLEY MCBRYDE had already been nominated. Carly was sure there wouldn’t be two females in the category. “I think there’s a video out there.
“I was completely shocked and burned our eggs. We ended up eating them though, but I just started running around the house. It was a really powerful moment for females, and to have that pure moment that I will forever have. [I] had no words.”
