2021 has been quite a year for Carly, who tells us that between joining the Opry and winning two ACM awards for her hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now” earlier this year, she is truly living her dreams.
In other Carly news, she is releasing an expanded edition of her latest EP, 29, called 29: Written in Stone, which is due out on September 17th. Rolling Stone reports the new release includes the seven original tracks from 29 along with eight new ones, including one called “Dear Miss Loretta” featuring Patty Loveless and another collaboration with Ashley McBryde. “Dear Miss Loretta” was released yesterday.
Carly said, “Once I started writing, I thought I’d gotten it all out of my system, but the songs just kept on coming, and I realized to truly understand how you come out the other side, not just a quick snapshot, this full project needed to happen. Now people can see how you thrive and shine even in the lowest moments.”
Carly is on the What A Song Can Do Tour with headliner Lady A. They perform tomorrow (Thursday, August 5th) night in Bonner Springs, KS
