Carly Pearce shared the sweetest response to a fan hoping to attend the award-winning artist’s sold-out headlining show at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.

Pearce is playing back-to-back sold-out performances at the legendary Nashville venue, kicking off the first on Wednesday night (October 26) and the other on Thursday night (October 27). Pearce announced her first-ever headlining show at the Ryman earlier this year. The venue sold out in under an hour, according to the Ryman, calling for a second performance date.

Pearce announced on social media on Tuesday night (October 25) that if fans still wanted to attend the performance, she would leave a lucky winner a pair of tickets if they share why want to attend. Pearce promised to select someone who is in Nashville or within driving distance to Music City on Wednesday morning.

One Twitter user shared a heartfelt story with Pearce, opening up about a similar experience the two have endured: “[Carly Pearce] choose me for tomorrow! I’ve lived 29 and what he didn’t do. You’re [sic] album saved my life. Married and divorced at 29. Husband told me I was overweight. Lost 71 lbs after divorce. Love you so much.”

“You beautiful girl,” Pearce responded to her, adding a word of encouragement. “I would love nothing more for you to join me tonight! Two tickets will be left at will call under your name. His loss… you will find someone SO much better. Trust me.”

Pearce released her smash-hit album, 29: Written In Stone, last year. The project includes several heartbreak songs and breakup anthems, including “Next Girl,” “What He Didn’t Do,” “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” (a duet with Ashley McBryde) and “Diamondback,” among other fan-favorites throughout the 15-track collection. Pearce wrote many of the emotional tracks following her divorce in 2020 after less than a year of marriage.

Pearce has previously signaled that it’s nearly time to turn the page to her next era of music. She recently debuted the “What He Didn’t Do” music video, indicating to CMT at the time that the dawn of a new era was on the way. She also hinted at the end of an era in a statement shared by her record label as she looks ahead to her back-to-back sold-out Ryman shows and her upcoming induction into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame: “…(it’s) going to be so special, and it’s actually kind of the way that we’re gonna end the year. And I think it’s a really great way to kind of put 29 down, let her live, obviously on in my career forever, but also turn the page a bit in a really exciting way.“
