Carly Pearce found out about getting her Academy of Country Music Award nomination in the most unlikely way…while she was 35,000 feet in the air!
The “New Female Vocalist of the Year” nominee actually found out while she was onboard a Southwest flight this morning, and the crew had some fun announcing the news to everyone on the flight. As you can tell, Carly was over the moon about her first nomination, and everyone else on-board shared the excitement. Check out the cute video here!
The “Hide the Wine” singer shared a photo of herself alongside the rest of the plane as she revealed she couldn’t “put into words” just how much the moment meant to her…
