NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE - AUGUST 25: Carly Pearce performs during the 14th Annual Academy Of Country Music Honors at Ryman Auditorium on August 25, 2021 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Who says you can’t go home again? Carly Pearce did, after unceremoniously leaving Taylor Mill, Kentucky, quite a few years ago.

Today on Instagram, she posted, “I convinced my parents at 16 [to let me] to drop out of high school & leave my home town. Today, that same home town honored me with ‘Carly Pearce Day,’ a key to the city, being named a ‘Kentucky Colonel’ and 2 of these signs at both ends of the town. I truly have no words. This town made me who I amā€¦. I will always šŸ¤ you, Taylor Mill.”

It’s been an emotional few weeks for Pearce, who justĀ saw her sister, who serves in the National Guard, deployed to Kuwait; was also inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Pearce’s next album,Ā  29: Written In Stone will be out on Friday, September 17.
