She announced her Country Music Made Me Do It tour this morning, which is named for a new single she’s dropping this Friday, August 11th.
Carly says it’s all the beginning of a new chapter of life and music, after putting out her 29: Written In Stone record a couple years ago.
The tour will start in October in New York City, and run through November ending in Detroit, with openers in Adam Doleac and Hannah Ellis.
Carly says the new single is all about how country music has inspired her over the years, and is the “essence of this next chapter”:
“It’s been a crazy couple of years since I released 29 into the world, and I’m ready to begin this next chapter with you. I’m SO excited to bring the ‘Country Music Made Me Do It’ Tour to life this fall, to celebrate the true beginning of a turned page in my life, both musically and personally.
My friends at Conundrum Wines are coming along for the ride & I have soooo many fun surprises up my sleeve. I’ve been busy in the studio recording new music, and want to share a little of that with you too.
“Country Music Made Me Do It” is the essence of this next chapter for me. I wrote this song as an autobiographical anthem, but I can’t wait to hear the ways YOUR story has been influenced by country music.”
She shared that her official fan club is launching today, as well:
“Lastly, you’ve been asking for years and it’s finally happening. MY FIRST OFFICIAL FAN CLUB!
Y’all have given me the life of my dreams over the last 6 years and I can’t wait to connect on a deeper level. HERE. WE. GO! See y’all on the road this fall.”
Carly released her self-proclaimed “divorce album” 29: Written in Stone back in 2021, and most recently put out a new song with the great Chris Stapleton called “We Don’t Fight Anymore,”which seems likely to be included on her forthcoming (unofficially announced) new record.
Tickets for all dates of the tour go on sale this Friday at 10AM local time.
