Carly Pearse’s Dream Came True At The 2018 CMT Music Awards

Tears flowed on stage at the CMT Music Awards Wednesday night when Carly Pearce, Kane Brown, Dan + Shay, Ludacris and Backstreet Boys accepted their first CMT Music.

Carly Pearce, who used to be a performer at Dollywood, said it was a dream come true.

She posted a picture from the CMTs night to thank her fans:

“I sat as a fan so many years ago in the nosebleeds… praying, hoping, wishing.. that one day I’d know what it felt like to hear my name called… and tonight, because of YOU, I did. I will never ever be able to tell you what this meant to me and the HONOR it is to finally be a part of the country music family. To the fans, THANK YOU FOR EVERY. LITTLE. THING. ❤”
