"Up with the sunrise FREAKING OUT in LA finding out that I'm nominated for "New Female Artist of the Year"!!!!!!" Pearce wrote, alongside a photo of her in the early morning hours in the city. "This year has blown my mind in every way and it's because of YALL that this is happening. I've watched this awards show my whole life and dreamt of moments just like this. Pretty sure everyone in LA just heard me scream [crying emoji] YAYAYAYAY!!!! #acmawards"
Pearce was previously nominated for New Female Vocalist of the Year in 2017, and New Artist of the Year the following year. The industry recognition certainly well deserved: Pearce went on four major tours last year, and followed up the success of "Every Little Thing" with "Hide the Wine," both from her freshman album.
"I'm so excited," Pearce told PopCulture.com of hitting the road with Aldean. "I am a huge Aldean fan, I'm a huge Kane Brown fan. And obviously, I had a huge year of touring with so many of our male superstars last year. I made a joke that Aldean's like the last one of the superstars that I need to tour with, and so I'm just really, really excited. I think he's awesome, and I'm excited to just be able to be a part of that show."
In addition to being on the road, the 28-year-old is planning her upcoming wedding to Michael Ray – which she is unexpectedly enjoying.
"I'm really excited," Pearce said previously of the upcoming nuptials. "I've never been a girl that, quite frankly, cared about that stuff, but it's really, really fun, and we're having a good time."0comments
The ceremony will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 7 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
