She stormed on the scene with the song "Every Little Thing" in 2017. She followed it up with "Next Girl" a few years later. Now, she's enjoying the success of her latest album, 29: Written in Stone, and a tour that's taking her to Manchester, IA this summer for the Delaware County Fair.

She's Carly Pearce, and she is set to perform at the Delaware County Fair on Friday, July 14th, announced by the fair this week via press release.

Pearce is also famous for "I Hope You're Happy Now," her duet with Lee Brice, which won both the CMA "Musical Event" and ACM "Music Event" awards. The Delaware County Fair's press release also notes her many accomplishments:

She picked up her second consecutive ACM Awards Music Event of the Year with Ashley McBryde duet  “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” Carly’s third No. 1 and the third duet between two solo women to top Country Airplay, dating to the Billboard chart’s January 1990 inception. Additionally, this single went on to win a Grammy, making Carly Pearce and Ashley McBride the first female duet to win a Grammy. She is currently sitting in the top 5 songs with album’s final single “What He Didn’t Do.”


Special guest Aaron Watson will open for Pearce at the Delaware County Fair. Watson has been a mainstay in the red dirt country scene for several years now, with songs like "Freight Train" and "Outta Style" being some of his biggest hits.

The Fairgrounds will set the stage in the southeast corner of the track while also providing a "Party Pit" where fans can get right up to the stage to see Pearce perform. The 2023 edition of "Country Night" at the Delaware County Fair will be a standing room only area on the track, with tickets being $60 for the Party Pit and $50 on the track.

Per usual, seating in the Scooter's Grandstand is free with admission. Tickets can be purchased on the Delaware County Fair's website starting Saturday, March 11th at 9am.
