Need a refresher on what #WomenWantToHearWomen is all about?

Over the past year or so, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Carly Pearce. She is genuinely one of the kindest, smartest and most talented women in the game. She’s not afraid to let her voice be heard—and, oh what a voice it is. During last week’s WWTHW interview with Dolly Parton, Carly’s name came up in our conversation, and this week I am so THRILLED that she was able to come in for a feature! We heard your tweets loud and clear, and Carly was an artist you wanted to hear from. Enjoy the podcast below, as well as Carly’s curated WWTHW playlist and her video performances of “Hide the Wine” and “9 to 5.”
Elaina Smith talks with Carly Pearce about:

the odds of succeeding in the male-dominated country music industry
getting early support from busbee (producer) and BMG Publishing
what “women don’t want to hear women” means to her
experiencing disrespectful situations and how to stand your ground: “Trust your gut.”
getting support from other females in the industry, including Kelsea Ballerini and Jillian Jacqueline
losing her initial record deal with Sony and sharing her vulnerability with other female artists
the sisterhood within her label, Big Machine, including Reba McEntire and Taylor Swift: “Reba has been a huge champion of mine.”
the different avenues that lead to success
strong females in Carly’s life that have helped shape her
random questions, including what TV shows she is binge-watching
creating this week’s Women Want to Hear Women Playlist
