Carly Pearce Says Blake Shelton ‘Practically Killed’ Her On Tour
Carly Pearce is wrapping her tour as the opener on Blake Shelton’s “Back To The Honky Tonk Tour” this week with the final show in Buffalo, New York, and she admits that hanging out with him the first week of the tour just about did her under.
Carly said in a recent interview, “This is my second tour with him, which is fun. He views me as a little sister. The first night of the tour, he invited me to hang out with him. They call it getting ‘Blake Shelton’d,’ and it put me out of commission til the next week.” She added, “So Blake, you practically killed me that first week.”
Pearce also talked about her Grammy experiences in Los Angeles in February in the interview. She said, “I think I tried to soak it in. I was in the room with a lot of people I didn’t expect to be in a room with. I got to see Adele, I got to see Beyonce.” She added, “I didn’t speak to any of these people because I didn’t think it was the time.”
Carly continued, “The night before, I got to sit at a table with Miranda, Luke Combs, Maren, and Ryan Hurd at the Clive Davis party. It was the country table, and I have these pinch-me moments, and the whole weekend was that for me.”
This past weekend, Blake’s wife, Gwen Stefani, surprised Carly by personally delivering a gift to her.
Gwen posted a video of the surprise on her Instagram. She posted a the video of herself coming in a private plane and packing a special box of her “Give” makeup for Pearce. She said, “Carly Pearce, you told me you’re a Give fan; I’m about ready to set you up.” When she gets to the venue, Stefani walks down the hall with a black Give box in hand; she says, “We’re doing it. Carly Pearce, where are you? Carly!”
She finds Carly sitting in a room, and Pearce squeals, “Oh my gosh.” Gwen says, “All the way from Los Angeles.” Carly says, “Yeah, oh my gosh, my favorite, (Pearce pulls out a lipstick) I told her I brought my own earlier to the show because I just wanted to show her this is all I use.”
