Carly Pearce is celebrating her Grand Ole Opry induction on Aug. 3 and the Sept. 17 arrival of new album 29: Written in Stone with news about a headlining tour.

Pearce's headlining tour begins on Nov. 4 in Des Moines, Iowa and lasts through a Dec. 3 stop in Bloomington, Ind. In between, she and opening act Andrew Jannakos will appear in six major markets: Minneapolis (Nov. 5); Chicago (Nov. 6); New York City (Nov. 18); Richmond, Va. (Nov. 19); Washington D.C. (Nov. 20) and Nashville (Dec. 2).

New release 29: Written in Stone builds upon her 2021 EP 29 with eight additional songs, including "Dear Miss Loretta," featuring country legend and fellow Kentuckian Patty Loveless.

"To hear Patty Loveless sing your words, there's no way to describe that sensation, "Pearce said in a statement. "Her voice is Appalachia, those mountains and hollers are country music. To think, a year ago, I was asking myself, 'What would Patty Loveless do?' thinking about all her songs, how smart and sassy she always was... and now she's on one of mine."

Pearce introduced "Dear Miss Loretta" on the Opry stage earlier this year. It was that performance that led Loveless, a cousin of Lynn and her sister Crystal Gayle, to reach out to Pearce about recording the tribute to the Coal Miner's Daughter.

"I ain't a coal miner's daughter, But I've sung it all my life/ I ain't been a widow, But I've been an ex-wife," Pearce sings. "And I hear your truth, And I feel your pain/ Now I know why you sang that way..."

Pearce says 29, which chronicled the heartbreaks and triumphs of the last year of her 20s, was only the beginning.

"Once I started writing, I thought I'd gotten it all out of my system," Pearce says. "But the songs just kept on coming, and I realized to truly understand how you come out the other side, not just a quick snapshot, this full project needed to happen. Now people can see how you thrive and shine even in the lowest moments."

In June, Pearce was surprised by Dolly Parton with an invitation to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
