Thank you, CMA! Thank you to my fans for being the best and I’m looking forward to this upcoming year with you all!” Pearce will be performing the single at this evening’s award show alongside Lady A’s Charles Kelley, who is stepping in for Brice while he quarantines at home following a positive COVID diagnosis.  Check out to ABC online for all CMA Award winners and replay performances as we celebrate Country music’s biggest night.
