Former Country Tonite Cast Member Carly Pearce Returns for a Visit

Carly Pearce Visits Country Tonite

country tonite theaterDuring her bachelorette weekend, Pearce decided to come back to the place that helped kick-start her career: Country Tonite Theatre. We always loved when Pearce was on stage, and this time we were honored to have her in the audience for one of our performances! The country music singer started performing at Dollywood when she was 16, then after about a year joined us at Country Tonite. Pearce has always had such wonderful things to say about her time as one of our cast members. In her exclusive with People Magazine, she described being back at Country Tonite as a “full-circle moment.”

Pearce also said one of her highlights was seeing “Every Little Thing” was performed during our show!

Carly Pearce’s Bachelorette Weekend

Pearce is now married to country star Michael Ray. Before the wedding, Pearce and her friends celebrated in the Smoky Mountains! In addition to their night at our theater, the group of girls spent the day at Dollywood and stayed in a Gatlinburg cabin. Her first job in Pigeon Forge was actually in the Country Crossroads show at Dollywood! They took a trip down memory lane and went to see that show as well, and of course they enjoyed food and rides at the theme park too. The girls stayed in a beautiful Gatlinburg cabin that was fully decorated for a fun bachelorette party!

We want to wish Carly Pearce a big congratulations on her marriage and are so happy she was able to come back and visit for a night!
