Finding out about their ACM nominations was extra special for Carly Pearce and Michael Ray as they made a pact to be together during the announcements and were able to celebrate the special moment together.

Pearce is up for ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year while her fiancée, Ray, is nominated for New Male Vocalist.

When Pearce got the news she said,  “Never in a million years did I think that I would be marrying a country music artist, but also, never in a million years did I think that we would both be nominated for New Female and New Male Vocalist of the Year.  This is what dreams are made of.  This is truly the most incredible feeling.  I can’t tell you how excited we both were.”

Pearce shares her feelings about the nomination below.

“Never in a million years did I think that I would be marrying a country music artist, but also, never in a million years did I think that we would both be nominated for New Female and New Male Vocalist of the Year.  This is what dreams are made of.  This is truly the most incredible feeling.  I can’t tell you how excited we both were.  We decided to make a pact that we were gonna fly to be together the night of the award announcements because we just put it out into the world and put it to God that we were both gonna be nominated, and we ended up being able to celebrate together and it was so special.  And this is something I know we’re gonna tell our kids one day.  And we’re gonna have a lot of fun in Vegas and hopefully we take home some trophies for our mantel.”
