It’s a new year for country music star Carly Pearce. You know what that means. It’s time for a new beginning and new experiences.

On that note, we can announce that Carly Pearce will be kicking off the new year in style. She will be making her first-ever appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The popular country singer took to her official Instagram account on Wednesday afternoon to share the exciting news with her fans and followers.

“Well this is a total BUCKET LIST moment! Y’all tune in this MONDAY, January 3rd!!! @fallontonight” Pearce wrote next to a diamond and diamond ring emojis.

Country Fans Excited for Carly Pearce Appearance on ‘The Tonight Show’

Meanwhile, it’s clear that fans of Carly Pearce are excited to see where she goes in 2022. This could without a doubt be the most successful year yet for the country star.

“Congrats Carly, 2022 is already looking so bright for you!” one fan said.

“YEEEESSS! So deserved!!!” commented another follower. “Super excited and happy for you, Carly!”

Other fans realized that because her post included the two diamond emojis, she may be hinting at a certain song that she will be performing on The Tonight Show. That would be one of the songs on her latest album, 29: Written in Stone. It looks like Pearce is set to make her television debut of her hit song “Diamondback.” As you can see by some of the replies on her Instagram post, fans of the country star can not be more excited.


“Oooh I’m feeling some serious ‘Diamondback’ hints here!” a second fan wrote. “That song is gonna be fire!”

“Diamondback” is the lead single on her latest album, which is a full-length version of her 29 EP project. If you remember, Pearce co-wrote the song with her longtime friend and fellow country music star Kelsea Ballerini.

‘Diamondback’ Hits Close to Home

We all love Carly Pearce and her song “Diamondback.” But for the singer herself, the song holds a special spot in her heart. It tells a story of a marriage gone wrong, and ultimately, heartbreak in the end.

That story is one that Carly Pearce has personally gone through. She and her ex-husband, country singer Michael Ray, divorced back in 2019 after only having been married for eight months. That whole ordeal was one of the main motivators for the song “Diamondback” and for the entire 29 project.

Now, Carly Pearce is looking to start off 2022 stronger than ever with a performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Make sure to tune in to see Pearce perform “Diamondback” on Monday, January 3rd at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
