You can check out Carly Pearce dueting with Deana Carter on her signature song, “Strawberry Wine,” on this weekend’s edition of CMT Hot 20.
The Matraca-Berg-penned ballad hit #1 in 1996, and it's one you’ll often hear Carly do in concert.
“I cover ‘Strawberry Wine” in a lot of my shows,” Carly explains, “but the experience of standing next to Deana… chills. She has one of those honest, encompassing voices that you really feel in your core. I’m honored we could perform together!”
The “Hide the Wine” and “Strawberry Wine” hitmakers teamed up at a recent 90’s Night at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works. As you might imagine, Deana’s pretty impressed with Carly, too.
“After 20 years of this career-making song continuing to impact listeners,” she says, “being able to sing it with someone like Carly was such a joy. I love watching new talents grow, and the emotive way she connects with this coming-of-age song was really special.”
You can watch for Deana and Carly on CMT Hot 20 Countdown starting at 9 a.m. ET on both Saturday and Sunday. In the meantime, you can check out a short preview on Carly’s Facebook page.
