Her duet “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” with Ashley McBryde landed her an ACM for Music Event on the Year in 2022 as well as a CMA for Musical Event on the Year in 2022, and a GRAMMY® Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, marking Pearce’s first and making history as the first female pairing to win in the category.
