Carly Pearce took The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon‘s performance stage on October 4 to perform her latest song, “Country Music Made Me Do It.”

Carly donned a black top and leopard print skirt as she jubilantly performed the track alongside her band.

“Country music made me do it/ Got me drunk and got me through it/ A little heartbreak eighty proof/ Over three chords and the truth/ Out of a small town into a ballgown/ Picking me up every time that I fall down/ Everything that I’ve done wrong or I’ve done right/ Oh, country music made me do it/ And I’ll do it ’til I die,” she sings in the confessional chorus.

“‘Country Music Made Me Do It’ is the essence of this next chapter for me,” says Carly, who co-authored the tune with Josh Osborne and Shane McAnally. “I wrote this song as an autobiographical anthem, but I can’t wait to hear the ways YOUR story has been influenced by country music.”

“Country Music Made Me Do It” serves as a preview of Carly’s upcoming album and follows the Chris Stapleton-featured single, “We Don’t Fight Anymore.”

Carly’s Country Music Made Me Do It Tour kicks off Thursday, October 5, in New York. For tickets and the full tour schedule, visit
