  • by

Carly Pearce took to social media Thursday to share a health update, revealing that she has been diagnosed with the heart condition pericarditis. Pearce, 34, said she plans to tone down her performances as she recovers, and that while she plans to fulfill the upcoming dates on a current tour, she needs to follow doctor’s orders.

In a video to fans on Instagram captioned “health update. love y’all ”, Pearce shared: “You guys know that I’ve been dealing with some health issues and through that, I have developed something called pericarditis, which is a heart issue. I’ve been working with doctors and talking to my cardiologist, and I still want to be out on the road — it’s really important to me — but we have all decided that it’s in my best interest as I’m healing to alter my shows a little bit.” Pearce added: “So if my shows look a little bit different, just know it’s because I have to keep my heart rate under control right now. And the doesn’t mean I’m not going to be completely fine, it just means right now I’ve got to really take this seriously. So if you’re coming to the shows … It is all going to be great, it just might look a little different. So I’m asking for a little bit of grace.”

Pearce is currently on the road as special guest on Tim McGraw’s Standing Room Only tour which kicked off in March, with dates scheduled through June. The singer has a new album, “Hummingbird,” out June 7, which drops just two days before she is scheduled to appear on the main stage at the CMA Festival in Nashville.  Aside from some summer festival dates planned, Pearce’s next scheduled headlining tour is set for early 2025.
