Carly Pearce’s fierce new single, “Next Girl” officially went for adds at country radio on Monday (Sept. 28) and it’s already off to an incredible run.

The ’90s-inspired jam was the most-added song at country radio this week, raking in an impressive 57 first-week adds.

The news had Pearce “freaking out” as she took to Instagram to share her excitement.

“Well, I’m in complete shock. #1 MOST ADDED WITH 57 FIRST WEEK STATIONS?! This song is more than a song to me. It’s a new beginning for me in every way, so this hits my heart extra today,” she wrote. “Country radio, thank you for believing in who I am as an artist & allowing me to continue to speak my truth. If you only knew what this means to me….”

She later shared a quick acoustic clip of the song to mark the occasion, admitting she was “still buzzin'” from the good news.

According to a press release, “Next Girl” has already been streamed over 4.5 million times.

The song is the follow-up to Pearce’s chart-topping single, “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” which was a duet with Lee Brice. “Next Girl” is the first taste of what’s to come on Pearce’s third studio album.
