1. “I have been 5’8 since I was in the fifth grade.”
2. “I have two Shih Tzus named Johnny and June, and I have a chocolate lab named Retta Lynn – after Loretta Lynn. I have a cat named Emmy Lou, after Emmy Lou
Harris. Obviously, I sing country music. So, I guess I’ve got a full country band.”
3. “Speaking of my love for classic country – I moved away when I was sixteen from my hometown in Kentucky to sing at Dollywood. The most full-circle moment happened to me last year, when Miss Dolly Parton herself asked me to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry.”
4. “I have a small addiction to Orbit gum. I probably go through one of these every day…and yes, that’s a three-pack.”
5. “I got married and divorced at age 29, and I wrote an album about it. It was nominated for both ACM and CMA Album of the Year.”
6. “Most people would think that because I’m a singer and an entertainer, I can sing in front of a bunch of people that I would be extremely extraverted, but I’m actually super shy and really introverted.”
7. “I’m one of those weird people that is deathly afraid of vomit, so if you have vomited in the last, I don’t know, month – don’t come near me.”
8. “I live with twelve people on one bus. A lot of boys, a few girls. I have to say that probably out of all of us, I’m the raunchiest and the grossest.”
9. “I have OCD about things so badly. For example, when I leave my house, I check my plugs and outlets and candles like eighteen times. I probably didn’t even light a candle in the last, like, four weeks – It still could be on. I have to take pictures to remember that I turned things off, and I still think that I didn’t unplug it and that there’s still a candle burning.”
10. “I will do anything… and I mean anything, to make somebody laugh.”
11. “My favorite pastime is walking through the grocery store. Aye Publix, love you.”
12. I am the reigning ACM and CMA Female Vocalist of the Year. Which was, like my biggest dream as a kid come true.”
13. “I think farts are the funniest thing in the whole world.”
14. “And last, but not least – see all this hair? She’s fake.”
Pearce’s vulnerability and honesty instantly resonated with fans, as the clip raked in 627.6K views and 49.4K likes on TikTok alone. The country community ran to the comments to point out their favorite facts, her flawless skin, and to reveal secrets of their own.
“Here is a random fact, I deliver your parent’s mail! I have seen you a few times before, but I act like I have no idea who you are because I’m a scaredy-cat,” said a Kentucky-based follower. “Drop your skincare routine,” gushed another.
Following the endless praise, Pearce decided to create a “part 2” of “random facts.”

15. “I have the biggest head of anyone, including every man that works for me.”
