Like a gripping novel that you can't put down, Pearce takes listeners on a captivating journey through the album's 14 tracks. Each song unfolds like a chapter, weaving together themes of love, loss, and resilience.

Previously released tracks “Country Music Made Me Do It” and the intoxicating duet with Chris Stapleton, “We Don’t Fight Anymore,” find a welcoming home on the album. These songs, along with the deeply emotional “My Place,” written by Pearce, Lauren Hungate, and Jordan Reynolds, add depth and introspection to the album. “My Place” is one of Pearce’s personal favorites, detailing the heart-wrenching realization that an ex has moved on. This track poignantly captures the struggle of coming to terms with a broken relationship, marking the beginning of the healing process. Rather than feigning indifference, Pearce confronts her insecurities and strives to powerfully move forward, one step at a time.

A daughter of classic country, Pearce’s love for storytelling shines in “Woman to Woman,” co-written with Tofer Brown and Lauren Hungate. This clever track issues a warning about a bad-news guy, with lyrics describing him as “tip of the top in a Ponzi scheme.” Pearce's voice soars from note to note, infusing the album with a healthy dose of girl power and her signature sass. Her knack for crafting compelling stories never ceases to amaze and captivate her audience.

Amidst the rich tapestry of Hummingbird, it is track 11, "Fault Line," that truly stands out. Co-written by Pearce alongside Nicolle Galyon, Shane McAnally, and Jordan Reynolds, this song is a heartfelt homage to her bluegrass roots and her Kentucky heritage. Pearce masterfully acknowledges her capacity for chaos and messiness, evoking the spirit of the musical era defined by legends like Tammy Wynette and her beloved hero Loretta Lynn. "Fault Line" is her modern take on the classic, fiery 'I'm gonna rip your head off' country song, complete with the visceral imagery of breaking dishes and raising hell. This track's playful angst and raw energy make it one of Pearce's favorite moments on the record, showcasing her ability to blend traditional influences with contemporary flair.

Carly Pearce emerges as country music’s healing hand with Hummingbird. This project offers solace and hope, extending a hand to listeners regardless of where they are in their own journeys. By documenting her stories and showcasing her resolve to fight through adversity, Pearce has created a crucial guide to healing for anyone who needs it. Hummingbird is an awe-inspiring project that captivates fans from the first note to the last. It is an album brimming with potential number-one hits, further cementing Carly Pearce’s status as a beloved and influential figure in country music.
