In a completely full-circle moment, Carly performed “Wasn’t That Drunk” with the Josh Abbott band on the Grand Ole Opry. Days later, she posted on TikTok to say that six years ago, Josh was paying her and her band to open for him on the road, because she couldn’t afford to go on tour. They hadn’t performed the song together in years until they took the Opry stage in June.
