Congratulations to Kelsea Ballerini! She has been named to Time's Next 100 list!
Kelsea's friend Shania Twain wrote her introduction. "As a veteran songwriter, I’m always looking for authenticity, and I’m really inspired by clever songwriting -- songwriting that is not only thought-provoking and meaningful but most of all original. Kelsea writes with all those qualities. She isn’t afraid to be vulnerable and really brave with her songwriting."
She is the sole country artist on the list this year and the only musician to grace one of the three commemorative covers. Click here to read more!
Late night TV hosted two country artists last night! Jordan Davis made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live ahead of the release of his new album Bluebird Days that will be available tonight at midnight. Nate Smith was the musical guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and sang his #1 debut single "Whiskey On You", which of course he will be singing at our SOLD OUT charity concert at the Dusty Armadillo on March, 23rd! (THANK YOU!!)
Tonight, you can set your DVR for CMT Storytellers, Kelsea Ballerini will be the first female to headline! She says, “Songwriting is my therapy, my haven, my best friend, and my exhale. It’s the purest part of what I do, and I am grateful to join a lineup of storytellers I’ve learned from as I tell mine.”
Kelsea Ballerini has released her next single to radio from her latest album Subject To Change. "If You Go Down (I'm Going Down Too)" was co-written by Kelsea, Julian Bunetta, and Shane McAnally. You can't help but think of a Thelma & Louise type friendship when you hear the lyrics to this bluegrass inspired song!
Kelsea Ballerini released her new album Subject To Change today and made an appearance on Good Morning America to celebrate. She talked about her new music and twinning with Shania Twain before performing her latest single "Heartfirst".
It was just last week that Kelsea Ballerini posted to social media that she had a new song on the way today.
"HEARTFIRST" was co-written by Kelsea, Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town, and Alyssa Vanderheym, and describes how it feels when you may have met "the one". There is always that risk of a broken heart, but when you meet that person who makes you follow your gut and lead with your heart, it's worth the risk. This will be the first single off her upcoming new album (we'll keep you updated on that), and Kelsea will be performing "HEARTFIRST" this coming Monday, April 11th, at the CMT Music Awards which she will also co-host!
Kelsea Ballerini was a guest the other day on The Kelly Clarkson Show and sang her song "love Me Like A Girl" from her album 'kelsea'...
