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'...
Kelsea Ballerini was the musical guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday (September 14). She talked to James about releasing her new album ballerini and she performed "A Country Song"...
Kelsea Ballerini took to social media to announce an upcoming new album ballerini. The album follows her album, kelsea, that was released in March, and will contain all of the same songs, but rerecorded, stripped down versions. The new album will be available on September 11th.
Kelsea Ballerini was the musical guest last night (2/6) on Jimmy Kimmel Live! She sang two songs from her upcoming sophomore album, her current single "Homecoming Queen" and "LA". Her Self titled album is due out on March 20th!
Kelsea Ballerini had been sending out these coffee mugs to fans, and everyone was posting their pics with them and thinking the same thing... what does it mean?!?
Kelsea finally spilled what it meant on social media...
the new single is called homecoming queen? and is coming out 9/6. THERE I SAID IT. ???#homecomingqueen— Kelsea Ballerini (@KelseaBallerini) September 3, 2019
We played you "Homecoming Queen?" a new single from her upcoming third album tonight during Trending Tracks as our New Song Spotlight, if you missed it, check out the video below anytime after midnight!
This is not a drill. I know that Kelsea Ballerini said new music is coming, but now I feel like it is soon. Very, very soon. Why? Well, because of this tweet:
Just wrapped the video. Wow. This is a special one.— Kelsea Ballerini (@KelseaBallerini) July 16, 2019
I mean if this isn't the video for her first single from her third album, then I don't know what it is. Though she is not spilling any more details, other than this tweet that also makes me feel like things are wrapping up:
The face of a girl that has been listening to mixes this whole vacation and is very, very excited to finish this music when I get home. ?? pic.twitter.com/VWW6AjIu3I— Kelsea Ballerini (@KelseaBallerini) July 9, 2019
Of course we will be keeping you updated.
BTW, she is home, sooo... Kelsea! We are so ready for this!
First, we have to flashback to March 5th when Little Big Town invited Kelsea Ballerini to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry. After Kelsea's performance, Little Big Town took to the stage to close out the show and invited her back on stage to sing "Girl Crush" with them. The lyrics changed just slightly at the end, watch the moment again below:
Second flashback is this past Tuesday (April 16) when Kelsea officially became the newest and youngest member of the Opry, being inducted by Carrie Underwood. Not only did Carrie officially introduce and induct her, but they sang a duet together. Check out their cover of this Trisha Yearwood classic, "Walkaway Joe"!
Congratulations again to Kelsea Ballerini, it is quite an honor and accomplishment to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry!
