Earlier this year, the songstress debuted her self-titled third full-length album kelsea. Her most personal effort yet, the album was met with critical praise including by NPR who said, “Kelsea Ballerini is definitely one of the most influential women in country right now… she’s defining the sound of the genre.” The collection presents a set of arena ready pop-country songs tailor made for live shows and was released the week the world shut down in March.
While under quarantine, Kelsea created the second half of that story, ballerini, which was released on the 11th of September. On this project, she carefully deconstructs each song and re-recorded everything with minimal accompaniment and co-produced this new album with friend and collaborator Jimmy Robbins. Kelsea shows yet another side of herself with this reimagined take on the entire album. The delicate sonics highlight the lyrical power of the record as she has stripped all of the songs down to the bare essentials.
Kelsea’s current single “hole in the bottle” is at # 17 on the Country Radio Chart. She was recently nominated for “Female Artist of the Year” at the 2020 ACM Awards, and is currently up for “The Country Artist of 2020” at the E! People’s Choice Awards. Kelsea also leads the 2020 CMT Award nominations with nods for “Video of the Year,” “Female Video of the Year,” and “CMT Performance of the Year.”
