About Kelsea Ballerini:
Kelsea Ballerini launched to stardom with two consecutive #1 smashes – PLATINUM-selling "Love Me Like You Mean It” and GOLD-certified follow-up “Dibs” – from her critically acclaimed debut album THE FIRST TIME. The Black River Entertainment recording artist is the first solo female artist in 15 years to hit #1 with her first two country singles and one of only 11 women to have ever hit the top of the charts with a debut. Abuzz with high-profile media looks, she has been named “The Country Sweetheart” in People Magazine’s elite “Ones to Watch” portfolio, touted by Billboard Magazine as “Country’s Next Queen,” praised by Rolling Stone as the “Nashville It Girl,” selected as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, and is currently co-hosting alongside Arsenio Hall on ABC’s summer replacement series “Greatest Hits.” The talented singer/songwriter’s credit is featured on all 12 songs on her debut, including current Top 10-and-climbing hit single “Peter Pan.” Awarded Billboard’s “Rising Star” honor at the prestigious 2015 Women In Music event, Ballerini continues to rack up the accolades earning her first-ever ACM Award win for New Female Vocalist of the Year, the fan-voted Radio Disney Music Award for The Freshest - Best New Artist (all genre) and the American Country Countdown Award (ACCA) for Breakthrough Female of the Year. Having shared the stage with Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, Ballerini performed at the Country CMC Rocks Festival in Australia and is currently on Rascal Flatts' nationwide RHYTHM & ROOTS Tour. For tour dates and more information, visit www.kelseaballerini.com.
