Kelsea Ballerini is coming in hot this summer with three upcoming high-profile television performances as her cheeky single off of “Unapologetically”, “I Hate Love Songs,” continues to climb the charts.
Appearing on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday (August 1st), Ballerini will wrap the week by headlining ABC’s Good Morning America Summer Concert Series for the first time live from New York’s iconic Central Park on Friday (August 3rd). In addition, she’ll co-host ABC’s CMA Fest alongside Thomas Rhett for the second year in a row next Wednesday (August 8th). During the three-hour primetime special, she’ll also take the stage at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium, as filmed live this past June among a Country star-studded lineup.
The bona fide trailblazer is currently supporting Keith Urban as his special guest on the “Graffiti U World Tour” now through November 3rd at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. According to Forbes, “The singer-songwriter is everything a modern country star should be: hip, stylish, unafraid to incorporate pop into her records – and most importantly, supremely talented.”
On August 24th, she’ll make her highly anticipated local stop at Bridgestone Arena.
The record-breaker skyrocketed to stardom after releasing platinum certified, #1 smashes such as “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs,” “Peter Pan” from her gold-certified breakout “The First Time”. Ballerini is the only female artist in Country music history, including female duos and groups, to go #1 with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album.
As spotted on “Best Dressed” lists, the style maven appeared in a multi-page fashion spread in Cosmopolitan’s March 2018 issue, with several other high profile looks in 2017: Billboard Magazine’s Grammy preview issue; Forbes’ “30 Under 30” class; and People Magazine’s “Beauty at Every Age” list in their iconic World’s Most Beautiful issue. Praised by The New York Times as an “elegant songwriter,” Ballerini has received the esteemed ASCAP Vanguard Award, CMT Next Women of Country’s Impact Award, Nashville Business Journal’s Artist of the Year, ACM Honor’s Gene Weed Milestone Award, iHeartRadio Music Award for Best New Country Artist, Billboard Women in Music’s Rising Star, multiple Radio Disney Music Awards plus several breakthrough female awards from ACM and CMT.
