Okay so, if you haven’t already heard of Kelsea Ballerini, one- WTF? Also two- hang on tight because you’re about to!
Kelsea is a country music artist and songwriter from Nashville and ohhh boy, has this girl got talent!
Kelsea has just spent a week in Australia sharing her new music with us, doing promo and putting on shows! Naturally, we have become even more obsessed!
If you need some catching up, take a seat and put your seat belt on, because things are gonna get wild.
Kelsea is only 24-years-old and has already achieved more in the music industry than some people do in a lifetime.
She wrote her first song at 12-years-old and at just 19, she signed a deal with Black River Entertainment!
Kelsea released her first album The First Time back in 2015, and her success in America and across the world literally took off like a rocket.
Her first single, Love Me Like You Mean It, hit number 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, which made Kelsea the first solo female country music artist to score a number one hit with her debut single since Carrie Underwood did back in 2006.
This made Kelsea the 11th person in history to achieve this.
When she released her second single, Dibs, Kelsea then became only the fifth solo female country music artist EVER to have back-to-back number one hits.
The album's third single, Peter Pan, reached number one on both the Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts which made Kelsea the first solo female country music artist to top both country music charts simultaneously.
This also made her the first solo female to get her first three singles to number 1 since Wynonna Judd did back in 1992.
Her second album, Unapologetically was just released a few months ago in November 2017, and once again, the success followed!
Just two years ago, Kelsea came to Australia for the first time as a brand new artist and introduced us to her music and now she is back, performing at CMC Rocks last weekend and headlining her own sold out shows!
Kelsea has shared the stage with some of her biggest inspirations, including Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, Reba and Keith Urban.
We also have to mention that later this year, Kelsea is opening for the one and only Keith Urban for his World Tour... LITERALLY WHATTTT?
Kelsea is extremely relatable, because let's be real, she is on our level.
She is the most down to earth and gracious artist we have had in the studio and is one to watch over here.
After all, she is an adopted Aussie. Kelsea recently married the love her life, Australian country singer, Morgan Evans.
We are so excited to see where this next year is going to take her, and tbh, we all know this girl is gonna slay.
We caught up with Kelsea while she was here in Australia and we covered everything from love, to break up advice, to life advice, to fangirling, and geeking out over lyrics on her new album Unapologetically!
