About Kelsea Ballerini: Dubbed GRAMMY nominee Kelsea Ballerini’s “grown-up statement” (Rolling Stone), the Black River Entertainment artist’s acclaimed sophomore album UNAPOLOGETICALLY takes listeners on an intimate journey of loss, life, and love. “Legends” marks the first chart-rising single among the 12-track compilation – all written or co-written by Ballerini. Following a sold-out first headlining tour, THE FIRST TIME TOUR, last year, Ballerini kicks off THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR this winter. The record-breaker skyrocketed to stardom after releasing three consecutive PLATINUM-certified, #1 smashes from her critically acclaimed, GOLD debut album THE FIRST TIME – “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Peter Pan,” and “Dibs” – making her the only female artist in Country music history, including female duos and groups, to achieve this accolade. Ballerini has appeared on the cover of Billboard magazine’s GRAMMY preview issue, was included in Forbes’ “30 Under 30” class of 2017, and featured in People magazine’s “Beauty at Every Age” list in their iconic World’s Most Beautiful issue for 2017. Praised by the New York Times as an “elegant songwriter,” Ballerini has received the esteemed ASCAP Vanguard Award, CMT’s Impact Award after being chosen to be a part of CMT’s Next Women of Country, Nashville Business Journal’s Artist of The Year, ACM Honor’s Gene Weed Milestone Award, iHeartRadio Music Award for Best New Country Artist, ACM Award for New Female Vocalist of the Year (2016), ACCA Award for Breakthrough Female of the Year (2016), multiple Radio Disney Music Awards, and Billboard’s Rising Startitle at the prestigious 2015 Women in Music event.
