Kelsea Ballerini Comes Full Circle
Kelsea Ballerini has come a long way in just a few months, and that’s certainly not lost on her. The singer has a big hit on her hands with her debut single, “Love Me Like You Mean It,” she’s on a major tour with Lady Antebellum, and superstar Taylor Swift can’t stop tweeting about her.
The fact that it’s CMA Music Festival week in Nashville seems to bring everything full circle for Kelsea.
“To give you my perspective, my first CMA Fest I was 14 and I waited in line to meet two people — one was Taylor Swift, one was Lady Antebellum, and Taylor found my music and tweeted about it which was so cool of her to do and has since reached out and she’s incredible, and I am now good friends with Hillary (Scott) and have part of the Lady A tour. I tell people those stories cause I’m like that’s what this last year has been and it’s crazy! Like those are the things that happen and like the Taylor tweet and going on the few days of the tour with Lady A. I have to pinch myself cause it’s like I’m such fans of these people and now I get to kind of be a part of their little world and it’s really cool.”
Kelsea performs at CMA Fest today and she hits the road again with Lady A on the Wheels Up tour on Sunday, June 14th in Rogers, Arkansas.
