Black River Entertainment’s 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 (8/1), 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 (8/3). In addition, she’ll co-host ABC’s CMA Fest alongside Thomas Rhett for the second year in a row next Wednesday (8/8). 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 3 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 24, she’ll make her highly anticipated local stop at Bridgestone Arena.
ABOUT KELSEA BALLERINI:
Applauded as 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. The 12-track compilation – all written or co-written by Ballerini – features the GOLD-certified, #1 hit “Legends” and current chart-rising single “I Hate Love Songs.” This summer, she’s Keith Urban’s featured artist on the GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR, after wrapping her own sold-out headlining THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR. The record-breaker skyrocketed to stardom after releasing PLATINUM-certified, #1 smashes – “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.
