Lauded by this week’s Entertainment Weekly ”3 Rounds With” feature, “Country music is notoriously male-dominated industry, but one woman makes conquering it look easy: Kelsea Ballerini.” The trailblazing Black River Entertainment recording artist’s nationwide trek kicks off February 8 at the Alabama Theatre in Birmingham, AL, and wraps April 27 at the annual Stagecoach Festival in Indio, CA (on-sale now), with stops in Nashville, TN, New York, NY and Seattle, WA.
“Great things happen when music surrounds you, I really believe that,” shared Ballerini. “One of the coolest things to me about headlining is being able to create a world for your fans to step into. I can’t wait for you to join me on this new journey with my good friend Walker and begin chapter two together!”

Named among the “30 Biggest Albums of Fall” by Entertainment Weekly, GRAMMY nominee Kelsea Ballerini has released her first heart-melting anthemic single “Legends” off her highly anticipated sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, slated to drop November 3. The Black River Entertainment artist 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. The talented singer-songwriter also reached GOLD with Top 5 hit “Yeah Boy,” after having written or co-written all 12 songs on her debut. Ballerini has appeared on the cover of Billboard Magazine’s GRAMMY preview issue,

After her 2016 headline THE FIRST TIME TOUR – which visited dozens of cities across the U.S. and included sold-out shows in her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee; Minneapolis, Minnesota; New York City; Los Angeles; and more – Ballerini joined Thomas Rhett for his HOME TEAM TOUR followed by Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR. Awarded Billboard’s “Rising Star” title at the prestigious 2015 Women in Music event, she has continued to gain recognition by scoring her first-ever ACM Award win for New Female Vocalist of the Year, iHeartRadio Music Award for Best New Country Artist, multiple Radio Disney Music Awards, American Country Countdown Award (ACCA) for Breakthrough Female of the Year, ACM Honors’ Gene Weed Milestone Award and acknowledged as Artist of the Year by Nashville Business Journal.
