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.
