At 21-years-old, Kelsea Ballerini is breaking records with her gold-certified single “Love Me Like You Mean It,” which has made her the first solo female Country singer in nine years (since Carrie Underwood) to have a debut track hit No. 1. That would also make her the eleventh women ever to hit that spot.
Colour us impressed.
Since releasing her debut album, the Country songstress joined Lady Antebellum for the North American leg of their Wheels Up Tour, and will be sharing the stage with Dan + Shay on select dates for their Just The Right Kinda Crazy Tour from October 8th to the 24th. Yeah, she’s one busy lady.
