Surrounded by the bright lights of New York City’s iconic Times Square, the marquee of the PlayStation Theater illuminated SOLD OUT as Black River Entertainment’s Kelsea Ballerini hit the stage for one of her biggest headlining stops on THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR on Friday (April 6).
At full capacity, the Country music trailblazer dared fans to sing “aggressively loud” – which they happily obliged – throughout her thematic setlist. With each passionate vignette of “loss, life, and love” from her acclaimed sophomore album, Unapologetically, Ballerini was left stunned by the intense call-and-response of her high-energy audience, especially during history-making #1 “Legends” – notching her the most #1s for a female artist since debuting on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in 2015 – and current chart-climbing single, “I Hate Love Songs.”
Up next, Kelsea will jet to Las Vegas to participate in on-site events including the sold-out 95.5 THE BULL’S 10TH ANNUAL ALL-STAR GUITAR PULL (4/12) and the inaugural ACM WORKOUT FOR A CAUSE: ERIN OPREA UNLEASHED TOUR (4/14), leading up to the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards on April 15. Vying for Female Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year (“Legends”), Ballerini is also slated to perform live on CBS.
