Kelsea Ballerini Brings “I Hate Love Songs” to Life at CMA Fest 2018

CMA Fest was a busy one for Kelsea Ballerini!

The 24-year-old country star performed at various events throughout Nashville last week, including the 2018 CMT Awards, the Nightly Concerts at Nissan Stadium, and the most important of them all — her fanclub party.

Before hitting the big stage at Nissan Stadium, Ballerini revealed her lovestruck video for her new single “I Hate Love Songs” on Friday (June 8). At her fan club party, the country-pop princess had sets from the visual onsite that were reconstructed in the heart of Music City inside Bridgestone Arena.


With popcorn popping, there was a special showing of the full-length music video with Ballerini, before she revealed such spots as the “Legends Diner” and the bubblegum pink wall covered with an explosion of streamers, balloons, and flowers. Guests were invited to walk through the sets plus snag a photo with Ballerini, before receiving a box of Russell Stover-brand chocolates as a souvenir. She also made the day super special for one fan, as she had asked to sing “Graveyard” with the Country star during the Q&A, which Ballerini made happen during her mini concert.
