A new day means a new milestone reached in Kelsea Ballerini‘s career.
The rising star made country music history this afternoon with her third No. 1 hit “Peter Pan.” Ballerini is the only female artist in country music history, including female duos and groups, to go number one with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album.

'all it takes is faith, trust, and a little pixie dust'… …And two incredible cowriters (@forestglen & @jesseleemusic) and two passionate producers (@forestglen & @jason_massey) and a team/army of @black_river_entertainment, @_iconic_entertainment_, #FBMM @marbaloomktg, @sweettalkpr, @kristaroser, my band and crew, and my fans who fight to get my music heard every single day. Dearest country radio, thank you for being the pixie dust. We did it. It's number one. We just made history, y'all. ✨ #PeterPan
“Peter Pan” is topping both Country Aircheck and Billboard Country Airplay charts this week. The song also earns double #1’s on Billboard by also landing atop the Hot Country Songs chart. Following Florida Georgia Line’s impressive 18-week reign at #1 with “H.O.L.Y.,” Ballerini is the first woman to reach #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts simultaneously. Additionally, “Peter Pan” also reached its highest selling singles week at 26,652 units according to Nielsen Soundscan.
The excitement around these #1’s come on the heels of her breathtaking performance of “Peter Pan” on the Canadian Country Music Awards last night (9/11). The festivities will continue today as the Black River Entertainment artist returns to Nashville to celebrate both her 23rd birthday and third #1 single on country radio with family, friends, and team.
Congrats Kelsea on all your success!
