Black River Entertainment’s Kelsea Ballerini continues to write her own story with her record-breaking #1 “Legends” atop both Country Aircheck and the Billboard Country Airplay charts this week.
The Country superstar has now notched the most #1s for a female artist since debuting on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in 2015, with the lead single off her critically acclaimed sophomore album Unapologetically. Penned by Ballerini alongside Hillary Lindsey and Forest Glen Whitehead, the cinematic adjoining music video has captivated more than 12.3 million viewers to date.
As teased during her landmark headlining debut at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Valentine’s Day last week, Ballerini’s cheeky ode to a modern-day romance, “I Hate Love Songs,” is her next single hitting Country radio airwaves tomorrow (2/22) and officially impacting on 3/12. Ballerini co-wrote the ballad alongside wordsmiths Shane McAnally and Trevor Rosen.
“I will never forget introducing ‘I Hate Love Songs’ at the Grand Ole Opry before my record was even out, and just the overwhelming feeling of magic. I’d never experienced anything like that before with a song,” Ballerini recalls. “It’s sweet and sassy and I hope you love it as much as I do.”
Bringing her chronological sonic diary to life, 14 cities on THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR are sold out with limited tickets remaining in Santa Barbara, CA (4/25). Ballerini is also set for a batch of international dates including C2C: Country to Country 2018 in London, United Kingdom (3/9) and Dublin, Ireland (3/11); CMC Rocks in Ipswich, Australia (3/17 and 3/18); plus a continuation of THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR with a sold-out show at Metro Theatre in Sydney, Australia (3/20).
