Congrats to Kelsea Ballerini!
The 22-year-old country cutie will receive the Rising Star honor at Billboard’s 2015 Women In Music event.
Given to Ariana Grande last year, the Rising Star award is given to an artist whose success on the Billboard charts and talent demonstrate a clear path to success.
“At 22, Kelsea Ballerini already has a career to kill for, from a hit song to award nominations and even a stop at the famed Grand Ole Opry,” Janice Min, co-president and chief creative officer of Guggenheim Media’s Entertainment Group, shared. “Much like Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift before, Kelsea is a powerful songwriter and singer that has Nashville a buzz. Expertly bridging the pop-country gap, her songs have heart and it is only the beginning.”
