Kelsea Ballerini Was Really Bitter When She Wrote 'Legends'

Kelsea Ballerini Was Really Bitter When She Wrote 'Legends'

We could listen to Kelsea Ballerini‘s new single “Legends” all day long, so it’s hard to believe that she was actually bitter when she wrote it.

The 23-year-old country singer explained to Fox News that’s exactly how she felt.

“When I wrote ['Legends'], it was in a break up,” she revealed. “It was in this period of my life where I had so much bitterness. It was a really healing song for me at the time.”

Now, since she’s gotten engaged to Aussie country singer Morgan Evans, Kelsea‘s had a chance to look back on it, and see it’s actually a brave and beautiful love song.

“When we were picking it as a single I thought, ‘Hey, is this something that you still relate to that you can sing and still have truth in it?’” she asked herself then.

The answer, is yes.

Listen to “Legends” on JJJ now, and watch the beautiful music video, too!

Kelsea Ballerini's Celeb Crush Is Still Nick Jonas

Kelsea Ballerini's Celeb Crush Is Still Nick Jonas

Kelsea Ballerini might be engaged to the hunky Morgan Evans, but that doesn’t mean she can’t crush on anyone.

While speaking to HuffPo’s The Tea, the “Legends” singer admitted that her celeb crush will forever be Nick Jonas…and Joe Jonas…and Kevin Jonas!

“I said that in so many interviews when I was first coming out [in the music scene] and [since] then I met them several times,” she says.

“All I could think about was ‘Oh, my god, I’m in a room with these guys. They’re going to see an interview and think I’m the creepiest person because in every interview I’m like, “Nick Jonas is my celebrity crush!”‘.”

Kelsea will probably forever say that any of the Jonas Brothers are still her crushes, but she’s now friends with them too.

“We’re friends and it’s weird now, but it’s the truth,” Kelsea admits. “I literally had posters of them on my wall, like, determined to marry one of them. And, yeah, now it’s weird.”

Kelsea Ballerini Goes To Taylor Swift For Music Industry Advice

Kelsea Ballerini and Taylor Swift have one of the cutest friendships out there and it gets even better when you realize Kelsea goes to Taylor for advice all the time.

Especially when it comes to the country music industry.

“To have people like Taylor who really blazed the trail for any new artist ever to come into country music…she is the reason it’s happening,” Kelsea shared in a new interview.

“To be able to ask her questions and ask her opinion and all that, but also look to her and see how she’s done it and done it so well — she’s just classy.”

Kelsea adds that she considers Taylor to not only be a good friend, but a role model as well.

“It’s very important to have those people to look up to. Having role models [in country music] in general is so important, but they’re my friends, too.”

Kelsea Ballerini is Planning a Nontraditional Wedding With Three Different Dresses

We can NOT stop dancing to Kelsea Ballerini‘s new song, “Legends” (listen here)– but the country star has more than music on her mind!

In a new interview, the 23-year-old singer opens up about her upcoming nuptials, including the details that she and her fiance Morgan Evans have finally settled on.

“It’s something to look forward to at the end of the year!” she revealed to E! News. We knew they had a date planned, but now we know that Kelsea definitely plans on a nontraditional ceremony.

She doesn’t have her dress yet, but that could be because she wants to wear THREE different outfits!

“I always grew up thinking about my Grammys dress or my award show dress,” she explained, “Not a wedding dress. I am excited; I’ve seen a few that I love so I’m sure we’ll get that one that will be awesome.”

She is also considering karaoke at the reception, but “you can’t be good at karaoke: it’s not allowed.”

Guess that rules the bride out! We can’t wait to see her in her three dresses!

Kelsea Ballerini's New Album Will Be A Lot Bolder

Kelsea Ballerini looks ready for summer in a sweet pink jumpsuit at the Bumble and Lady Antebellum “You Look Good” Bumble Bee.tique event in Nashville, Tenn., this weekend.

Just a few days before, the “Legends” singer and Cassadee Pope were spotted performing at the 2017 CMA Music Festival.

After the singer debuted her brand new single “Legends” earlier this week, JJJ couldn’t help but wonder about the rest of her new album, which she’s still working on.

Are there collaborations? What other songs are on it? Will it be anything like her debut record, The First Time?

“I’m so excited about [this album],” Kelsea shared in a recent interview with Billboard. “I thought that I was attached to my first one, and this one is even more so; it’s, like, me in music form.

She adds, “I think it’s going to be a lot more bolder, a lot lighter and a whole lot darker than my first album.”

Here are the songs that we know, for sure, that are on the album: “Legends” and “High School”. We can’t wait!

FYI: Kelsea wore a Victoria Hayes Collection jacket, Bryan Hearns top, Elisabetta Franchi pants, Lipstik shoes and Graziela Gems rings at the CMA Fest. She also wore a cute Wolford bodysuit and Lavish Alice skirt combo, with Sebastian Milano heels and Rachel Katz jewelry.

Kelsea Ballerini's First Ever Performance of New Song 'Legends' Is Truly Magical

Kelsea Ballerini put on such a spectacular performance at the 2017 CMT Music Awards last night in Nashville.

This was the first time that she was performing her brand new single, “Legends”, which she dedicated to her fans.

“When I wrote this song, I knew it was the beginning of the next chapter,” Kelsea writes on Instagram. “And while I hope you hear your own story of love or loss and the lyrics bring you to your own place of nostalgia, I also hope you hear our story.”

She adds, “Over the last 3 years, you and I have fought for each other. We’ve shown up for each other. We’ve been neon in grey crowds. We’ve written our own story. We were legends. And that is why it only makes sense that we start chapter two together, you and me.”

“Thank you for everything.”
