Kelsea Ballerini is headed back out on the road next year — and she’s the headliner!!!

The “High School” singer just announced a handful of dates for her Unapologetically tour, kicking off in February 2018.

“Great things happen when music surrounds you, I really believe that,” Kelsea shared about the tour. “One of the coolest things to me about headlining is being able to create a world for your fans to step into. I can’t wait for you to join me on this new journey with my good friend Walker and begin chapter two together!”

During the tour, Kelsea will have two supporting acts with her, Walker Hayes and Bailey Bryan. The latter will join Kelsea for one-night only at the Ryman Auditorium on Valentine’s Day.

Kelsea Ballerini Has a Two Week Rule with Fiance Morgan Evans

Kelsea Ballerini and her fiance Morgan Evans at any given time can be separated by a full ocean, or even two — which is why they have one simple rule:

Go no more than two weeks without seeing each other.

Kelsea explains to People, “We’re buddies. We crack up together, and we have to be able to talk a lot because we’re not together a lot.”

She adds, “The two-week rule and just the fact that we genuinely just like each other along with loving each other [are the secrets].”


Kelsea and Morgan got engaged last Christmas and are planning to say their “I Dos” soon.

When she shows up to surprise you at a show … you bring her on stage and you #kisssomebody????

Kelsea Ballerini's New Song 'Miss Me More' Will Have an Amazing Hook

Kelsea Ballerini's New Song 'Miss Me More' Will Have an Amazing Hook

Kelsea Ballerini will be dropping a brand new song from her sophomore album tonight called “Miss Me More”.

Not much is known about the track, except that it’s in the “Loss” section of the album.

However, JJJ did a little digging and it looks like Kelsea‘s new song has a hook that you won’t be able to get out of your mind.

While speaking with Vulture about outside influences for Unapologetically, Kelsea dished that rap music was one of them and you can hear it on this song.

“I think another thing was getting really comfortable with having outside influences on this record. I love rap music. I think that country music and rap music are lyrically genius in very different ways, but [both] lyrically clever,” she says. “I’m obsessed with the patterns and the rhythms of rap.”

Kelsae added, “I love that you can have hooks that you have to sing at the top of your lungs for it to really matter, like ‘Miss Me More.’”

Whatever “Miss Me More” does sound like, we’re pretty sure we’ll be obsessed with it.

Stay tuned for the stream!

Singer Kelsea Ballerini's First Career Plan Was Much, Much Different Then Her Career Now

Singer Kelsea Ballerini's First Career Plan Was Much, Much Different Then Her Career Now

No one actually believes that you can just go into the music industry and make it, just like that — not even Kelsea Ballerini.

In fact, she had another career already planned out before she got her record deal — a veterinarian!

“I was from Knoxville and I always thought I was going to stay there and be a vet,” she told Parade magazine. “I didn’t think that you could just choose to be a singer and go pursue it and be [the next] Carrie Underwood.”

But it all changed when she did just that.

After it all happened, Kelsea had a clear plan for what kind of musician she wanted to be — an honest one.

“I decided that I wanted to be the same person on my albums as I was on social media as I was out to dinner with my mom as I was out having a glass of wine with my friends,” Kelsea says. “I wanted there to be a consistency between artist and person.”

“I think that I tried to write this album that way too, just being very open and honest.”

Kelsea‘s new album, Unapologetically, is out on November 3rd.

FYI: Kelsea is wearing a PrettyLittleThing sweater.
