Kelsea Ballerini's Upcoming Album Is All About Self Discovery

Kelsea Ballerini glitters in gold on stage during the 11th Annual ACM Honors held at the Ryman Auditorium on Wednesday night (August 23) in Nashville, Tenn.

During the event, the singer who received the Gene Weed Milestone Award, performed her hit single “Legends”, as well as a medley of her #1 hits “Dibs,” “Love Me Like You Mean It,” and “Peter Pan.”

Speaking with Vulture recently about her next album that drops in November, Kelsea revealed that the entire album is about self discovery.

“I think it’s just self-discovery, that it’s okay to be a little bit mad. It’s okay to write from that point of view,” Kelsea says. “…The first four songs is that, just angsty, dark, but kind of ending in, ‘Bye, I’m going to go figure out who I am now.’”

She continues, “The middle is just settling into who I am at 23 and knowing that that’s going to change tomorrow, but today this is who I am. And then going into that moment where you’re like, ‘I wasn’t expecting this, but here it is. Love is how this is gonna end.’”

“To put it simply, it’s loss, life and love,” Kelsea shared. “If you really listen to it as a story, it’s chronological. It’s how it happened.”

FYI: Kelsea wore an Elisabetta Franchi bodysuit and pants, Jasmine Elizabeth heels, and Gabriel & Co. jewels.

Singer Kelsea Ballerini Will Inspire You Never Ever To Give Up On Your Dreams

Singer Kelsea Ballerini Will Inspire You Never Ever To Give Up On Your Dreams

Sometimes, you just want to give up — either because things aren’t working out for you or just because you lost a little heart along the way.

Singer Kelsea Ballerini is going to give you all the inspiration you need not to give up on your dreams.

Speaking with Cosmopolitan, the “Legends” singer opened up about how she never gave up, in spite of facing some hardships along the way to getting her record deal.

“I was going to college, because me and my mom made a deal: Until you get a job in music, go get an education,” Kelsea shared. “I took classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and I would write and take meetings Tuesday and Thursday. I wrote songs all the time, and I took myself really seriously.”

She adds, “I found that in that, people found were like, ‘Oh, she means this. This isn’t just like a hobby. This is a passion.’”

Her perseverance paid off too — because she got a publishing deal.

“That was kind of the first step into the real music industry…and I was able to leave school and do it full time,” Kelsea says. “So I wrote songs full-time for a year, and at the end of that year is when I got my record deal.”
