Earlier that morning, the “Legends” singer revealed that her sophomore album, Unapologetically, will be out in November.

Kelsea adds, “The first time was an introduction — I wanted to cover who I was, where I was from, the age that I was, first heartbreak, first crush, parents getting divorced, insecurities. The last two years of my life have been literally jam-packed, a lifetime into two years.”

For her sophomore album, Kelsea says, she “had to shift my focus and figure out what I wanted this [album] to be.”

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 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 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.”
