Best New Artist Nominees Kelsea Ballerini & Maren Morris Talk Repping The Girls at the Grammys

Best New Artist Nominees Kelsea Ballerini & Maren Morris Talk Repping The Girls at the Grammys

Are you familiar with Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris at all? If you aren’t, you should be.

The only female artists to be nominated at the 2017 Grammy Awards for Best New Artist, are also country artists — and you need to be paying attention to them. There’s a reason they’re nominated.

Kelsea shared in a new interview about being nominated: “It’s the people that love music, do music, judge music, fight for music for a living, saying, ‘We’ve listened to 500 hundred new artists that are eligible this year and we think you’re one of the best five.’ That makes me feel cooler than I have ever felt in my life.”

She added, “I definitely feel like for any female, the odds weren’t necessarily in our favor…we were really maybe underrated a bit in the beginning because we were on this independent label.”

Maren, who is up for three other awards at the event, says the same: “I think it’s a huge step forward for people taking women into consideration because you have to have another perspective on the radio, and I think the Grammys have done a really great solid by recognizing quality art. And I think the girls really brought it this year.”

Songs you MUST listen to from Kelsea and Maren: “Secondhand Smoke” and “I Could Use A Love Song“.

Grammys Best New Artist Nom Kelsea Ballerini Doesn't Have A Clue Who Will Win!

Even Kelsea Ballerini says the Best New Artist category at the 2017 Grammy Awards is just too hard to pick a winner!

The country singer, who’s nominated with fellow country artist Maren Morris, The Chainsmokers, Chance the Rapper and R&B singer/songwriter Anderson.Paak, dished about her nomination and how she and Maren are sticking together.

“There’s never been two country artists in this category before,” Kelsea shares. “Let alone two female country artists. It’s really cool to kind of carry that torch with her.”

She adds that instead of turning into rivals, the two are not going that route at all.

“She texted me, right when they came out that morning, and she was like, ‘Oh my gosh, we’re going to the Grammys!… We should get ready together,’” Kelsea said. “And I was like, ‘We have to bring the big hair and the glitter!’” she jokes.

She added about category as a whole: “Everyone in the category is actually truly really, really good. So I think it’s anyone’s game. It’s gonna be great!”

FYI: Kelsea is wearing an ASOS dress, Stuart Weitzman heels and an Emm Kuo clutch to the 2017 Billboard Power 100 event in Los Angeles on Thursday (February 9).
