KELSEA BALLERINI'S NEW ALBUM 'UNAPOLOGETICALLY'

KELSEA BALLERINI




Nashville, Tenn. – The wait is officially over as Black River Entertainment recording artist KELSEA BALLERINI’s much-anticipated sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, is available everywhere today.



“’UNAPOLOGETICALLY’ means leading with your heart, trusting it, following it and not letting other people’s opinions sway it,” Ballerini reveals. “From heartbreak to finding the love of my life and embracing the ‘in between’ – this album is all in order, just like it happened. Loss, life, love… this is my story, unapologetically.”



Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey – in addition to Shane McAnally, Lindsay Rimes, and Jimmy Robbins on select tracks – UNAPOLOGETICALLY spotlights 12 tunes written or co-written by Ballerini. Penned with “blood, sweat, and heartbeats,” the striking successor to her critically acclaimed, GOLD-certified THE FIRST TIME, exposes the intimate journey of loss, life, and love that the Country star has experienced since her history-making debut album.



"These are exciting days for Kelsea and Black River,” said Gordon Kerr, CEO of Black River Entertainment. “With the success of her first album; including three number one songs and a Top 3 single, we are extremely grateful to the outstanding radio promotion staff at Black River and all the people who came alongside Kelsea to make history with her first album. As we launch Kelsea's second album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, we look forward to continuing this journey alongside Kelsea and the wonderful people that day in and day out, tirelessly work to advance this great artist’s music."



Early reviews have critics applauding Ballerini’s fearless evolution as both an artist and songwriter alike:



“Her voice is winningly sweet, and also durably strong — it suggests a carefully withheld tenderness. And she is an elegant songwriter…”

Kelsea Ballerini




Nashville, Tenn. (May 16, ­­2017) – Black River Entertainment’s Kelsea Ballerini made her wildly successful UK debut last week when she performed a SOLD OUT headlining concert at London’s hip UNDER THE BRIDGE nightclub, charmed viewers during several TV appearances and even popped in to chat with Steve Wright at BBC Radio 2, further showing strong international appeal that will propel the star toward new horizons this year.



Having already captured American hearts with her graceful, sincere and fun-loving brand of modern country music, Sony Music Commercial Group in conjunction with Black River Entertainment hosted the record-breaking singer/songwriter in support of the UK release of her critically acclaimed debut album THE FIRST TIME. This special UK edition features four bonus acoustic tracks along with her lead UK single, “XO” (Ballerini / Gravitt / O’Brien), now spinning on BBC Radio 2.



Kicking the week off with a packed showcase in front of the UK’s finest in media, streaming, television and radio (May 9), Ballerini was then greeted by roaring fans at UNDER THE BRIDGE (May 11) who sang along to every word of historic #1 hits like the deeply moving ballad “Peter Pan,” uptempo jams “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs,” and her fun-and-flirty Top 5 single “Yeah Boy.” Ballerini’s concert experience was described by local media as “electric” and a hint of big things to come.



“Kelsea rocked Under the Bridge last night and now she’s tested the waters here in the UK ... With a warm stage presence, an engaging personality and a set list full of great songs, Kelsea showed the UK why she’s one of the biggest new artists in Country music.” – Entertainment Focus Read the full review here.



Ballerini won’t stay away from her new fans for long. On May 26, she’ll kick off Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR in Bakersfield, California, which this fall will play to massive international audiences including the following dates:

SINGER KELSEA BALLERINI ROCKING IN ISLA BOOTS

Kelsea Ballerini



Another one of Swift's squad members was spotted around town in a pair of BED|STU ISLA booties. Singer Kelsea Ballerini was gearing up for a day with Radio Disney this past weekend, rocking a pair of ISLA boots in Red Lux ($245, bedstu.com), perfectly complimenting her winter fringe look.



The Nashville native took a style note from bestie Taylor Swift - who was spotted rocking the same pair in Brown Driftwood during a daytime Australian adventure with Blake Lively earlier this month. Jaime King, who picked them out for Swift, also wore pair of ISLA in Teak Rustic in Malibu last month.
