Sparking a high-profile streak of three anticipated television performances, Black River Entertainment’s KELSEA BALLERINI first brought her chart-rising single, “I Hate Love Songs,” to NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday night.
“With great control and tasteful falsetto, Ballerini sang sassy lines” (Billboard) in front of a hot pink Yamaha grand piano while dressed in a stylish mixed denim suit by Chloé. Her soulful appearance to much applause follows her premiere stop on the late-night program two years ago.
For a second year, she’ll join Thomas Rhett next Wednesday (8/8), to co-host ABC’s CMA Fest. Filmed live during the annual four-day music festival at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium this past June, Ballerini is also slated to perform. The three-hour primetime special airs beginning at 8/7c.
Watch a hilarious blooper reel of Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett getting ready for “The Music Event of Summer” here.
Ballerini returns to Nashville on August 24 as Keith Urban’s special guest on his GRAFFITI U WORLD TOUR. Introducing songs off her acclaimed sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, she’ll continue the trek through November 3 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX.
