Nashville, TN (September 15, 2015) – Black River Entertainment’s Kelsea Ballerini will appear on NBC’s Access Hollywood Live tomorrow
(9/16) to talk with hosts Kit Hoover and Billy Bush about her
record-breaking success with debut #1 single “Love Me Like You Mean It”
and scoring her first-ever Country Music Association (CMA) Award
nominations in two categories – New Artist of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. Check local listings for broadcast details.
Touted by BILLBOARD as “Country’s Next Queen,” praised by ROLLING STONE
as one of the “10 Artists You Need To Know” from all genres and
selected as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, Ballerini launched to
stardom with the release of her #1, GOLD-certified debut “Love Me Like
You Mean It” and current Top 30-and-climbing hit “Dibs.” Abuzz with
shout-outs from superstars Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Little Big
Town, she is the first solo female artist in nine years to hit #1 with
her debut country single and one of only 11 women to have ever hit the
top of the charts with a debut. Both “Love Me Like You Mean It” and
“Dibs” are featured on her debut album THE FIRST TIME
(Black River Entertainment), co-produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and
Jason Massey, which landed Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.
After spending the summer opening select shows for Alan Jackson, Lady
Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, she will join
Dan + Shay’s JUST THE RIGHT KIND OF CRAZY TOUR this fall.
