Occasionally an artist comes along that gives you a real confidence in the future of the country music genre – and Kelsea Ballerini fits that bill. Her debut album ‘The First Time’ in 2015 led to Kelsea winning ‘Billboard’s Rising Star’ award and the ‘New Female Vocalist’ award at the ACM’s. The album reached number 4 on the US Country Chart, while ‘Peter Pan’ from the album topped the country chart and country airplay chart. Kelsea’s 2nd album ‘Unapologetically’ was released at the back end of 2017 and lead single ‘Legends’ above would top the airplay chart too.
There is little doubt that the C2C crowd is in for a real treat when she appears on the first night of the festival – with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw following Kelsea on stage, it’s promises to be an amazing opening.
