Not Perfect, Just Real – Kelsea Ballerini

Kelsea Ballerini isn’t going to let her success or pressure from within the industry change the kind of music she makes. Kelsea tells the Chicago Tribune, “As a young girl there are pressures that come with any career, but I decided when I got into this I didn’t want to be perfect. I just want to be real and who I am.” And there are plenty of good reasons why Ballerini would never compromise her integrity as an artist. She says, “That’s something I’d feel comfortable with any little girl looking up to so that’s who I try to be.”


  • Kelsea also talked about how she’s looking forward to her first-ever headlining trek; the aptly titled “The First Time Tour.” She shares, “When you headline, you get to just be available and really be one on one with your fans. I really want to make myself as available as I can be for them.”
  • “The First Time Tour” will kick off on October 21 in Houston, Texas, and will wrap up in December with a two-night stand in Las Vegas with special guest Cam.
