Kelsea Ballerini Looks Back

Published On June 10, 2015 | By Cheryl Johnstone | Country Music News

Kelsea Ballerini could possibly take home her very first award at tonight’s CMT Music Awards in Nashville. The 21-year-old singer is up for Breakthrough Video of the Year for her hit single, “Love Me Like You Mean It.”

Kelsea attended the CMT Awards last year, but she tells us this time around will be a completely different experience.

“This is my first nomination, and I was singing as a fan at the CMT Awards last year, and now I get to perform and I’m nominated. Like what a year, but I’m so excited! I’m excited just to be there and watch the show. I’ve always loved award shows, and Breakthrough is such a cool category. Like, I’m so new still so it’s really cool to be kind of in that category with people like Sam Hunt who’s just massive so it’s awesome!”

Kelsea is nearing the top of the country charts with “Love Me Like You Mean It,” which sits at Number Three on the Country charts this week.

Her debut album, The First Time, was released last month.
