EDITORS’ NOTES

Kelsea Ballerini knows exactly what she wants in a relationship: no wimps. Opener "XO" calls out a guy who can't get over his ex, then "Peter Pan" does the same with one who refuses to grow up. Both songs skip through sparkling country-pop arrangements, seamlessly layering banjo licks with rock guitars and laptop effects. The combination is contemporary, not disruptive, and she revels in it on the effervescent "Love Me Like You Mean It," a skittering, hook-filled kiss-off to another doofus who can't commit. She deserves better.

Bubblegum Southern Pop

iheartnickfradiani,

She's a pop singer with a country accent. Her songs sound like something a 15 year old would sing..Thank you to Taylor Swift for dumping your southern clone on us :/

So excited!

Anonymous2287,

I can't wait to listen to this on repeat. I have been waiting to preorder and even though I haven't head the entire album yet I know it'll get five stars from me.

About Kelsea Ballerini

A country-pop singer and songwriter out of Knoxville, Tennessee, Kelsea Ballerini started writing songs when she was 13 years old, began learning guitar a year later, and moved to Nashville at 15 to pursue her dream of being a professional singer and songwriter. Four years later in 2013, when she was 19, Ballerini signed a publishing deal with Black River Publishing and a recording deal with Black River Entertainment later that same year. A debut single, "Love Me Like You Mean It," appeared from the label in 2014; the single slowly became a big hit, reaching number five on the Billboard country singles charts and number one on its country airplay charts. A digital EP, simply titled Kelsea Ballerini, was released in November 2014, and as word about Ballerini spread, she was named one of 2014's Next Women of Country by CMT and appeared on the Grand Ol' Opry for the first time on February 13, 2015. In May 2015, Black River released Ballerini's first full-length album, The First Time; it debuted at four on Billboard's U.S. country charts and 31 on the Billboard Top 200, eventually going gold. In June 2017, Ballerini released "Legends," the first single from her follow-up LP. ~ Steve Leggett
