Host Biography

With more than 1.5 billion global streams, two-time GRAMMY nominee Kelsea Ballerini's sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, features #1 hits: "Legends" and "Miss Me More," among the original 12-track compilation all written or co-written by the acclaimed singer-songwriter. UNAPOLOGETICALLY (Deluxe Edition) includes four additional tracks like her collaboration with The Chainsmokers, "This Feeling." Since her 2015 breakout, the Black River Entertainment artist has been honored by ACM, Billboard and CMT, among several others, and was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry this year as the youngest current member. With major high-profile print features in Billboard, Cosmopolitan, Entertainment Weekly, Health, People, Shape, and Women's Health, she continues to elevate her star power, while making history in Country music by remaining the only female artist, including female duos and groups, to claim #1 with her first three consecutive singles – PLATINUM-certified, top-charting smashes: "Love Me Like You Mean It," "Dibs," "Peter Pan" – from a debut album [GOLD-certified THE FIRST TIME]. Ballerini capped her widely-popular first headline arena trek, THE MISS ME MORE TOUR, after being direct support for Kelly Clarkson's MEANING OF LIFE TOUR.
