Kelsea Ballerini's sophomore album, Unapologetically, drops today (Friday, November 3rd). The project comes more than two years after the release of her debut project, The First Time, which produced three consecutive Number One hits. As with the last album, Kelsea wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs, including the debut single, "Legends."
She tells us that she feels a lot different going into the release of Unapologetically. ["So much more anxiety. I mean, gosh, when I put out my first album I didn't know anything. I had never done a live show before. I didn't know what to expect at all and this one . . . The last three years have just been like a whirlwind and amazing which puts a really . . . not pressure, but a little bit of pressure on this record, and, yeah, I'm just ready to get it out."] SOUNDCUE (:28 OC: . . . get it out.)
Kelsea's next performance will be on the CMA Awards on Wednesday (November 8th). She is set to duet with Reba McEntire on "Legends." The show airs live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on ABC beginning at 8 p.m. ET. Kelsea is also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year.
