Kelsea Ballerini Just Celebrated Her 2nd #1 Hit
She may be the new girl on the block, but Kelsea Ballerini is already making big waves in the country community. Her debut album, “The First Time,” has sold almost 122,000 copies since its release in May, which is an AWESOME feat for a new artist in any genre. She spent 2015 on a couple tours with Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Sam Hunt, and Dan + Shay. Her first single, “Love Me Like You Mean It,” was actually the first time a female country singer’s debut single went to #1 since Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus Take The Wheel.”
Wednesday, April 13th, Ballerini and her team celebrated her 2nd single and #1 hit, “Dibs.” ASCAP put on the event to honor the song’s writers, which include Ballerini, Josh Kerr, Jason Duke and Ryan Griffin. Ballerini is a part of Black River Entertainment, whose CEO, Gordon Kerr, popped up with a surprise of his own; turns out that “Dibs” is now certified gold by the RIAA as well! If that isn’t a hell of a day, then I couldn’t tell you what is. Congrats Kelsea, I hope your new single, “Peter Pan,” sees the same success!
