Her tour recently stopped in Birmingham, AL (2/8), Chattanooga, TN (2/9), and Augusta, GA (2/10), Ballerini left her heart onstage each night as she powerfully delivered her critically acclaimed sophomore album UNAPOLOGETICALLY in full. Breaking down her 12-track collection in three chronological parts – loss, life, and love – her intense spectacle of uninhibited emotion is amplified through striking videos and stage lighting, plus multiple costume changes.
“The energy this weekend was unbelievable and I’m so amazed that my fans knew every word of the album cuts,” Ballerini shares. “Playing the Bell Auditorium in Augusta was my biggest headlining show so far in my career, and I can already tell this tour is going to be so special.”
Making venue history as now among the top 10 recorded attendances for the Bell Auditorium, watch Ballerini perform “Love Me Like You Mean It” in Augusta, GA.

About Kelsea Ballerini:
Applauded as GRAMMY nominee Kelsea Ballerini’s “grown-up statement” (Rolling Stone), the Black River Entertainment artist’s acclaimed sophomore album UNAPOLOGETICALLY takes listeners on an intimate journey of loss, life, and love. Top 5-and-rising “Legends” is the lead single off the 12-track compilation – all written or co-written by Ballerini. She’s currently on THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR, following her sold-out first headlining tour, THE FIRST TIME TOUR (2016). The record-breaker skyrocketed to stardom after releasing PLATINUM-certified, #1 smashes – “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Peter Pan,” “Dibs” – from her critically acclaimed, GOLD-certified breakout THE FIRST TIME. Ballerini is the only female artist in Country music history, including female duos and groups, to go #1 with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album. In 2017, she appeared on the cover of Billboard Magazine’s GRAMMY preview issue, was included in Forbes’ “30 Under 30” class, and featured in People Magazine’s “Beauty at Every Age” list in their iconic World’s Most Beautiful issue. Praised by The New York Times as an “elegant songwriter,” Ballerini has received the esteemed ASCAP Vanguard Award, CMT’s Impact Award after being chosen to be a part of CMT’s Next Women of Country, Nashville Business Journal’s Artist of The Year, ACM Honor’s Gene Weed Milestone Award, iHeartRadio Music Award for Best New Country Artist, ACM Award for New Female Vocalist of the Year (2016), ACCA Award for Breakthrough Female of the Year (2016), multiple Radio Disney Music Awards, and Billboard’s Rising Star title at the prestigious 2015 Women in Music event.
