Kelleigh Bannen Rocked Route 91 Harvest!

Going to Route 91 Harvest was driven by the sole reason that Country Artist Kelleigh Bannen was performing! She is after all one of our favorite artists/people to ever exist! We last saw her performing in June at CMA Fest and quite frankly, that entirely too long! She’s a gem and we feel lucky to have found her.


Bannen’s time in Las Vegas was short lived but not without exciting memories. I mean, who else got to share a nightcap with a RAT?!

Bannen kicked off the ‘Next From Nashville’ stage for day 2 of Route 91 Harvest and she did not disappoint! She performed songs off her EP including “Cheap Sunglasses,” Once Upon A,” “Landlocked” and even rapped TLC‘s “Waterfalls.” She ended her set with a very Vegas-esque song “Smoke When I Drink.”

Here’s a clip of “Daddy Got A Girlfriend” which has not officially been released yet!

After her set, Bannen even took time to meet all the fans who wanted to say hi and get a picture with the singer/songwriter. She shared more on social media later, including videos on her Instagram story where she watched Maren Morris and Sam Hunt from backstage! Clearly, she had no fun at all!

We had absolutely no fun in Vegas. 📷 @variety_beat. #route91harvest @route91harvest

Kelsea Ballerini’s “Legends” Music Video Will Have You In Tears.

We saw the tweets online about Kelsea Ballerini‘s new music video “Legends.” There were crying emojis everywhere!

Lady Antebellum‘s, Hillary Scott said it was a good thing she hadn’t done her make up yet!

When everyone is talking about how sad something is, it almost lessens it in a way, prepares you for it and you think you’re not as vulnerable. Right away you know something is going to happen because the opening scene is of a car accident.

The video takes us through this beautiful and simple love story. Just two people living and loving each other. We know tragedy is coming, but the part that had us in tears was that final finger wave.

See if you can make it through without crying.
