Ballerini announces debut - of poetry collection

Thursday, June 24, 2021 – Kelsea Ballerini will publish her debut poetry collection, "Feel Your Way Through," on Nov. 16.

The book will be on Ballantine Hardcover by Ballantine, an imprint of Random House. The jacket image, painted by Ballerini, was also revealed.

Ballerini opens up about everything from family dynamics, relationships and body image to confidence, self-love, sexuality and the lessons of youth she's picked up along the way.

"I've realized that some feelings can't be turned into a song, so I've started writing poems," she said. "Just like my songs, they talk about what it's like to be twenty-something trying to navigate a wildly beautiful and broken world."

Ballerini's current single is "half of my hometown," featuring Kenny Chesney. Ballerini recently released the music video, which is an ode to her hometown of Knoxville, Tenn.

Ballerini is joining the Jonas Brothers on The Remember This Tour later this summer.

CD review - Unapologetically It already seems like Kelsea Ballerini is a fixture on the scene, but America's barely had time to blink since her debut, "The First Time." Four major singles, a headlining tour and an armful of awards are just some of the harvest that followed. Some of that star power exceeds musical gifts - Ballerini has that insta-charm that makes her a ready TV guest or host. She's from Tennessee and smiles for miles. But she also gives off a wiser, worldlier vibe than many others of her ...
CD review - The First Time "Why do we need you? There's already a Taylor Swift." So said a Nashville record executive to a teenage Kelsea Ballerini. It undoubtedly stung at the time - but she was still in high school and had only travelled from Knoxville. Now that same executive is likely pricing a self-kicking machine. Ballerini's self-titled EP released last year scored big with a Top Ten Country single, "Love Me Like You Mean It." "The First Time," her full-sized debut, has now ...
