Who Is She
Born September 12, 1993 Kelsea Ballerini is an American country pop singer and songwriter. She grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee where she sang in the church and school choirs. She wrote her first song at 12 for her mother and moved to Nashville, Tennessee three years later. She attended Lipscomb University for two years before pursuing her musical career. She released her debut single "Love Me Like You Mean It", which debuted on the Country Airplay chart in October 2014. She was named one of CMT's Next Women of Country in 2014. "Love Me Like You Mean It" reached number one on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, making Ballerini the first solo female country music artist to score a number one hit with her debut single since Carrie Underwood did so with "Jesus, Take The Wheel" in 2006, and only the eleventh in history to achieve the feat. "Peter Pan" reached number one on both the Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts in September, making Ballerini the first solo female country music artist to top both country music charts simultaneously.
