One of America's hottest new country acts will be supporting Lady Antebellum on their UK and Irish tour . Kelsea Ballerini has just celebrated her 24th birthday but she has already sold over 2 million singles and 300,000 albums in the USA, had 80 million YouTube views and is fast approaching 250 million streams.



In 2015, Kelsea received Billboard's prestigious Rising Star award at their Women In Music event, while last year she received CMT's Breakout Artist of the Year. This year she was nominated for the Best New Artist Grammy and Best New Country Artist Award at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

She and fellow country music artist Brett Young will support Lady Antebellum on their their 'You Look Good' tour which plays Manchester Arena on October 4, Dublin 3Arena on October 5, Glasgow Hydro Arena on October 7, Arena Birmingham (the former Barclaycard Arena) on October 9 and London O2 Arena on October 10.



Expect to hear songs from Kelsea's new album, Unapologetically, which is released on November 3."I feel like I've been keeping a secret for two years that I finally get to tell," Kelsea admits. "I've never been more proud as I am of this record, the story it tells, and the heart my friends and I put into it.''

The album marks the latest chapter of Kelsea's musical story. After the US Top 5 release of her 2015 debut, The First Time, the girl from Knoxville, Tennessee, saw her first three singles – Love Me Like You Mean It, Peter Pan and Dibs – reach number one, a feat never before achieved by a female in country music history. Her fourth single, Yeah Boy, achieved gold status and rose to number three on Billboard's Country Airplay chart.



Kelsea reveals that when parents divorced she heard Keith Urban's Stupid Boy, its gut-wrenching lyrics and raw story prompting her to put her own feelings on paper. Also inspired by Kelly Clarkson, Shania Twain and Taylor Swift, she began to write her own songs.

At the age of 15, she and her mother moved from East Tennessee to Nashville where she became a serious contender as country music's next big star. As well as headlining her own shows she has toured with Lady Antebellum, Rascall Flatts, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.

Her experiences have influenced her new album, including latest single, Legends, which, she says, is full of "blood, sweat, and heartbeats'', adding that it's a heart-melting tale of ''crazy, tragic, epic love".
