It has been eight months since she released her last single “Yeah Boy” but Kelsea Ballerini is back. Today she released her new single “Legends”, which will be the first from her upcoming second album. The song is a mid-tempo ballad and is a fantastic slice of country pop which we cannot get enough of. “Legends” has been storming up the iTunes chart since its release this morning, and if Kelsea’s previous singles are any indication, it won’t be long before this track is hitting the top spot.
Kelsea took to Instagram to announce the news, dedicating the song to her fans.
When I wrote this song, I knew it was the beginning of the next chapter. And while I hope you hear your own story of love or loss and the lyrics bring you to your own place of nostalgia, I also hope you hear our story. Over the last 3 years, you and I have fought for each other. We've shown up for each other. We've been neon in grey crowds. We've written our own story. We were legends. And that is why it only makes sense that we start chapter two together, you and me. Thank you for everything. My brand new single, Legends, will be available tomorrow. Kels
As well as this, the official audio for the song was uploaded to Kelsea’s YouTube channel earlier today.

It’s hard to believe Kelsey has only been part of the country music world for three years. Throughout this time she has definitely made a name for herself. Kelsea’s first three singles “Love Me Like You Mean It”, “Dibs” and “Peter Pan” all made it to number one on the US Country Airplay Chart. She was the first woman since Wyonna Judd in 1992 to achieve this.
As well as this, Kelsea has won a variety of awards since her debut. These include an Academy of Country Music award and two Radio Disney Music Awards. She is also up for three awards at tonight’s CMT Music Awards, where she will perform “Legends” live for the first time.
