First time Grammy-nominee Kelsea Ballerini visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday to perform her latest single “Yeah Boy.”
Ballerini not only broke into the scene this past year, but impressively broke records as well. The “Peter Pan” hitmaker became the first female artist in country music history, including duos and groups, to have launched three consecutive No. 1 hits from her debut album.
The 23-year-old has also just been added to the jaw-dropping Grammy lineup set to perform this weekend. She will join fellow country stars Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Maren Morris for music’s biggest night.
“To me, every awards show is incredible whether it’s industry-voted or fan-voted. All of it’s incredible. But the Grammys is the one. It’s top-tier. It’s the pinnacle,” the songstress told E! News when asked about her nomination. “And just to be thought of as one of the five best new artists of this year is so flattering and so incredible and I’m super honored.” Ballerini is up for Best New Artist against Morris, The Chainsmokers, Chance the Rapper and Anderson Paak.
The Grammys will air live this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT on CBS.
