We've known for years that Kelsea Ballerini is an incredible storyteller. As a country artist, she's proven her skills as a songwriter having written numerous popular songs on country radio including "Half of My Hometown" and "Peter Pan." But now the talented vocalist has announced that she will be trying her hand at poetry by releasing her own collection of poems. Her new book of poetry called Feel Your Way Through is set for release this Fall through Ballantine Books, which is an imprint of Random House.

"I've realized that some feelings can't be turned into a song, so I've started writing poems," Ballerini shared.

"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 shared on social media that her debut poetry collection will be incredibly personal and she's excited for everyone to read her heartfelt words.

"I've used up all my words writing it so for now to keep it simple... I have spilled twenty-seven years of heart, perspectives, and guts into my debut book of poetry, Feel Your Way Through. Out on November 16th and is available for preorder now. 🌸"

It's been a busy year for the singer-songwriter. In addition to getting a book of poetry published, she appeared as a guest coach for Kelly Clarkson on The Voice, and will soon be joining The Jonas Brothers on the road for the Remember This Tour. The Grammy Award nominee was also recently awarded CMT Performance of the Year for "The Other Girl" (with Halsey).
