There probably aren't many people in the country music world having a better year than Kelsea Ballerini. The "Peter Pan" singer is currently touring with Keith Urban on his Graffiti U Tour. She's joining singing competition The Voice for their inaugural web series The Comeback Stage. She's confidently spoken out against sexism in the country music industry. She recently released a clever video for "I Hate Love Songs" She was nominated for a People's Choice Award for Country Artist of 2018 and a CMA award for Female Vocalist of the Year. Now she can cross one more thing off her bucket list: touring with Kelly Clarkson.
