It’s easy to be positive when life is fun, says Kelsea Ballerini. (Sounds like a new song in the making.) And why not, life is fun for Ballerini. The 21-year-old will be featured on the TV special American Country Countdown’s Top 10 Stories of 2015. This year she released her smash hit debut album, First Time. And the enchanting young singer has been crossing other big career goals off her list in 2015, including performing at the Grand Ole Opry.
Ballerini moved from Knoxville to Nashville to pursue her music career when she was just 15. Now 21, Ballerini says her pinnacle goal is “to do a big bells and whistles arena tour one day.” She added with a smile, “With pyro and hydraulic lifts and flying. I just want to do the whole shebang. That’s what I’m working towards.” Fans are no doubt already dreaming of buying tix for this one. American Country Countdown’s Top 10 Stories of 2015 airs December 17 at 8pm on Fox.
