Kelsea Ballerini has released her new single “Legends", which will be featured off of her upcoming sophomore album.
The ballad was originally written as an observation on lost love, but Ballerini nows views it as a personal message to her fans. "I wrote it from the perspective of a breakup,“ Ballerini said. "Now I'm in such a different place in my life that, to me at least, it's a love song about a love that you look back on that doesn't even necessarily have to end. I hope my fans hear it as a letter to them but also they hear their own love story in it too."
The country sensation co-wrote “Legends" with Hillary Lindsey and Forest Glen Whitehead, who co-produced her debut album The First Time and co-wrote several of its songs including “Yeah Boy" and “Peter Pan." The song's performance debut will come at the CMT Music Awards, where Ballerini is nominated in four categories, including Video of the Year, Performance of the Year, Female Video of the Year and Social Superstar of the Year.
