In her own words, Ballerini explains her excitement about heading home, “How cool to be able to come home to Knoxville and celebrate this next big moment in my life with you! Central High is such a special place for me. I was in the glee club and got to perform in musicals on the same stage where I sang a song I wrote for the very first time," Ballerini says in a statement to PEOPLE, adding, “This city … this high school … really helped shape my life and I can't wait to share my new songs with you."

The “Dibs" singer will be performing singles “Legends" and “Unapologetically" off her sophomore album which shares a title with the latter, Unapologetically. Fans are eagerly anticipating the November 3 release date of the superstars' only second album.
