Kelsea Ballerini Plots Headlining 2018 Unapologetically Tour

“I couldn't make this record for you & not share it with you in person."

After spending the weekend playing a special homecoming show at her alma mater in Knoxville, TN, Kelsea Ballerini announced a 2018 headlining tour. Titled after her upcoming sophomore album, Unapologetically, the tour will feature Walker Hayes on all tour stops, as well as Bailey Bryan at the iconic Ryman Auditorium tour stop. The 16-show tour kicks off on February 8th in Birmingham, AL, and concludes at her April 27th performance at Stagecoach Festival in California.

Unapologetically, due out this Friday (11/3), features Ballerini's current single, “Legends," co-written with Hillary Lindsey and Forest Glen Whitehead.

The album also includes the title track, “Unapologetically," and a sassy jam track, “Miss Me More." Pre-order the album now to hear these four songs before Friday's release.
