If there’s an unofficial “girls club” in Nashville, KELSEA BALLERINI is a member, and she loves it. She says, quote, “We’re all genuinely friends, and we support and celebrate each other.
“To have legends like Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, and [Lady Antebellum’s] Hillary Scott publicly support me has been crazy. It just makes you feel like you’re doing something right.”
She’s also getting advice. Quote, “Taylor told me, ‘Kelsea, know that cool is overrated. People will always gravitate toward warm and human. That’s always going to win.’
“That was such good advice for me at this stage because sometimes I feel so unpolished. I trip, and I stutter, and that’s who I am. And I think I did try to walk in heels that weren’t mine for a little bit.
“To have someone that is literally the queen of the world be able to speak to what I’m doing and to know I can text her and she’ll give me advice, it’s awesome.”
