Kelsea Ballerini is ready to be one of what she calls the “cool kids” at this year’s CMA Awards. She’s nominated in two categories — Female Vocalist and New Artist of the Year, in addition to performing during the live broadcast.
Kelsea reminisced on how she and her mom used to spend their time watching the CMA Awards. She said, “My mom and I used to watch the CMA’s every year. We would get a big fruit and cheese spread going on. Every time they would do the five nominations, we would pause the TV and guess who was going to win.”
This time, Kelsea gets to attend the CMA’s with her nominations and is looking forward to “putting on the big dress and show up and sit with the cool kids.” She’s just happy to be there no matter what way it goes.
