• Kelsea Ballerini Wants To Focus On The Music, Not On Her Gender

    There's been a lot of buzz about the lack of women on the country music charts, and how Ballerini is bucking that trend. However, she told Billboard magazine that was the farthest thing from her mind.

    When the track landed at No. 1, “Love,” the No. 36 title of 2015 on Country Airplay and the No. 27 hit of the year on Hot Country Songs, ended a long dry spell for No. 1s by female solo acts. In fact, it was the longest drought in the former chart's 25-year history: Carrie Underwood's “Blown Away” had been the last such leader, in October 2012. It had been even longer since a solo female made a No. 1 debut: nine years since Underwood's “Jesus, Take the Wheel” began a six-week reign in January 2006. Still, Ballerini wasn't fazed. “I really didn't even think about that aspect,” she remembers. “I just thought I'd give them a great song. In my opinion, it's all about the song and the performance, not the gender.”

    These are some wise words, especially for someone so young! Ballerini may be just 22 and a relative newcomer to the industry, but she's clearly mature beyond her years and has a good head on her shoulders. With her attitude, we predict she'll do well!
