NASHVILLE, TENN. (January 16, 2019) — Black River Entertainment recording artist Kelsea Ballerini releases Spotify Singles including her current chart-rising hit, “Miss Me More” and a new take on Shawn Mendes’ pop smash, “Lost In Japan.” Recorded in Nashville, TN at Sound Stage Studios, the Spotify Singles are available now - listen here.

“When Shawn’s record came out, “Lost In Japan” immediately was my favorite,” said Ballerini. “I love the soft, flirty nature of the lyrics and thought it would be fun to put a stripped, country feel to it.”

Tracking as her fastest rising single to-date, the GRAMMY nominee’s “Miss Me More” has already entered the Top 25 after only 11 weeks on the Country radio charts and has earned over 50 million streams globally. Recently performed on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, The Voice, and the 52nd CMA Awards, “Miss Me More” is featured on the country star’s sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, which also just received a nomination for Best Country Album at the 61stGRAMMY Awards.

Next week, Ballerini hits the road with Kelly Clarkson to kick off Clarkson’s MEANING OF LIFE TOUR beginning on Jan. 24 in Oakland, CA. Headlining her first-ever arena tour, Ballerini will also launch THE MISS ME MORE TOUR on April 11 in Salisbury, MD.

Two-time GRAMMY nominee Kelsea Ballerini is the only female artist in Country music history, including female duos and groups, to go No. 1 with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album. Since achieving that feat with the release of her gold-certified breakout album, The First Time, the award-winning songwriter/artist has continued to build on that success with multiple platinum-certified, No. 1 hits including, “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs,” and “Peter Pan.” Recently receiving a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album, her sophomore album, Unapologetically includes No. 1 hit “Legends,” and current single “Miss Me More,” as a part of the original 12-track compilation all written or co-written by Ballerini. With over 50 million streams globally, “Miss Me More” is tracking as the Country star’s fastest rising single to-date and has already entered the Top 30 after only 10 weeks on the Country radio charts. The newly released Unapologetically (Deluxe Edition) includes four new tracks including her collaboration with The Chainsmokers, “This Feeling,” which they performed during the 2018 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Kicking off the New Year, Ballerini joins Kelly Clarkson on her MEANING OF LIFE TOUR. The Black River Entertainment artist will then break out on her own for her first-ever headline arena tour – THE MISS ME MORE TOUR – with Brett Young (plus special guest Brandon Ratcliff) this spring.
