Today (June 7), Kelsea Ballerini released the first single, “Legends,” from her upcoming sophomore album.
Co-penned by Kelsea, Glen Whitehead and Hillary Lindsey, “Legends” follows a string of hits from Kelsea’s debut album, The First Time, including “Love Me Like You Mean It” (No. 1), “Dibs” (No. 1), “Peter Pan” (No. 1) and “Yeah Boy” (No. 3).
“’Legends’ is one of the first songs I wrote for the record and every time I’ve listened to it, I find a different meaning,” says Kelsea. “It brings me back to the heartbreak I wrote it from, it makes me think of my fans and the journey we’ve shared, and now I sing it from the perspective of a legendary love story. I hope everyone hears something in it that brings them to a place of nostalgia and is as excited as I am to begin this next chapter together.”
Tonight, Kelsea will give her new single a massive TV debut, performing the track live for the first time at the 2017 CMT Music Awards.
