Kelsea Ballerini’s “hole in the bottle” Kept Her From a Dry January

Kelsea Ballerini’s “hole in the bottle” Kept Her From a Dry January

Last year was rough. Then the holidays. Plus she had a song about wine — “hole in the bottle.”

Kelsea Ballerini needed a little break from finding the hole in the bottle…so she took part in “Dry January.”

Remember the song she made about it…

Now that we are official in February, we checked in with Kelsea to see how she fared, “I am doing more than OK. Yeah, I think my body thanked me for doing that. Over the holidays and through the pandemic promoting a song called ‘Hole in the Bottle’ like, naturally I drank, probably too much wine. So, it was good for me to be good to my body and readjust a little bit.”

But there’s more to this story…it turns out that Kelsea’s dry January, wasn’t completely dry…and she blames “hole in the bottle”, “Well, I will say that it did become a damp January because I had a couple of glasses of wine when ‘hole in the bottle’ went Top 5, so…its y’alls fault! (laugh) No, I’m kidding.”

We’ll take the blame…check out Kelsea’s hit “hole in the bottle” here…

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
