Taking the Country radio charts by storm, Kelsea Ballerini’s smash “Love Me Like You Mean It” soared to the Top 5 this week on the Mediabase Country Chart and is quickly climbing.
“As a new artist releasing a first single, all you want is for it to be heard, to make a good first impression,” shares Ballerini. “The fact that country radio is embracing it, is more than I could ask for. I want to hug everyone.”
The sassy, top-selling song written by Ballerini, Whitehead, Kerr and Carpenter is featured on her debut album THE FIRST TIME, produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey. Praised by ROLLING STONE as one of the “10 Artists You Need To Know” from all genres, her buzzed-about album debuted Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.
“Love Me Like You Mean It” earned Ballerini her first award nod and she will vie for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the 2015 CMT Music Awards airing live on CMT June 10 at 8/7 CT. Fans can vote now at http://www.cmt.com/cmt-music-awards/vote/breakthrough-video-of-the-year.jhtml.
