Ballerini has also garnered two GRAMMY® Award nominations, won two ACM Awards, and took home the iHeartRadio Music Awards honor for “Best New Artist.” In 2019, Kelsea received a CMA nomination for “Female Vocalist of the Year” and an American Music Award nomination for “Female Artist Country.” Most recently, she received a 2020 ACM nomination for “Female Artist of the Year.”
This has all paved the way for her third full-length album, kelsea.
