Kelsea Ballerini was visibly blown away at the news that she’d won the ACM’s New Female Vocalist of the year. And with good reason, this is Kelsea’s first ACM win.
She said, “Yesterday, I got a phone call from my friend Bob Romeo who let me know that I won my first ACM award for New Female artist. I don’t even know what to say, so for now I will just say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. For making not only my dreams come true, but for making all of the people around me who work so hard have so many beautiful moments to celebrate. Here is my reaction to the call. Keeping it calm, as always.”
The news comes in a big week for Kelsea, as she releases her newest single, “Peter Pan“.
Her first two singles, “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs” both earned number one status on Billboard charts.
Kelsea is also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. She will be performing at the ACM Awards with Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Luke Bryan, Dolly Parton and others.
The 51st ACMs will air Sunday April 3 on CBS at 8 PM ET/ delayed PT live from MGM Grand Garden Arena.
