On the heels of her first No. 1 song, Black River Entertainment artist Kelsea Ballerini has notched her first Gold single. Her debut chart-topper “Love Me Like You Mean It” has been certified Gold by the RIAA for sales and streams of more than 500,000 in the United States.

While Ballerini might be basking in her newfound success, she isn’t slowing down. Her follow-up single, “Dibs,” has sold more than 66,000 units and is impacting country radio. The tune was co-written by Ballerini along with Josh Kerr, Ryan Griffin and Jason Duke.

Ballerini’s tour schedule is packed with festivals, headlining club dates, and slots opening for Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban. She will join Dan+Shay‘s Just The Right Kind of Crazy Tour this fall.
