Kelsea Ballerini has announced the release date of her sophomore project, Unapologetically, which will drop right before CMA week on Nov. 3. The leadoff track from the project, “Legends” is already skyrocketing up the charts, reaching the Top 15 on the iTunes all-genre charts within the first 12 hours of its release. The tune was co-written by Ballerini along with Hillary Lindsey and Forest Glen Whitehead, who also serves as producer alongside Jason Massey.

The album is the followup to the singer-songwriter’s debut CD The First Time, which yielded three consecutive platinum and gold No. 1 singles “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs” and “Peter Pan.” The project’s fourth single, “Yeah Boy,” rose to No. 3 on the charts and was certified gold.

She’ll perform on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight at 10:35 p.m. CT on NBC.
