Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey will team for an upcoming episode of CMT Crossroads, which will be taped during an open-to-the-public performance at Nashville’s Ascend Amphitheater on Friday, Oct. 11. The episode will premiere on CMT in early 2020.
“I feel so fortunate to have a friend like Kelsea. She is a spectacular talent and an even better human being. It’s been an honor to watch from the sidelines as she has trailblazed country music the past few years. Her songs make me laugh and cry and put every single window down in the car,” said Halsey. “The first stage Kelsea and I ever shared together was a 3 foot karaoke dance floor right in Nashville. We’ve sang together in my living room, in her kitchen, in the back seat of cars in drive through lines late at night. And this time we get to get on a real stage, one of the most iconic stages in history, and do the thing we love the most in front of a city that is so dear to both of us.”
“From hearing ‘Colors’ for the first time years ago to her playing the first cut of ‘Without Me’ in my living room last year, I’ve always been a superfan of Halsey. Her songwriting has a way of painting the most beautiful pictures and telling the most emotional of stories, and after becoming fast friends over wine and karaoke nights, I can’t think of anyone I’d rather share the CMT Crossroads stage with. We’re going to bring a little pop, a little country, a big love of songwriting, and no doubt some sass to Nashville next week,” shared Ballerini.
The all-ages show will be general admission; ticketing details to be released in the days prior to the event. For more information, visit Crossroads.CMT.com.
Ballerini recently released her new single, “homecoming queen?,” while Halsey’s “Without Me” topped the Hot 100 for two weeks earlier this year.
