Kelsea Ballerini will make her debut on Saturday Night Live on March 4 as the musical guest. Kansas City Chiefs player Travis Kelce will serve as the night’s host.
Ballerini surprise-dropped a six-song EP earlier this week on Valentine’s Day. The project, titled Rolling Up The Welcome Mat, finds Ballerini grappling with her divorce and the recent transitions in her life.
“I was writing by myself for most of the project, and it was nice to trust myself again,” Ballerini says of the EP. “The only way I’ve been able to handle my life since I was 12 was to write about it. Ironically, I started writing music because my parents got divorced; that was my therapy. Rolling Up The Welcome Mat was how I processed everything. It’s the way I got my feelings out of my body and heart and put them to music, which is the purest way I could’ve handled it.”
Rolling Up The Welcome Mat was set to visuals with a short film that also released on Valentine’s Day. Ballerini wrote and directed the film alongside co-director Patrick Tracy.
