Kelsea Ballerini is ‘Writing an Album’ in Beautiful New Photos

by Taylor Cunningham

Is Kelsea Ballerini working on a new album? After looking at her most recent social media post, it seems she is.

The last time we heard new lyrics by the Peter Pan songstress was in 2020 when she released two albums—one named Kelsea and one named Ballerini. It makes sense that she wanted to revel in the fame of those albums before getting back in the recording studio. The record duo was nominated for multiple awards, and her single Hole in the Bottle from Kelsea hit number one on the country charts.

But according to her latest Instagram post, Kelsea is back at it. She’s locked herself inside a downtown hotel room, and she’s putting together a new bunch of future chart-toppers.

Alongside four beautifully artistic photos, Kelsea Ballerini simply captioned, “writing an album in a hotel room.” In the pictures, we see Ballerini feeling her new music deep in her soul as she sits on a window sill that overlooks downtown. She’s wearing her headphones and singing into a microphone, and she looks like she’s enjoying the process.

Her last picture left us a little puzzled though. It’s an almost empty red solo cup with some type of orange drink inside. Is it Gatorade? A cocktail? Maybe we’re reading into it and she’s just really thirsty. What we do know is that whatever Kelsea touches turns to gold. Or in the case of her debut album, The First Time, platinum. So we can’t wait to hear what she’s working on now.

Kelsea Ballerini Fulfills Childhood Dream After Announcing Upcoming Tour With the Jonas Brothers

As if six number one songs and being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry wasn’t dreamy enough, Kelsea is currently fulfilling another dream. She’s touring with the Jonas Brothers.

In May, Kelsea announced in an Instagram post that she’s living her teenage fantasy by opening for the Jonas brother during their fall tour.

The video shows her singing an acoustic version of the Jonas Brother hit Burning Up. And when she’s done, she says, “So, uh, I’ll see you guys on the road.” Next to her video, she wrote, “sooo I’ll see y’all on TOUR with the JONAS BROTHERS this fall.”

Kelsea has apparently been trying to meet the singing sibling trio since 2008. “It only took 12 years to win the JoBro meet and greet,” she wrote in another Instagram post. Along with a picture of her posing with the guys, Kelsea added a video of herself submitting to a “meet the Jonas brothers” contest. She didn’t win the chance to meet them all those years ago. But we’d say she won big by becoming just as successful as the SOS singers and joining them on stage over a decade later.
