Kelsea Ballerini Opened Up About the Country Music World Welcoming More of A Genre-Blending
During a December 2020 interview with Billboard, Kelsea Ballerini opened up about how the country music world is welcoming more of a genre-blending in terms of new music and sound. “It goes in waves, just like every trend in music,” Ballerini explained. She did say that she definitely feels like over the past five years there have been massive crossover hits that brought a new audience to the country music world.
“There will always be ‘purists’ that only want to hear certain kinds of country music, and I respect that, but I also think that country music’s always been evolving,” Kelsea Ballerini remarked. She then stated that a lot of women that she grew up listening to are now considered the pillars of the industry and are the people that were pioneering the sound.
Kelsea Ballerini also opened up about how the pandemic has changed the way she communicates with her fans. “It’s the only way that I can connect with people,” Ballerini stated regarding social media. “So yeah, it’s really forced me to go there and show what I’m doing. I’m an over-sharer.”
“I really do put it all out there. I’m on there all the time,” Kelsea continued. “It’s my way of seeing what people are living. What people are going. Seeing if anyone’s having a hard day.”
Kelsea Ballerini further commented that she knows the people who have shown up to shows for six years. “To be able to really stick with people like that is nice. I also think that as a fan, I invest in the artist. And that’s why I love the music.”
In regards to working with fellow country singer Shania Twain on the Hole in the Bottle remix, Kelsea Ballerini said Twain actually reached out about doing something together. “We spent a couple of months going back and forth on song ideas. But it wasn’t until I watched the Hole in the Bottle music video that I was like, ‘Wait a second. I idolize this woman.’ And I tip my hat to her in this music video.’”
