Kelsea Ballerini Embarks on First Arena Tour With Support From Brett Young: “I Feel Like We’re a Good Dynamic Duo”

Kelsea Ballerini has had an action-packed week.

Not only did the Tennessee native get inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on April 16, but Kelsea also embarked on her first headlining arena tour, which kicked off on April 11 with support from Brett Young.

“I grew up going to arena shows, and I feel like that’s always kind of been where I want to live and work up to—and create that world for people to step into for a couple of hours,” says Kelsea. “Brett Young is out with me, and I keep saying, ‘The girls are gonna come for him and stay for me, hopefully.’ I feel like we’re a good dynamic duo.”

The “dynamic duo” got to know each other as openers on Lady Antebellum’s You Look Good Tour in 2017.

“We did something like 56 dates on Lady Antebellum’s tour, and so we got to spend a lot of time together and really hit it off,” says Brett. “She’s just such a great person, such a great artist, and now to have the opportunity to go out together, I think it’s a great, great match-up. I think we have a lot of similar fans and we just enjoy each other’s company, and so I’m a big fan of hers and am looking forward to spending the time.”
