ACM-winning, back-to-back-#1-hit-making country-pop singer/songwriter Kelsea Ballerini joins me backstage at CMC Rocks QLD to experience her first glass of Australian whiskey, and to talk about her favourite album of the moment, Troye Sivan’s debut LP “Blue Neighbourhood”.
She talks about the expectations of a debut album, being a young artist and loving the work of someone younger, not losing her ability to “fan out” and the specificity of Troye’s writing.
Plus, she reveals why ‘Sirens’ was the black sheep of her album, why she drinks but doesn’t write drinking songs, playing bars before she was old enough to get in them, the responsibilities of being a role model, getting recognised off stage in Nashville, writing for album #2 and why some people want to tear down Taylor Swift.
