The past several months of rising star Kelsea Ballerini’s life have been filled with first times: her first single, first radio play, first EP, first Opry appearance, and so much more. It’s no wonder that the Country Music’s #CMchat One to Watch decided to name her debut full-length album The First Time.
With The First Time releasing on May 19th, Kelsea has decided to throw her fans a bone and provide some preliminary information regarding the album, recently hitting social media with the cover art and track listing for her highly anticipated offering. Fans who have been following Kelsea since her “Love Me Like You Mean It” introduction will be thrilled to see some of their favorites making the cut, including the brilliantly written “Peter Pan” and “Stilettos.”
And the cover art, well, it’s simply stunning like the artist behind the music.
The twelve-track list for Kelsea Ballerini’s The First Time is as follows:
1. XO (Ballerini, Gravitt, O’Brien)
2. Peter Pan (Ballerini, Whitehead, Lee)
3. Love Me Like You Mean It (Ballerini, Whitehead, Kerr, Carpenter)
4. Square Pegs (Ballerini, Osborne, Stepakoff)
