Review for Kelsea Ballerini: 

Dubbed “Country’s Next Queen” by Billboard, Kelsea Ballerini continues to blaze her own trail to superstardom as she is the only female artist in country music history, including female duos and groups, to go #1 with her first three consecutive singles from a debut album. 

Her critically acclaimed Gold-certified stunner, The First Time, has Kelsea's credit behind every song, as it radiates positivity while exploring all facets of the human experience. She is a bonafide poet and The First Time reflects just that.
