Kelsea Ballerini is unapologetically welcoming fans into her whirlwind world of loss, life, and love, as the Unapolgetically Tour visits the Tivoli Theatre on Feb. 9 at 8 p.m.  Tickets start at $53 and are available here. 

Review for Kelsea Ballerini: 

Following the much-anticipated launch of her sophomore album, Unapologetically continues to garner overwhelming support with several illustrious outlets spotlighting the poignant project on their reputable year-end lists of 2017, including The New York Times’ “The Best Albums of 2017,” Billboard Magazine’s “The 10 Best Country Albums of 2017: Critics’ Picks;” and Rolling Stone Country’s “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2017.” BuzzFeed also gave a genre-blurring nod to the self-assured knockout “Get Over Yourself” in “The Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2017.”  

Capping a career-defining year of high-caliber recognition, critics have applauded Ballerini’s fearless evolution as both an artist and songwriter alike with Unapologetically; 

The intimate exposé is the bold thematic successor to Ballerini’s history-making gold-certified The First Time - which distinguished her as the only female artist in Country music history, including female duos and groups, to impressively achieve three consecutive #1 smashes from a debut album. Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey – with Shane McAnally, Lindsay Rimes, and Jimmy Robbins on select tracks – Unapologetically encompasses 12 tracks all written or co-written by the prized songwriter. 

Debuting at #3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart (#7 All-Genre) and #1 in Australia and the UK, Top 10 lead single “Legends” continues to climb the charts while the heart-wrenching adjoining music video has captured over 9.6 million viewers (and counting) with its cinematic tale of a “crazy, tragic, and epic” love. Breakout track “Miss Me More” rocketed to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Country Songs chart directly upon release. 

The Unapologetically Tour features special guest and breakout artist Walker Hayes, in addition to rising star Bailey Bryan for a special one-night-only appearance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Valentine’s Day. VIP Experiences are also available via https://kelseaballerini.com/events.

Refuting Racism

In an opinion piece, 5/18/18, Rev. Josh Woodrow referred to me and my fellow School Board member, Joe Smith, as racists and white supremacists because we spoke out against busing. I have never met or spoken with Rev. Woodrow so he knows nothing about me. The reverend obviously knows nothing about Joe Smith either. Seems one of the reverend’s hobbies is “brewing beer”. Maybe, ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: ‘Don’t Invent, Discover!’

When Randy Boyd stood in front of more than 75 black ministers in Memphis on Tuesday, the ever-dynamic “doer of deeds” told the pastors an exciting story.

Boyd then met with some representatives ... (click for more)
