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.

Drink Up, Chattanooga

I attended the meeting to discuss the placement of the sewage treatment plant at the Cambridge Center in Ooltewah today. My problem with the meeting (aka) dog and pony show, is that the meeting started out with the agenda of the Ooltewah Community Council.  After living in this area for 45+ years I have never heard of this group.  I would like for someone to answer ...

Roy Exum: Lee In A Landslide

The first time I met Bill Lee, the guy who is triggering a huge turnout of Tennessee voters across the state, I instantly liked him, admired him, and must have told a dozen friends that day we have the most exciting guy going to the Governor’s Mansion we’ve ever had. The best reason is because Bill Lee is real. His opponent, Karl Dean, is a Democrat and a longtime politician. Go ... (click for more)
