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.

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

Every day, without exception, I find a number of “treats” in my daily dose of email. These funnies, and other pertinent information, are sent to me by a myriad of “Internet Buddies” who I repay by sending out some of the funniest that I collect. Think of it as sort of a “co-op” for my readers to enjoy. When The Saturday Funnies began last summer, it was what I still think is ... (click for more)
