Kelsea Ballerini Announces Poetry Collection

Two-time GRAMMY Award-nominated multiplatinum songwriter, producer and ACM Female Vocalist of the Year nominee Kelsea Ballerini announces her debut poetry collection, Feel Your Way Through, available at retailers and online on November 16, 2021. It will be published as a Ballantine Hardcover by Ballantine an imprint of Random House. The collection is available for pre-order now HERE. The jacket image, painted by Kelsea, was also revealed and can be downloaded HERE.

A born storyteller, lyricist, and wordsmith, Ballerini applies the keen intuition, delicate introspection, and raw honesty that turned her into a superstar to this candid collection of poems. She opens up about everything from family dynamics, relationships, and body image to confidence, self-love, sexuality, and the lessons of youth she’s picked up along the way. As always, she speaks straight from the heart.

About Feel Your Way Through, she shared, “I’ve realized that some feelings can’t be turned into a song, so I’ve started writing poems. Just like my songs, they talk about what it’s like to be twenty-something trying to navigate a wildly beautiful and broken world.”

It continues a prolific year for Ballerini. She recently teamed up with US alt-pop trio LANY for “I QUIT DRINKING.” The song has quickly amassed over 11 million streams in its first 2 weeks of availability and shot to #2 on the iTunes pop songs chart upon release. Inciting critical applause, People described the debut CMT Awards performance as “swept up in a storm of emotion” (see the performance HERE).

Ballerini’s current single at country radio, “half of my hometown (feat. Kenny Chesney)” has more than 47-Million world-wide streams to date and had its television performance debut on the Academy of Country Music Awards (click HERE). Kelsea recently shared the music video, which is an ode to her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee.

As announced earlier this month, Ballerini is joining the Jonas Brothers on The Remember This Tour later this summer. For additional information and tour dates, please visit kelseaballerini.com.
