As Kelsea Ballerini gets ready to hit the road with Thomas Rhett as part of his Home Team Tour on Thursday (Feb. 23), the “Peter Pan” singer couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the tour.
“I mean, he’s like . . . he’s king right now—he’s killin’ it, and so, I was stoked that he asked me [to tour with him],” Kelsea tells NASH Prep.
Kelsea, who was recently nominated for ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, has toured with some of country’s top stars, including Billy Currington and Rascal Flatts.
“I love going on the road with people that I’m a fan of, like that’s been the coolest thing so far is getting to perform and introduce myself to people that don’t know me yet, or getting to sing my songs for people that do,” Kelsea adds. “And then, going out and watching a show of an artist that I’m a fan of and getting re-inspired. And, I’m a huge fan of him—his wife [Lauren] is everything, and yeah, I’m stoked.”
TR will kick off his 15-date 2017 Home Team Tour in Saginaw, Mich., on Feb. 23 with the help of Kelsea, Russell Dickerson and Ryan Hurd.
