The double CMA Award nominee (New Artist of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year) also gave a web exclusive of her #1, GOLD-certified smash “Love Me Like You Mean It,” which can be seen here: http://abc.tv/1iOvEOt.

Both “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs” are featured on her debut album THE FIRST TIME (Black River Entertainment), co-produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey, which landed Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Released to rave reviews, Billboard acclaimed “Her frankness and honesty are rooted in country’s long tradition of storytelling, a tradition that she deftly adapts to both 21st century and timeless concerns.”

Ballerini launched to stardom with the release of her #1, GOLD-certified debut "Love Me Like You Mean It" and current chart-rising single “Dibs.” Abuzz with shout-outs from superstars Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town, she is the first solo female artist in nine years to hit #1 with her debut country single and one of only 11 women to have ever hit the top of the charts with a debut. She has been scoring a number of recent high-profile media appearances, including People Magazine naming her “The Country Sweetheart” in their elite “Ones to Watch” portfolio, Billboard Magazine touting her as “Country’s Next Queen,” Rolling Stone proclaiming her “Nashville It Girl” and CMT featuring her as one of the Next Women of Country. 

After spending the summer opening select shows for Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, she is currently on Dan + Shay’s JUST THE RIGHT KIND OF CRAZY TOUR.
