Expanded Press Release
Black River Entertainment’s Kelsea Ballerini made her wildly successful UK debut last week when she performed a SOLD OUT headlining concert at London’s hip UNDER THE BRIDGE nightclub, charmed viewers during several TV appearances and even popped in to chat with Steve Wright at BBC Radio 2 (18 May which will be broadcast Tuesday May 23 BBC Page), further showing strong international appeal that will propel the star toward new horizons this year.

Having already captured American hearts with her graceful, sincere and fun-loving brand of modern country music, Sony Music Commercial Group in conjunction with Black River Entertainment hosted the record-breaking singer/songwriter in support of the UK release of her critically acclaimed debut album THE FIRST TIME. This special UK edition features four bonus acoustic tracks along with her lead UK single, “XO” (Ballerini / Gravitt / O’Brien), now spinning on BBC Radio 2.

Kicking the week off with a packed showcase in front of the UK’s finest in media, streaming, television and radio (May 9), Ballerini was then greeted by roaring fans at UNDER THE BRIDGE (May 11) who sang along to every word of historic #1 hits like the deeply moving ballad “Peter Pan,” uptempo jams “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs,” and her fun-and-flirty Top 5 single “Yeah Boy.” Ballerini’s concert experience was described by local media as “electric” and a hint of big things to come.

“Kelsea rocked Under the Bridge last night and now she’s tested the waters here in the UK ... With a warm stage presence, an engaging personality and a set list full of great songs, Kelsea showed the UK why she’s one of the biggest new artists in Country music.”  Entertainment Focus | Read the full review here:  

For ‘First Time’, she wandered into the crowd and delivered a very vulnerable and beautiful acoustic performance, surrounded by her adoring fans. Her vocal ability was unquestionable and her confidence and extremely warm personality was clear for everyone to see.....A super night watching an artist destined for big things, both in the US and here in the UK where I’m sure her fan base will grow rapidly. One of those ‘I was there’ shows that we might look back on with pride in years to come. - Your Life In A Song | Read the full review here:
