Kelsea Ballerini unveils heart-melting new single “Legends” out June 7

Artist: Kelsea Ballerini
Single: Legends:
Writers: Kelsea Ballerini, Hillary Lindsey and Forest Whitehead.
Label: Black River Entertainment


When I wrote this song, I knew it was the beginning of the next chapter. And while I hope you hear your own story of love or loss and the lyrics bring you to your own place of nostalgia, I also hope you hear our story. Over the last 3 years, you and I have fought for each other. We've shown up for each other. We've been neon in grey crowds. We've written our own story. We were legends. And that is why it only makes sense that we start chapter two together, you and me. Thank you for everything. - Instagram

Country sweetheart and Black River Entertainment artist Kelsea Ballerini has been counting down the days to the release of her new single, “Legends,” the first taste of her highly anticipated second album.
Delivered to Country radio Weds June 7, 2017, “Legends” is available today on all digital streaming and sales platforms.

Debut #3 US Country iTunes (#15 all genres)
Debut #2 UK Country iTunes (#177 all genres)


Lyrics:
We were golden, we were fire, we were magic
Yeah and they all knew our names all over town
We had it made in the middle of the madness
We were neon in a grey cloud

Yeah, we wrote our own story
Full of blood sweat and heartbeats
We didn’t do it for the fame or the glory
But we went down in history

Yeah we were legends
Loving you baby it was Heaven
What everyone wondered we’d never question
Close our eyes and took on the world together
Do you remember?
We were crazy
Tragic and epic and so amazing
I’ll always wear the crown that you gave me
We will always stay lost in forever
And they’ll remember
We were legends

A heart-melting anthem of storybook love, “Legends” is Ballerini’s tale of a “crazy, tragic, epic” romance that will go down in history and live on forever in her heart. Feeling like a spiritual successor to the fantasy-themed PLATINUM-certified #1, “Peter Pan,” the track begins with a delicate piano and vocal before swelling to truly inspirational scale. 
“'Legends’ is one of the first songs I wrote for the record and every time I’ve listened to it, I find a different meaning," Ballerini shares. "It brings me back to the heartbreak I wrote it from, it makes me think of my fans and the journey we’ve shared, and now I sing it from the perspective of a legendary love story. I hope everyone hears something in it that brings them to a place of nostalgia and is as excited as I am to begin this next chapter together.”

Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey, “Legends” was co-written by Ballerini with Whitehead and Hillary Lindsey. Ballerini expressed her excitement over the track by personally sharing the stylish cover art across her social media platforms Tuesday night (June 6). With eyes fixed ahead, she stands poised with bold confidence and easy elegance as her own legend unfolds, also giving fans a peek at the fashionable tastemaker’s fresh look.
Later on Wednesday (June 7), Ballerini will give her new single a massive TV debut, performing the track live for the first time at the 2017 CMT MUSIC AWARDS. She headed into the night tied for the lead with four nominations, sharing the honor with Keith Urban and Thomas Rhett. The 2017 CMT MUSIC AWARDS air live from Nashville at 8 p.m. ET.

“Legends” is just the beginning of Ballerini’s second chapter, the long-awaited follow up to her historic debut album, THE FIRST TIME. The GOLD-certified, TOP 5 album’s first three singles (the PLATINUM-certified “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Peter Pan,” and GOLD-certified “Dibs”) all went to #1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, a never-before achieved feat by a female artist in Country music. The album’s fourth single – the fun and flirty GOLD-certified “Yeah Boy” – reached #3 at Country radio.

ToC Critic's Pick: (7 June 2017) Kelsea Ballerini‘s new single is a bittersweet love song that marries her pop-friendly sound to a hook that has more bite. The song hurts, even as you’re smiling. Ballerini has promised an album full of songs about an ex-lover and her current love, and “Legends” is found squarely in the middle….

Meanwhile, Ballerini is currently connecting with enormous concert audiences as the featured supporting artist on Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR. She’ll perform in amphitheaters, arenas and on huge festival stages all summer, then visit fans in the U.K., Ireland and Europe in October.
