Sony Music Entertainment UKEarly in her career, Kelsea Ballerini hit the road with Lady Antebellum as their opening act. That experience not only exposed the superstar-in-waiting to a new array of fans, it also forged a lasting bond with the trio, particularly with Hillary Scott.

“She had a surprise party for me at her house for my 21st birthday,” the now-23-year-old Kelsea recalls. “And she’s celebrated my first two number ones with me; I was out of town for my third.”

“I mean, she’s always there,” Kelsea goes on. “She’s always there to encourage me and uplift me. She’s a very special human being.”

Kelsea admits she’s pretty excited to kick off the You Look Good World Tour this Friday with Hillary, Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood.

“I’m friends with all of them… and our bands are friends,” she says. “So it’s gonna be like a reunion for a whole summer, which is gonna be really fun.”

The “Peter Pan” hitmaker adds that she’s obsessed with Lady A’s horn-fueled top-15 hit “You Look Good.”

Brett Young rounds out the bill for the trek that kicks off Friday in Bakersfield, California.

By Music News Group

ABC/Paula LoboJason Aldean‘s new music video for “They Don’t Know” is a mini tour documentary of his new trek that bears the same name — with some muddin’, ATVs and tractors thrown in.

“We’re just getting back out on the road for summer, and after seeing the crowd sing this song back to me the first couple weekends, it reminded me how much the fans relate to it,” Jason says.

“To me, this video represents every person on my team… my family and the fans who come out from all over the place,” he goes on. “It’s because of them I keep getting to sing about the things I know and have lived.”

The ACM Entertainer of the Year’s new logo also figures prominently in the new video. You’ll spot plenty of barns, backdrops and banners that have been tagged with the new symbol. It features Jason’s initials, with the “A” stylized in the shape of his home state of Georgia.

Lauren Alaina is "Doin' Fine," even though she's living a country song

By Music News Group

Mercury NashvilleLauren Alaina is following up her first #1 with one of the most personal songs of her career so far.

With lyrics like “Daddy got sober, Momma got his best friend” based on her parents’ struggles, divorce and remarriages, you might expect “Doin’ Fine” to be a bit of a downer, but that’s not the case.

“‘Doin’ Fine’ is a really special song because it’s uplifting, but really honest at the same time,” Lauren says of the song she co-wrote.

“If you don’t know me and you don’t know that that’s actually what I went through, you would almost think, ‘Oh my gosh, she really tried to write a country song,’ but the truth is, I really live a country song!’” she jokes.

“Doin’ Fine” is the opening track on Lauren’s latest album, Road Less Traveled, which shares its title with her chart-topping hit.
