Song of the Week: “Peter Pan” by Kelsea Ballerini


It’s an exciting time to be Kelsea Ballerini right now!  The “Love Me Like You Mean It” singer found out last week that she’s already won an ACM Award for New Female Artist of the Year and yesterday released what she has said is her, “dream video” for new song “Peter Pan”, the third single off her debut album, The First Time.  The song starts off soft and builds up to the chorus with Ballerini’s voice gaining in strength as she sings “You’re always going to fly away, just because you know you can.  You’re never gonna learn there’s no such place as Neverland.”  If her track record with previous singles is any indication, “Peter Pan” is certain to be a hit with fans and at radio (“Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dib” both hit number one).  Kelsea is set to perform with Nick Jonas at the ACM Awards this Sunday and heads out on tour with Rascal Flatts later this summer for the “Rhythm and Roots” Tour after coming off Billy Currington’s “Summer Forever” Tour.  She’s one busy lady, but don’t think she’s letting all this good news go to her head.  It’s clear to see from her Instagram post after receiving news of her ACM Win that Kelsea is grateful for the success she’s having and thankful for her whole team and all of her fans for helping her get here.
