Kelsea Ballerini says she has three role models

“The people that I look up to the most in country are Shania Twain, Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum and Taylor Swift. Those were my three that I really studied. To not only have them acknowledge what I do, but literally turn around and reach out their hand to me and be like, ‘Hey, come sing with me onstage,’ or ‘I’m going to post about your album because I want you to work,’ to have those moments where people that I learned from and look up to and think are not only talented but graceful do that, it makes you feel like you’re doing something right.”
