Kelsea Ballerini closes out CMA Music Festival with another Number One hit under her belt with "Miss Me More." We caught up with Kelsea backstage during CMA Fest over the weekend where she contemplated topping the charts this week. ["I love this song, and honestly, I'd be really proud if it went Number One. To be a female on country radio right now means a lot to me. There are two females in the Top 10, which is great. Tenille Townes and Carly Pearce and Runaway June are on the chart they're all incredible and I'm really excited that females are getting that spotlight right now . . . and Number Ones are cool."] SOUNDCUE (:21 OC: . . . Ones are cool.)
Kelsea shared the chart-topping news on social media yesterday (Sunday, June 9th) writing, "ITS OFFICIAL!!!!! Miss Me More is the #1 song this week at country radio. Wow wow wow. Just thank you. So much. Grateful that this message got the megaphone of the radio and hope it made you feel powerful and worth fighting for."
Kelsea shares CMA Fest hosting duties again this year with Thomas Rhett. The three-hour ABC-TV special airs on August 4th at 8 p.m. ET.
