Kelsea Ballerini came to slay with her look at the 2021 Country Music Association Awards! The 28-year-old walked the red carpet looking absolutely incredible. She wore a Valdrin Sahiti white dress with corset-style midsection and long sleeves. The skirt had a thigh-high slit, which allowed Kelsea to show some major leg and reveal her clear heels. To go with her stunning outfit, Kelsea had her hair styled in in a low, sleek bun, with a part to the side. Her look was complete with dark eye makeup and a pale pink lip. The star was styled by celebrity makeup artist and hairstylist Kelsey Deenihan using Nexxus. Plus, she also posed with her hubby, Morgan Evans, on the red carpet.
Kelsea is attending the CMA Awards as a presenter, but on the morning of the show, she was surprised with some exciting news — she won TWO CMA Awards! The winners in the Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year categories were announced on Good Morning America on the morning of Nov. 10. Kelsea and Kenny Chesney took home wins in both categories for their collaboration on “Half of My Hometown,” which appeared on Kelsea’s 2020 album Kelsea.
This was the first time Kelsea ever won an award at the CMAs. She was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year in 2015 and 2016, and received Female Vocalist of the Year nominations in 2017, 2018 and 2019, as well. However, she never secured a win until now! Earlier this year, Kelsea also took home the CMT Music Award for CMT Performance of the Year for her collaboration with Halsey on “The Other Girl” at the CMT Awards in 2020.
Kelsea recently wrapped up a tour with the Jonas Brothers, which took her across the United States from August until the beginning of November. Later this month, she’ll be releasing her first book of poetry, Feel Your Way Through, as well. Kelsea is also currently in the midst of celebrating the success of her song “I Quit Drinking” with LANY, which has been climbing up the charts.
