Country-pop breakout, Kelsea Ballerini, has finally released the first single off of her upcoming sophomore album. “Legends,” a Taylor Swift Fearless –esque reflection on past love, is bound to become one of this summer’s country radio hits.
Ballerini sat down with Rolling Stone Country to share the inspiration behind the song: “I wrote it from the perspective of a breakup. Now I’m in such a different place in my life that, to me at least, it’s a love song about a love that you look back on that doesn’t even necessarily have to end. I hope my fans hear it as a letter to them but also they hear their own love story in it too.”
The last year and a half has put Ballerini on the map, with four songs from her debut album, The First Time, topping the Billboard Country charts (“Peter Pan,” “Dibs,” “Love Me Like You Mean It,” and “Yeah Boy”). Given its catchy sing along chorus, I expect we’ll be seeing “Legends” take a similar path in the next coming weeks, potentially adding a fifth number 1 to Ballerini’s roster.
The singer-songwriter sensation is currently on tour with Lady Antebellum, and her newest album is expected to drop sometime this year.
