“Peter Pan” Declares This Is Kelsea Ballerini’s Week

Florida Georgia Line’s Dig Your Roots Continues as Top Country Album

Break out the cherry bombs and Roman candles — Kelsea Ballerini is pure fireworks this week as “Peter Pan” becomes her third consecutive No. 1 single. That’s a record in country music for a female act’s debut album, even when you include duos and groups.

More remarkable still, “Peter Pan” tops not only Billboard’s country airplay chart — this column’s regular standard of measurement — it also crowns the trade magazine’s country singles listing.

And let us not forget to mention that Ballerini achieved this bell-ringing success on her 23rd birthday — and that she co-wrote the song. Whether this convergence of miracles also qualifies her for sainthood, we’ll just have to wait and see.

For those who track such things, it took “Peter Pan” 26 weeks to fly to the summit.
