Kelsea Ballerini Watches Songwriters Watch Bon Jovi

"I Love Music," She Says

It sounds like Kelsea Ballerini had the best view of the show at Saturday night’s (Feb. 18) Bon Jovi concert in Nashville,

She was standing with two of country music’s most prolific songwriters and had the chance to watch them as they were watching the rock band sing the song they wrote with frontman Jon Bon Jovi. That was a lot to take in — for everyone — and Ballerini’s conclusion on Twitter was simple.

She was with Ashley Gorley (“Dirty Laundry,” “Heartbeat,” “You Should Be Here,” “Middle of a Memory,” “T-Shirt,” “Kick the Dust Up” and more) and Chris DeStefano (“From the Ground Up,” “Smoke Break,” “Something in the Water,” “Somethin’ Bad,” “That’s My Kind of Night,” and more) at Bridgestone Arena.

The song Ballerini was talking about in her tweet was “Roller Coaster,” off Bon Jovi’s latest album This House Is Not for Sale. But the songwriting trio also collaborated on a bonus track titled “All Hail the King.”
