Kelsea Ballerini Announces Third Leg of Heartfirst Tour

Kelsea Ballerini will appear on Saturday Night Live this Saturday.

Kelsea Ballerini just released her pivotal new EP "Rolling Up the Welcome Mat" and its accompanying short film that she wrote and directed. The East Tennessee native also just finished her UK tour and is preparing to appear on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend - a rare opportunity for country artists and her first time on the show. However, she isn't slowing down. Ballerini announced the third leg of her HEARTFIRST Tour on Thursday, which will launch in June and include special guest Georgia Webster.

The third leg of the tour includes 10 new shows and kicks off June 16 at the Santa Barbara Bowl. Routing will sweep through cities in the Western United States, and conclude on July 1 at Arizona Financial Theatre in Phoenix, AZ.

"Third time’s a charm?! 💛" Ballerini wrote on the tour announcement on social media and encouraged people to sign up for the presale at

The presale begins 10 a.m. local time on Tuesday, March 7 for all shows except the Highland, California presale that will start at 10 a.m. same the next day. The Spotify pre-sale follows at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8. Tickets for the general on-sale are available 10 a.m. Friday, March 10. 

On April 2, she's set to co-host the CMT Music Awards alongside Kane Brown from the Moody Center in Austin, Texas. The show will air live on CBS.
