Kelsea Ballerini Is 'Unapologetically' Writing Mature Music

Kelsea Ballerini is 'Unapologetically' maturing and is happy to share her journey with her fans through her music.

In a recent interview with Cody Alan, the "Hole In A Bottle" singer revealed the moment she realized that taking a step forward in vulnerability was crucial.

"I think, you know, my first record and even "Legends" and "Love Songs," they were such fun, flirty, romanticized stories, says Kelsea. "I think Miss Me More was the first song where I was really talking about the more mature side of a relationship."

"I was really talking more about not the fun, happy side of a relationship. But the "This was difficult to get through" side, where I had to really fight to find myself again after this relationship."

"Seeing that song be my biggest song, and how well it was received especially with young girls made me think, "I need to go down that route more," says the singer. "I need to dig into myself more and not be scared to put that side of me out, pared with the fun live songs too."
