Album Review: Kelsea Ballerini | ‘The First Time’

Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey, THE FIRST TIME highlights Ballerini’s skillful songwriting and contagious personality on all 12 songs.

This debut effort from Black River Entertainment artist Kelsea Ballerina can be summed up in one word by me: FABULOUS!

It is rare that a song, let along an entire album captivates me so.  Since I received the advance copy last Wednesday, it has not left my CD player.  I have even worn it out to the point that it is skipping now!


From the catchy, upbeat first song “XO” to the last song, a beautiful ballad, “Underage”, you will be drawn into Kelsea’s engaging world.  I literally can not get enough of it.  A perfect fit for summer to roll the windows down to and sing along with her fresh, contemporary country grooves.

Added points for a new country female breaking through on country radio.  Finally! Jump onboard the Kelsea Ballerini train, people! This one is a winner matched with her sparkling personality there is a new country star in the making here! I expect we will be seeing and hearing a lot more from her!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars.  Perfection!
