Continuing her climb as Country’s newest female superstar, Black River Entertainment artist Kelsea Ballerini releases the heart-swelling video for her brand new single, “Legends,” tomorrow (6/29).
Partnering with iHeartRadio, the stunning video will premiere across all iHeartCountry station sites, bringing Ballerini’s tale of “crazy, tragic, epic” love to life as a deeply moving short film. Directed by Jeff Venable, the clip unveils a couple’s entire romantic history – from the first stolen glances to its tear-jerking conclusion, with all their tender triumphs and surprises in between.
Singing boldly from the edge of a majestic, windswept ocean cliff in Big Sur, California, Ballerini captivates in a graceful, sophisticated gown, stepping into the unknown on the next leg of her own legendary journey and giving fans a sneak peek at her new look in the process.
A dramatic teaser of the full video can be viewed here.
“Legends” is the first taste of Ballerini’s highly anticipated second album, with more details about the project coming soon. Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey, the track was co-written by Ballerini with Whitehead and Hillary Lindsey and is currently poised to make a strong debut on the Country radio charts.
It follows the unprecedented success of Ballerini’s debut album, THE FIRST TIME, which landed inside the Top 5 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart and spawned three consecutive PLATINUM and GOLD #1 singles with “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs,” and “Peter Pan” – marking the only time in Country history a female artist has hit #1 with her first three singles. Her fourth release from THE FIRST TIME – the fun and flirty GOLD-certified “Yeah Boy” – rose to the lofty height of #3 on the Country radio airplay charts.
The young star is currently opening shows in front of massive, early-arriving crowds on Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR, crisscrossing the country this summer and visiting new fans in the U.K., Ireland, and Europe in October.
