ASCAP songwriter and Black River Entertainment recording artist Kelsea Ballerini is featured as the cover artist for MusicRow Magazine’s inaugural 2017 Touring Issue.
Ballerini has made a name for herself, becoming the only female artist in country music history to chart three consecutive No. 1 singles from her debut album, The First Time. She is currently on her first solo headlining tour, by the same title as her album. The headlining tour follows opening slots for Rascal Flatts and Lady Antebellum. Earlier today (Dec. 6), Ballerini earned a Grammy nomination in the Best New Artist category.
Earlier this year, Ballerini was named Female Artist of the Year and Breakout Artist of the Year at MusicRow‘s CountryBreakout Awards. She was also named as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country, and co-hosted ABC’s summer series Greatest Hits.
Also inside MusicRow’s Touring Issue print magazine, exclusive editorial examines numerous aspects of road life, including Lou Taylor‘s business management role for concert budgeting and Scott Scovill‘s success as one of Nashville’s concert creation and production leaders. An agent roundtable brings together Darin Murphy (CAA), Jay Williams (WME), Nick Meinema (UTA) and Steve Lassiter (APA).
The January issue will also delve into event security, examined with insurance companies Anderson Benson and Frost Specialty. VIP experiences are discussed with CID Presents, while merchandising is highlighted with Richards & Southern, and Chris Lisle gives insights from his concert lighting business.
