Kelsea Ballerini may get swept up in the craziness of her busy schedule that includes touring and traveling and performing every day all day. Gearing up for her first-ever headlining tour, Ballerini has been trying to squeeze in all the free time she can get and that gives her a few days here and there to explore the city she’s come to know and love as home: Nashville.
Keeping up with Ballerini may sound like a lot, but she knows exactly where to find the trendiest trinkets and Instagram-worthy coffee just as any local should. Balancing her love of the outdoors with her love of food (what can she say…best of both worlds?), the country cutie let us in on some of her favorite stops right here in Music City.
