Music fans won't have to miss Kelsea Ballerini this spring. The country-pop phenom announced her 2019 tour plans on Monday, just days after she released a new single called "I Think I Fell In Love Today." Listen to the new song by playing the video above, before getting your tickets to the Miss Me More Tour through AXS.
The tour kicks off in April and is Ballerini's third headlining tour in the last four years. It's named after the latest single from her sophomore album Unapologetically, which was just re-released on Friday with four new tracks, including "I Think I Fell In Love Today." When originally released last fall, the record started off at number seven on the Billboard 200, which eclipsed the debut of her first album The First Time.
There's a good reason for that: Ballerini's popularity has exploded since she made her debut in 2015. The Academy of Country Music honored her with its Gene Weed Milestone Award last year, and the 25-year-old also won Best New Country Artist at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards. While she's captured that critical acclaim, she's also captured the attention of country music fans worldwide for her energy and unique musical style.
While it's not uncommon for country artists to mix pop music into their songs, Ballerini has proven particularly adept at it. Rather than letting the pop element take over her country sound, she's been able to keep her singles sounding like country music that just happens to have pop elements in it. Her music has spark, sass and is easy to sing along with, which makes it perfect for live audiences. Plus, with Brett Young as her opening act, this is a doubleheader that country music fans will fall in love with.
Ballerini will set off on her solo tour after serving as an opening act for two of the biggest names in country music. She opens for Keith Urban at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on Dec. 3, and from January to March 2019, will be opening for Kelly Clarkson on Clarkson's Meaning of Life Tour. Tickets to see Kelsea Ballerini on both of those tours are on sale now through AXS.

A fan club pre-sale begins Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. local time, before tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Nov. 2, also at 10 a.m. local time.
