Kelsea Ballerini, Halsey set for ‘CMT Crossroads’

The concert airs in 2020

Kelsea Ballerini and Halsey are set for the latest edition of CMT Crossroads. The special concert will be taped on Friday, October 11th at the Ascend Amphitheater in Downtown Nashville. The episode will be the 70th in the series’ 18 year history.

“From hearing ‘Colors’ for the first time years ago to her playing the first cut of ‘Without Me’ in my living room last year, I’ve always been a superfan of Halsey,” Ballerini states of the collaboration. “Her songwriting has a way of painting the most beautiful pictures and telling the most emotional of stories, and after becoming fast friends over wine and karaoke nights, I can’t think of anyone I’d rather share the CMT Crossroads stage with. We’re going to bring a little pop, a little country, a big love of songwriting, and no doubt some sass to Nashville next week.”

The pair are great friends in real life and have been seen singing karaoke songs in Nashville.

“I feel so fortunate to have a friend like Kelsea,” Halsey shares. “She is a spectacular talent and an even better human being. It’s been an honor to watch from the sidelines as she has trailblazed country music the past few years. Her songs make me laugh and cry and put every single window down in the car.”

Halsey continues, “The first stage Kelsea and I ever shared together was a three foot karaoke dance floor right in Nashville. We’ve sang together in my living room, in her kitchen, in the back seat of cars in drive through lines late at night. And this time we get to get on a real stage, one of the most iconic stages in history, and do the thing we love the most in front of a city that is so dear to both of us.”

The all ages show will be general admission, and ticketing details will be posted on prior to the show. The show will be airing on CMT in early 2020.
