Kelsea Ballerini’s 2017 could be even bigger than her breakout 2016: Three days before performing “Yeah Boy” at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 2, the 23-year-old took a break from rehearsals at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to chat about her new music and impending nuptials to Australian country singer-songwriter Morgan Evans. “I feel like my whole life’s kind of a celebration,” said Ballerini, who was up for two ACM Awards after scoring a best new artist nod at the 2017 Grammys.
Wearing a Janet Jackson T-shirt during ACM rehearsals, the singer-songwriter said that she’s “absolutely” getting married and releasing an album this year, as “Yeah Boy” is her final single from 2015 debut The First Time. “We’re just now planning it,” she said of the wedding, grinning and showing off a diamond ring that Evans proposed with last December.
