Her breakout hit “Love Me Like You Mean It” and catchy new single “Dibs” are featured on her debut album THE FIRST TIME that landed Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey, Ballerini wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs on the project. This summer, the talented singer/songwriter is hitting the road playing major festivals, headline club dates and select stops on Lady Antebellum’s WHEELS UP Tour.
