Kelsea Ballerini Has ‘Dibs’ on Being Country Radio’s Most-Added
Following Kelsea Ballerini's record breaking "Love Me Like You Mean It," the up-and-coming star is back with her next single, "Dibs," which impacted terrestrial radio this week.
In it's first week on the radio waves, 72 stations picked up the upbeat and catchy song, making it the most-added single song at country radio this week. The tune first debuted on SiriusXM's the Highway weekly music discovery show On The Horizon back in February, before quickly being moved into the station's regular rotation due to its immediate popularity.
This latest feat for Ballerini comes shortly after receiving the news that "Love Me Like You Mean It" lead Billboard's Country Airplay chart (dated July 4), making her the first woman to hold the top spot with a debut single since Carrie Underwood's 2006 "Jesus Take the Wheel." This also marks the first time a solo female has been on top of the charts since 2012.
The 21-year-old Knoxville native took to Twitter to thank everyone for the support she has received:
Don't worry Kelsea, we'll catch up with you soon to get that hug you promised.
Things are starting to really heat up for Ballerini. Just last week she played her first headlining New York City show at the Gramercy Theatre. The show earned rave reviews from Billboard and marked an impressive first show in the Big Apple.
Ballerini is currently playing festivals for the remainder of the summer as well as select dates on Lady Antebellum's Wheels Up tour. Her debut album The First Time is available now.
