Kelsea Ballerini Debuts New Song, ‘I Hate Love Songs’ [Watch]
Kelsea Ballerini has been spreading her new music like wildfire, and fans who attended the 2017 CMA Music Festival got a solid taste of what's in store for the singer's new album.
During her performance at Nissan Stadium on June 9, Ballerini debuted a new song from her upcoming album titled "I Hate Love Songs." The clever song takes on all the cliches that come with love like "cards with glitter" and "catching bouquets," with the young star making the audience laugh with humorous lyrics like "I think is Cupid is stupid / And violets are purple not blue" and "We were drunk when we met / So we don't know our anniversary."
But in between the tongue-in-cheek shout-outs about the cheesy rituals that come along with love songs, she throws in the "aww" factor during the chorus when singing "I hate love songs / Yeah I really do / I hate love songs / But I love you." The singer is so confident in the number that she had the crowd sing the last chorus for her.
Ballerini says there are songs about a difficult breakup and songs about finding new love on her upcoming project. She's been dating singer Morgan Evans for the last year, and they announced their engagement on Christmas Day in 2016.

"I Hate Love Songs" is the newest song the star has shared from her upcoming 2017 project, in addition to songs called “Roses," “High School” and the album's first single "Legends," which she debuted live at the 2017 CMT Music Awards.
Ballerini's currently untitled album will step in a more mature direction than her debut project, The First Time, which spawned three No. 1 singles. “I feel like the so album is so personal that I’m like actually a little anxious to put it out,” she tells Taste of Country. “There were songs that I was nervous to show my label, nervous to show my management … but to see the way the people close to me that know me really well have responded to it makes me excited to get it out there.”
