Breakout Star Kelsea Ballerini Finds Her Name at the Top of the Marquee for The First Time Tour

ABC/Byron Cohen

She’d hinted that it would happen once she wraps her opening gig on Rascal Flatts’ Rhythm & Roots tour, but now it’s official. Kelsea Ballerini will embark on her very own headlining tour in October, marking the first time the breakout star’s name has been at the top of the marquee.

“I’ve been blessed to open for so many incredible artists and people I admire,” Kelsea reflects. “Getting to watch their shows and learn more about our craft has inspired me.”

The trek will appropriately be named The First Time, after Kelsea’s album that’s spawned three hit singles so far.

Kelsea will do 11 shows in 10 cities, with Cam joining her to wrap up with a two-night stint in Las Vegas. The majority of the dates go on sale this week, with fan club members getting first crack at them on Wednesday, before they’re available to the general public on Friday.

Here are the initial dates for The First Time Tour, with more to be added later:
