It’s been a busy year for Kelsea Ballerini, and she’ll be working right up until the last minutes of 2015 when the musical note drops on the Riverfront in Downtown Nashville to ring in 2016. Kelsea will perform alongside rock stars Kings of Leon and Chris Stapleton as part of Music City’s answer to the big celebration in New York City’s Times Square on New Year’s Eve.

Friday night, you can tune in as Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott helps honor Kelsea as Billboard’s Rising Star at its Women in Music gala, alongside Martina McBride, who’ll give Loretta Lynn the Legend award. The ceremony taped last week airs at 8 p.m. ET on Lifetime.

Next February, Kelsea hits the road on the Summer Forever tour with Billy Currington. Her single “Dibs” is climbing the charts now.
