Kelsea Ballerini could not believe when Shania Twain had nothing but nice things to say about her during a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight at Shania’s new Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit.
“What I love most about [Shania] is I feel like she never tried to be different—she was just herself,” Kelsea says of Shania. “That’s what made it so cool and had an edge and a quirk. That’s why I think she’s such a superstar.”
Shania had similar thoughts about the young singer.
“I love Kelsea Ballerini,” says Shania. “She’s humble. She’s talented. She writes. So I admire that. I admire her humility and grace.”
What was Kelsea’s reaction? Complete disbelief!
“No, she didn’t. No, she didn’t. No, she didn’t. No, she didn’t,” Ballerini exclaimed.
Kelsea is currently opening for Lady Antebellum on their You Look Good World Tour running through the year. Shania’s new album, Shania Now, drops September 29.
