NASHVILLE, TENN. (April 5, 2019) – Black River Entertainment surprised Kelsea Ballerini at tour rehearsals with a GOLD-certified plaque for the now Top 10 and climbing “Miss Me More.” This milestone marks her eighth career RIAA GOLD-certified single and third one from her GRAMMY-nominated album, Unapologetically, following “I Hate Love Songs” and “Legends.”
“We couldn’t have imagined this song going gold and being top 10 at country radio while kicking off this tour," shares Ballerini. "It feels like a perfect storm and I’m so excited that this song, all about self-empowerment and love, surrounds my first ever arena headlining tour. See you this week on the road!"
