Kelsea Ballerini Still Hates Love Songs During ‘Seth Meyers’ Appearance [Watch]
Kelsea Ballerini still hates love songs, and she gracefully expressed that to the audience during a stop at Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday (Aug. 1).
The country starlet gave late-night viewers an elegant performance of her latest single "I Hate Love Songs," beautifully singing the tongue-in-cheek track that gently pokes fun at love-related cliches.
Ballerini kept the atmosphere light-hearted, standing-center stage as she crooned, "And I'll always love you but I don't have to sing it / "For worse or for better" don't rhyme / They say I got the right one so now I should write one / But I'd rather just show you tonight / I hate love songs / Yeah I really do / I hate love songs / But I love you."
A pink piano and lights in the background helped set a dreamy, relaxed tone.
Ballerini co-wrote the sharp "I Hate Love Songs" with Shane McAnally and Old Dominion's Trevor Rosen. The song is featured on her chart-topping album Unapologetically. “It was the only time I’ve gotten a standing ovation at the Opry. I called my label and I was like, ‘I think we need to cut this song.’ Now, I play it live and it seems to be one that people like,” she tells Sounds Like Nashville.
Next, Ballerini will take part in the CMA Fest TV special, which airs on Aug. 8 on ABC, hosting the show with Thomas Rhett. She's spent the summer on the road on Keith Urban's Graffiti U World Tour — that continues through November.
