Kelsea Ballerini released two albums in 2020 titled 'Kelsea' and 'Ballerini'. 'Ballerini', the stripped-down version of 'Kelsea', is full of heartwarming, calm acoustic tracks whereas 'Kelsea' is more pop-sounding and upbeat. She was nominated in the Female Artist of the Year category but lost to Maren Morris.
