As Kelsea Ballerini gears up to release her sophomore album in the coming months, she’s staying busy as part of Lady Antebellum’s You Look Good World Tour, as well as a string of television appearances, including Good Morning America and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on July 25.
During a brief reprieve in Nashville on July 18 before getting on the road again with Lady A, Kelsea spoke with media members and revealed a few details about another landmark occasion: her upcoming wedding to singer/songwriter Morgan Evans. The couple got engaged over the Christmas holidays.
“We are so focused on music, and I think meeting each other and falling super in love with each other was a big surprise for both of us,” said Kelsea. “And I think we’re kinda like . . . we’re so stoked to get married, but the actual wedding part isn’t really what we care about. So we have a wedding planner. She did Carrie [Underwood’s] wedding. Her name’s Jane, she’s amazing. I was like, ‘I want this amount of people and I don’t want it to be in Nashville or Australia. I want it to be neutral. And we’ll be there.’ It’s at the end of the year, and we’re both gonna keep, you know, sprinting until then and then get married and take December off. I don’t have my dress or anything.”
