Kelsea Ballerini ft. Kenny Chesney – Half Of My Hometown

Kelsea Ballerini explained that Kenny Chesney initially reached out to her after he saw her name on a billboard.  She says: “He [Chesney] saw my name on the scrolling billboard in Times Square and took a photo of it, got my number and sent it to me and said ‘I’m so proud of you, hometown girl,’ because we’re both from Knoxville.  It was the most encouraging, magical thing that could have happened to me two-and-a-half years ago. I like, freaked out.”  When Kelsea finished writing ‘Half of my Hometown’, she knew Kenny needed to be on it.
