Kelsea Ballerini’s song, “half of my hometown” featuring Kenny Chesney is the number one song at country radio this week. Read about Ballerini’s hit song below…
With country radio still being a male-dominated industry, we are always so excited to see a female singer-songwriter reach the top of the charts. Perfectly timed for Women’s History month, Kelsea Ballerini has landed at the number one spot. This week, Ballerini’s song, “half of my hometown” featuring Kenny Chesney is the number one song at country radio.
The song is one of the songstress’ most vulnerable to date. It portrays the back-and-forth feelings of wanting to stay in your comfort zone, but also wanting to improve. The duet nature of the song with Chesney amplifies the already incredible track. Although unexpected, the collaboration was the perfect fit for the song.
“In their daddy’s Ford // Half of my main street’s mini skirts // Half of my main street’s dressed for church // It could use some rain and a fresh coat of paint // Half of my hometown’s still hangin’ around // Still talkin’ about that one touchdown // They’re still wearin’ red and black”
“half of my hometown” marks Ballerini’s 7th number one song and Chesney’s 35th.
