BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT artist KELSEA BALLERINI will receive the "RISING STAR" Award at BILLBOARD's WOMEN IN MUSIC event, set for FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11th in NEW YORK and airing on LIFETIME TV NETWORK on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18th. The award honors artists who demonstrate success both on and off the charts.
"At 22, KELSEA BALLERINI already has a career to kill for, from a hit song to award nominations and even a stop at the famed GRAND OLE OPRY," said GUGGENHEIM MEDIA's Entertainment Group Co-President/CCO JANICE MIN. "Much like CARRIE UNDERWOOD and TAYLOR SWIFT before, KELSEA is a powerful songwriter that has NASHVILLE a buzz. Expertly bridging the Pop-Country gap, her songs have heart and it is only the beginning."
