On March 4, Kelsea will team up with a fellow ‘Kelce’ for a special episode of Saturday Night Live, the hugely popular comedy variety show. It'll be hosted by recent Super Bowl winner, Travis Kelce, while Tennessee country star, Kelsea Ballerini, will provide the musical entertainment.
During Kelsea's recent show in London, UK, she revealed that the song she'd be performing on SNL would be ‘Penthouse’. She then treated the crowd to a heartfelt performance of the song.
@hollercountry “I definitely never thought I would play any of these live,” @Kelsea Ballerini surprises UK fans with a song from her latest EP, Rolling Up The Welcome Mat, on her #HEARTFIRST Tour 💔🥲 #kelseaballerini #musictok #countrymusic ♬ original sound - Holler
The vulnerable track appears on Kelsea's new EP, Rolling Up the Welcome Mat, which explores the breakdown of her marriage to fellow country singer, Morgan Evans.
During her UK performance, the singer-songwriter confessed that she never thought she'd play the song live. Her UK fans were certainly glad she has decided to incorporate it into her setlist, and they'll be excited to see the live TV debut of ‘Penthouse’ on SNL in March.
Kelsea Ballerini has never appeared on SNL before, and in a recent conversation with Holler, the ‘HEARTFIRST’ hitmaker underlined what an honour it was to be chosen to appear on the show.
Having now completed her UK run of dates, Kelsea Ballerini is returning Stateside for her tour of the US and Canada, which is set to kick off on March 6 in Toronto.
The following month, Kelsea will be joined by Kane Brown to host the 2023 CMT Awards in Austin, Texas on April 2.
