Kelsea Ballerini at Starland Ballroom

Those who know me know I'm not really into Country Music, but I'm always a sucker for live music. Last fall while I was cutting through Bryant Park on the way home from a shoot, I stumbled upon Kelsea Ballerini giving a free concert in the park.  I was so impressed with her performance I ran out and got her CD and started following her on Social Media.

When I found out she was going to be performing at Starland Ballroom this past January, I jumped at the chance to see her again, but this time I could sing along to all the songs!!

Up first was Madeline Smith, a New Jersey native!

Followed by Haley Steele!

Finally it was time for Kelsea Ballerini! And she was even better then I remembered her in NYC!

Over all it was a great night! I would't say I'm a country music convert, but I definitely have a whole new appreciation of the genre now!  Madeline Smith and Haley Steele both helped with that as well!

 Hanging with Madeline Smith!
