Kelsea Ballerini Says She Misses the Red Carpet Ahead of ACM Awards Appearance

Kelsea Ballerini poses for photos while attending a virtual radio row press day for the 2020 ACM Awards on Monday (September 14) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 27-year-old country singer opened up about how she used to get so anxious on the red carpet, but she misses getting dressed up for them amid the pandemic.

“Like, I hated them because I got so anxious,” she told Taste of Country. “I don’t know why. I would just struggle really bad with anxiety about them, so I would just run on, do photos and like three interviews and leave because I just hated it.”

“And then I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, Carrie Underwood is on the carpet. Get out of her way, she’s the queen,’” Kelsea continued. “But now, I miss it so much. I’m like, ‘Yes, put me in a pair of Spanx and let’s go!’”

Well, good news for Kelsea (and for us): she’ll be back on the red carpet for the ACM Awards on Wednesday!
