Speaking with Health magazine recently, Kelsea opened up about some life lessons she’s learned so far and her biggest one is how failure isn’t always the worst thing in the world.


“Failure is so important. I feel like failure can reroute your life,” she shared.

“It sounds silly,” Kelsea added, “but in eighth grade I was one of two girls who didn’t make the cheerleading squad. And you know what? That was the year I picked up a guitar and wrote a song. So failure is what keeps you on your path. It also gives you a pause to breathe before something great happens.”

Kelsea Ballerini Was Part of the Glee Club in High School

Kelsea Ballerini Was Part of the Glee Club in High School

Kelsea Ballerini has an affection for Peter Pan – both the book, the character, and her own song.

Turns out though that her connection to “Peter Pan” started long before her song of the same name — she actually starred in the play!

“I was part of glee club. So we did like Guys and Dolls and Peter Pan,” she shared in a video interview.

Kelsea adds, “I was the ostrich in Peter Pan. I think it was a pity role, I don’t think it actually existed and know my director wrote it in for me.”

While Kelsea thinks it was a pity role, the musical play actually does feature the Never Ostrich, who appears at the beginning of Act II.

Speaking to People last night at the 2017 CMA Awards, Morgan revealed that their wedding is fast approaching and will be here within just a couple of weeks.

“It’s pretty wild, but somehow this year, it all worked out,” he shared. “I put out a single. Kelsea put out an album, and we got married within the course of about five weeks. I say ‘got married’ in the past, but it’s happening soon.”


So, that means that their wedding will possibly be around Thanksgiving — such a perfect time, too!

Even though Morgan knew he was going to marry Kelsea before he even met her, he knew that it was his accent that totally won her over.

“I’m going to marry her before she gets sick of it,” he joked.

Click inside NOW to find out the story behind Kelsea’s “Legends”…

“It’s a chameleon. It’s the first song that I’ve ever written that has changed meanings for me,” Kelsea writes for The Boot.

“I wrote it from a breakup three years ago, because I had written a lot of ‘Get Over Yourself,’ ‘Miss Me More,’ ‘Graveyard’ kind of songs — angsty, dark, mad, sad. But I was so ready to be over it, and I think that to really be over it, you have to acknowledge the good. So that was my song of acknowledging the good, in a very bright way.

“And then when it was time to pick the single, this song kept raising its hand. And I was like, ‘Man. This isn’t where I’m at anymore, and I don’t know if I relate to it anymore like that.’ So I started listening to it, and it changed meanings for me. It’s a love song to me now, and it’s about a love that you’re nostalgic about, that doesn’t necessarily have to end. So it’s the last song on the record because, to me, it’s kind of like that forever, which I think will open up to start the next chapter of whatever that looks like.”
