Kelsea Ballerini has hosted the CMT Music Awards for the past three years.

But this year’s 2024 show, his fourth, will be the first time he’s done it without co-host Kane Brown.

The star was also named as one of the night’s performers.

The Penthouse and Mountain with a View singer, 30, opened up to the public people magazine about entering her fourth year as a solo presenter.

“It’s definitely new territory for me,” Ballerini said.

‘But it’s my fourth year hosting, so I feel like I’ve learned a lot. And the nice thing about CMT is that there’s a very light energy, so there’s no pressure to feel like I’m perfect.

“I just want to be fun, honor the night and help people have a good time.”

Ballerini hasn’t been shy about using the show to make a statement.

He performed with drag queens during Tennessee’s drag queen ban and last year brought up the issue of gun violence.

“I think when you have a platform, especially as a host, especially on a show that has such a big platform on CBS and CMT, you have a responsibility to address the things that matter,” the four-time Grammy nominee explained.

‘Both statements from last year really mattered to me. “I just think it’s very important to have moments on every show, whether it’s CMT or any show, where people express their desires, so that everyone feels seen and safe.”

The star was also named as one of the night’s performers. The Penthouse and Mountain with a View singer, 30, spoke to People magazine about her fourth year as a solo host. “It’s definitely new territory for me,” Ballerini said. Seen in mid-February in New York.

Ballerini is dating Chase Stokes, whom she called her “best friend”; they have been together for a year

The country singer is coming off a successful year in 2023, anchored by her hit EP ‘Rolling up the welcome mat’, which ranked third for the year on Rolling Stone’s list of the 25 greatest country and Americana albums.

However, 2023 was also the year in which a messy divorce between her and Morgan Evans, her husband of five years, was finally resolved.
