Black River Entertainment’s Kelsea Ballerini made her late night TV debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (9/30), performing the sassy, Top 25-and-climbing single “Dibs.”

The double CMA Award nominee (New Artist of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year) also gave a web exclusive of her #1, GOLD-certified smash “Love Me Like You Mean It,” which can be seen here —

Both “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs” are featured on her debut album THE FIRST TIME (Black River Entertainment), co-produced by Forest Glen Whitehead and Jason Massey, which landed Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.

Ballerini launched to stardom with the release of her #1, GOLD-certified debut “Love Me Like You Mean It” and current chart-rising single “Dibs.” Abuzz with shout-outs from superstars Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town, she is the first solo female artist in nine years to hit #1 with her debut country single and one of only 11 women to have ever hit the top of the charts with a debut.

After spending the summer opening select shows for Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban, she is currently on Dan + Shay’s JUST THE RIGHT KIND OF CRAZY TOUR.
