Standing atop a white-paneled and illuminated stage outside of the main venue, this young country music star unveiled her very first public performance of her new song in front of a sea of people – and they lost their minds!

Having been outside the venue waiting for what could have been hours, these devoted fans brought massive handmade signs that echoed the name of her new single, “Legend”, in tiny lights.

Just released earlier this morning (June 7th), Kelsea Ballerini‘s newest single has already charted all the way to the Top 5 on iTunes country music chart by mid-morning and showed no signs of stopping!

“Legends” is the first release off of her highly-anticipated sophomore album that is the followup to her record-breaking debut album,¬†The First Time – which saw the first three singles go No. 1 consecutively followed by the album’s fourth single which nailed the No. 3 spot on Billboard’s U.S. Country Airplay.

Already becoming a legend among modern country fans and artists today, it’s clear that there’s a huge draw to this 23-year-old’s witty songwriting and unforgettable melodies.
