The Chainsmokers and Kelsea Ballerini perform "This Feeling" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Was Drew Taggart born to be a country star? The Chainsmokers' singer sure has a delicate twang, and it aims to thrill during the duo's The Ellen DeGeneres Show performance on Wednesday (Sept. 26). It was the television debut of single "This Feeling," featuring country upstart Kelsea Ballerini. Taggart's acoustic guitar work and plain white t-shirt definitely suggests crossover appeal.      

The Chainsmokers were able to give the song a fully live rendition, thanks to help from tour drummer Matt McGuire. You can actually hear the audience go wild as soon as Taggart takes to the mic. You can also catch partner Alex Pall's sporty new crop cut, recently shaved during filming of a "This Feeling" vertical video, exclusively on Spotify.
