Kelsea Ballerini was the epitome of casual-cool in a denim button-down shirt as she performed her anti-love song at the 2018 CMT Music Awards on June 6. “I Hate Love Songs” got some of the biggest applause of the night, and rightfully so.
“Your eyes can’t hold stars and you’d die if your heart really skipped,” she crooned, strumming an acoustic guitar.
All eyes were on Ballerini as she filled the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. with her clear vocals, giving an adorable little shoulder shimmy at one point.
Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton, Sam Hunt, Luke Bryan, Darius Rucker, Jason Aldean, Charles Kelley, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Little Big Town, Sam Hunt and Chris Stapleton are all expected to take the stage as well — keep checking back at Billboard throughout the evening for full CMTs coverage.
