Kelsea Ballerini's CMT Music Awards Performance Will Throw Us Back a Decade

Kelsea Ballerini will perform a reimagined version of her hit song "Love Me Like You Mean It" at the CMT Music Awards. Reflecting on her success at just 20 years old when the original was released in 2014, she's excited to showcase how much she's grown as an artist. The new version is slower and more introspective, serving as a bookend to the past decade of her career. Despite the simplicity of the performance, she sees it as a perfect transition before new music. Ballerini will be supported by her mom, friends, and boyfriend Chase Stokes at the awards show, where she is hosting solo for the first time. Tune in to CBS and Paramount+ on Sunday, April 7 at 8PM ET to catch all the performances.
