Kelsea Ballerini To Headline ‘New Years Rockin’ Eve’ in NYC with The Chainsmokers and Many More

Kelsea Ballerini has had a HUGE year full of outstanding performances, chart-topping songs, and unexpected collaborations, and I couldn’t be more excited for her to cap it all off with a headlining slot at Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve on December 31st. The country superstar will join Foster the People, Dua Lipa, Macklemore, Skylar Grey, Ella Mai, Charlie Puth and the Chainsmokers to ring in 2019 live from New York City.

The show, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, is set to include a whopping 5 1/2 hours of performances, with more performers to be announced closer to the event. Other hosts include Jenny McCarthy from Times Square, Lucy Hale from New Orleans, and Ciara from Hollywood.

Here’s to hoping we make it to midnight.

The 13th Annual New Years Rockin’ Eve countdown begins live from New York City at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC.
