Kelsea Ballerini is gearing up for her next tour after finally announcing earlier this month that her fourth full-length studio album is set to release in September. The “HEARTFIRST Tour,” named after Ballerini’s first single from the new project, is stopping in only 10 cities when the country singer-songwriter hits the road this fall.
The announcement on Friday morning (July 22) comes one day after Ballerini hinted at an announcement coming soon. She responded to one TikTok user’s question about her next tour, simply giving a wink and captioning “hold onto your boots, baby.” But that TikTok user wasn’t alone… Later in the day, Ballerini showed that tons of fans were begging for a tour announcement to come soon.
“i’ve really missed you. let’s jump right back in together for these 10 special nights,” Ballerini wrote when she revealed her tour dates on her social media channels on Friday. See her 10 tour dates here:
September 24 — New York, NY
September 25 — Boston, MA

October 3 — Denver, CO
October 6 — Los Angeles, CA
October 9 — Kansas City, MO
October 11 — Atlanta, GA

Ballerini will release her long-awaited album, Subject to Change, on September 23. She announced details earlier this month after dropping major teasers on her social media channels and in email updates, calling the album “different than anything I’ve ever done, and it’s heavily influenced by… ‘90s female country.” Ballerini also released “Love Is A Cowboy” earlier this month, which followed “HEARTFIRST.”
Ballerini previously explained that she “chose ‘HEARTFIRST’ as the first single off the new project because I feel like it just sets the tone for everything I’m working on right now. It’s very warm, very breezy-feeling, very settled. That’s kind of the tone of the whole project that I’m working on, and I feel like ‘HEARTFIRST’ was the first step into that new world.”
