While pop culture fans love her hits like “Miss Me More,” “homecoming queen?” and “Peter Pan,” the country music singer has also developed a large, loyal fan base on social media thanks to her honest and relatable posts.
One week, the 27-year-old is posing in a bathing suit she purchased from her local Target. The next week, she’s documenting her “weekly date” to the Chick-fil-A drive thru. Spoiler alert: She loves the nuggets and waffle fries.
And while she may be nominated for multiple awards at the 2020 CMT Music Awards airing Wednesday, Oct. 21, this singer enjoys documenting her totally normal life for her fans. And guess what? The best may be yet to come.
She added, “Some performances, some surprises. I need to go refill my teapot now, seems I’ve spilled.”
Fighting for What’s Right
“To all the ladies that bust their asses to have half the opportunities that men do, I’m really sorry that in 2020, after YEARS of conversation of equal play, there are still some companies that make their stations play by these rules,” she wrote on Twitter. “It’s unfair and it’s incredibly disappointing.”
“I say this having been one of the few women who have been really embraced by country radio and having watched some of the bigger networks (and some of my friends that are pd’s and high up) make real changes in their programming to make it look more balanced. I am grateful. BUT. There is still inequality in airplay for women and tweets like this prove it,” Kelsea added on Instagram. “And it’s my job to say it out loud and post about it, because of the girls moving to Nashville ( or wherever) that are ready to outrun and outwork and outplay everyone.”
“I don’t know about you but WOW I have been pretty hard on myself,” she wrote. “Between the stress of the unknown, the heaviness of reality, and being home not knowing what to do with all this time off tour…my body and weight have gone back and forth a lot these last few months.”
“I’m sharing this, not because I’m feeling 100%, but because I’m remembering the things I’m control of—my health and the way I feel being one of those things,” Kelsea continued. “If you’ve been silently insecure about the way your body has handled this year, you’re not alone and I’m sending you a big hug. Have the best weekend, and know you’re beautiful just as you are.”
Can’t Stop the Beat
Crazy for Chick-fil-A
But wait, there’s more! The singer also loves some McDonald’s. “I would just like to casually throw my name in the hat for the next collab you do,” she tweeted to the chain. “I’ve been working on my rendition of the ‘I’m lovin it’ theme song for years and would truly challenge anyone to a nugget eating contest with complete confidence.”
Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop
“Last time this happened, I wrote ‘homecoming queen?’ the next day about the feeling,” she wrote. “Something beautiful will undoubtedly come from the current disappointment. nonetheless, congratulations to my friends & peers that got nominations. proud to be a part of the country family, always.”
Slowing the Spread
“Imagine being selfish enough to put thousands of people’s health at risk, not to mention the potential ripple effect, and play a NORMAL country concert right now,” she shared on Twitter. “@ChaseRiceMusic, We all want (and need) to tour. We just care about our fans and their families enough to wait.”
