Kelsea Ballerini has announced a new album coming with healing lyrics. These are the versions of the songs she has been singing at concerts recently plus one new song.
Kelsea Ballerini Announces New Album
Kelsea Ballerini went to her Facebook page last night to announce this new album that is coming. Her post explains exactly what fans can expect and that it will come out on August 11, 2023. Here is what Kelsea had to say:
“ROLLING UP THE WELCOME MAT (FOR GOOD). august eleven.
“it’s kinda scary opening a wound that time has mended”
…but this unexplainably transformative welcome mat had one last bit of rolling up to do 🤍
it’s most important that i articulate that this re-release is for you and you only. the added outro’s that we ended up screamsinging nightly on tour, the lyric changes along a healing journey, hearing you very loudly explain that the INTERLUDE NEEDS TO BE A FULL SONG KELSEA COME ON. plus, a new song to bring the story more up to date.
with this, comes a favor. from the deepest and purest part of my heart, i ask that you help this be ours and let the music simply be the music, not dig back into the experience that it was written about nearly a year ago. as a songwriter, producer, artist i’m proud and protective of this EP, and as a woman and human also proud and protective of the new, happy season of life i’m in.
my real hope is for us to continue growing, healing, and evolving together with acceptance and kindness (even when we unleash our inner fire breathing dragon singing the new versions of these songs). am i right? 😉 https://orcd.co/rutwmfg”

One lyric she changed was in “Penthouse” from “Now I don’t know where you’re sleeping, baby” to “Now I don’t care where you’re sleeping, baby.” The fans always sing this part along with her really loud at concerts.
Kelsea Ballerini’s Heart Doesn’t Hurt Anymore
Kelsea went through a very hard divorce with Morgan Evans and that is when she wrote Rolling Up The Welcome Mat. They divorced back in mid-2022. It was really hard on her and you can tell from the lyrics to her songs. Now, she is with Chase Stokes, happy and healed. As she explained this wound is “mended.” It sounds like she doesn’t want anyone giving Morgan a hard time but instead wants fans to let them both move on from their divorce. If he is dating, he hasn’t shared who just yet.
