Filmed live from Nashville, Ballerini is offering at-home viewers a front-row seat to her milestone performance at Bridgestone Arena. Airing at 9 p.m. ET/PT on DIRECTV channel 239, AT&T U-verse channel 1114, and on-demand through DIRECTV NOW, the high-caliber footage was captured in front of a sold-out audience during the final U.S. date of her fall run on Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR.


“Some of my biggest concert memories have been at this venue and Nashville shows are always super special,” Ballerini shares. “To be able to bring fans into my tour world and share this epic night with them is really cool.”

Mixing her history-making #1s from her GOLD-certified debut THE FIRST TIME – PLATINUM-certified “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Peter Pan,” and “Dibs” – with breakout tracks from her acclaimed sophomore album UNAPOLOGETICALLY, such as the anthemic title track, “I Hate Love Songs,” and Top 15 and rising lead single, “Legends,” Ballerini’s top-tier set further cements her Country music stardom.

As UNAPOLOGETICALLY continues to garner overwhelming support, illustrious outlets are including the poignant project on their reputable year-end lists. Spotlighted in The New York Times’ “The Best Albums of 2017” and Rolling Stone Country’s “40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2017,” UNAPOLOGETICALLY has also received a genre-blurring nod by BuzzFeed’s “The Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2017” for the self-assured knockout “Get Over Yourself.”

Beginning in February, Ballerini will welcome fans inside her whirlwind world of loss, life, and love, as she introduces UNAPOLOGETICALLY nationwide on THE UNAPOLOGETICALLY TOUR. From the Alabama Theatre in Birmingham, AL, on February 8, to the annual Stagecoach Festival in Indio, CA, on April 27 – with big city stops in Nashville, TN, New York, NY, and Seattle, WA in-between – she will be supported by special guest and breakout artist Walker Hayes. Rising star Bailey Bryan will also join for a special one-night-only appearance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Valentine’s Day.
