One of the most highly anticipated country music events CMA Fest 2022 finally took place on June 11 with the likes of Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood making an appearance. Although, it was singer and TikToker Kelsea Ballerini who made a splash during the night. 

TikTok has become the hub for numerous singing stars to show off their talents and join in with the latest trends on the platform.

Just some of the music icons to make waves on TikTok include Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Lizzo, who sparked a viral dance trend with her song ‘About Damn Time.’

Country singer and songwriter Kelsea Ballerini similarly set herself up on the platform in March 2020. With her first TikTok video picking up 3.2 million views as of writing, it’s no surprise she’s established a glittering TikTok career also.

Ballerini then went from strength to strength, receiving various nominations from the Grammy and Billboard Music Awards.

She also temporarily covered for Kelly Clarkson as a coach during Season 20 of The Voice, certifying her title as a prominent pop star.
