Kelsea Ballerini's 'Drunk' Text To Kenny Chesney Landed Her A Duet Partner

Kelsea Ballerini and Kenny Chesney both call Knoxville, TN home. Hailing from the same geographical coordinates makes their collaboration on "Half Of My Hometown" even more charming.

But, how did a drunk text land Kelsea a duet partner? Kelsea shared the story behind her 'bold' ask.

"We had some wine, duh!" laughs the "Hole In The Bottle" singer. "After dinner, I was just like, I am going to text him the demo and like, I don't even have any business having Kenny Chesney's number, but I did. He messaged me the next day and said that he loved it."

The stakes were high, not only is Kenny a mega superstar who happens to be from her hometown, but it's been over ten years since Kenny has agreed to guest on an outside track.
