Country singer Kelsea Ballerini is nominated for her first-ever AMA for Favorite Country Female Artist this year. The 22-year-old songstress put together a playlist with some of her favorite cuts from fellow nominees exclusively for Us Weekly. The American Music Awards air on ABC Sunday, Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. ET.
“Where Are Ü Now” by Jack Ü and Justin Bieber: “Not gonna lie… I missed the Biebs! He’s winning with his new sound. And I still jam to ‘Baby.’”
“Timebomb” by Tove Lo: “I am obsessed with her music. This is a song I sooo wish I had written. She has such a perfect, spitfire way to say the things she does.”
“Girl Crush” by Little Big Town: “Hands down my favorite song on country radio this year. I adore everything Little Big Town does, but this song made me stop in my tracks. I’m so happy it was as big as it was for them.”
“Relapse” by Carrie Underwood: “This is my favorite track from her new album, Storyteller. Such a dark, cool groove — and she sings it like she means it.”
“Clean” by Taylor Swift: “Everyone knows I love me some T. Swift. This song reminds me of her first CD, one that made a huge impact on me. I’ve always loved how real and personal her music feels.”
“On My Mind” by Ellie Goulding: “I’ve always loved Ellie’s music, but this song is on another level. This is my favorite hype-up song before shows.”
“Single For the Summer” by Sam Hunt: “Sam’s whole record is incredible, but this one is lyrically my favorite. It shows his unique songwriting and storytelling.”
