Before Kelsea Ballerini took to the stage to announce the Radio Stations of the Year at the 2015 CMA Awards, the singer performed her No. 1 hit song, "Love Me Like You Mean It."

Before she announcing the Radio Station winners, Ballerini thanked country radio stations for showing artists like herself love with their airtime. Although her time on stage may have been short and sweet, it is clear that Ballerini is starting to carve a name for herself in the country scene.

“I am still such a new artist, and this has really been my first year getting out there to share my music with people,” Ballerini notes. “To have been embraced with a No. 1 single was insane. I still feel like I’m celebrating that, but now to be nominated for two CMA Awards makes me feel so proud to be a country music artist and makes me so incredibly thankful to everyone in the country music industry, country radio and the fans for making this year insanely epic.”
