Kelly Clarkson Teams With Kelsea Ballerini for 2019 Meaning of Life Tour
Kelly Clarkson just became the second superstar vocalist to announce an all-female tour for 2019. Kelsea Ballerini and Season 14 The Voice winner Brynn Cartelli will join the country-leaning pop singer on her Meaning of Life Tour, beginning in January.
The announcement was made in a pretty adorable Smule video posted to Twitter on Friday morning (Sept. 13). One finds Clarkson and Cartelli singing Clarkson's song "Meaning of Life." Soon Ballerini appears in the frame, turning a duet into a three-woman collaboration that finds each taking lead and harmonies. At the end, they all agree to tour together, with Ballerini saying "I'm so in, I'm so in!"
Ballerini will be on 19 of the 28 tour dates, with Cartelli appearing on all 28. It all begins on Jan. 24 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., and wraps Greenville, S.C., on March 30. Stops in Nashville, Chicago, Detroit, Boston and Kansas City are planned. A full list of tour dates is available below.
The tour will wrap before the Clarkson is needed for Season 16 of The Voice. It will be her third season as a coach on the NBC reality show; Season 15 begins on Sept. 24. Like Clarkson, former American Idol winner Carrie Underwood announced an all-female tour with Runaway June and Maddie and Tae for 2019. The Cry Pretty Tour 360 starts in May.
