Cam Talks About Her Christmas Traditions

With the holidays nearing, Cam  discusses the Christmas traditions that she grew up with and holds true to today: “Once my sister and I started getting old enough, past Santa Clause, we open our gifts on, or at least we open some of the gifts on Christmas Eve, which is really fun because I hate waiting. (laugh) So, that part I really like doing and I like that tradition, and I think my parents are actually moving to the ranch that my grandparents owned for a long time down in Ocean Side so were gonna have, I’m hoping we can have Christmas there but my grandmother would always tie red bandanas on the tree and have a little cowboy hat on top so yeah that would be kind of cute to do.”

Not Perfect, Just Real – Kelsea Ballerini

Kelsea Ballerini isn’t going to let her success or pressure from within the industry change the kind of music she makes. Kelsea tells the Chicago Tribune, “As a young girl there are pressures that come with any career, but I decided when I got into this I didn’t want to be perfect. I just want to be real and who I am.” And there are plenty of good reasons why Ballerini would never compromise her integrity as an artist. She says, “That’s something I’d feel comfortable with any little girl looking up to so that’s who I try to be.”


  • Kelsea also talked about how she’s looking forward to her first-ever headlining trek; the aptly titled “The First Time Tour.” She shares, “When you headline, you get to just be available and really be one on one with your fans. I really want to make myself as available as I can be for them.”
  • “The First Time Tour” will kick off on October 21 in Houston, Texas, and will wrap up in December with a two-night stand in Las Vegas with special guest Cam.
