Billboard reports:

KELSEA BALLERINI has a lot of things in common with TAYLOR SWIFT . . . but the most important one has to be that inner drive they both have to succeed. You can’t make it as a country artist without it.

You can’t be lazy either, which is why both of them are songwriting machines. Kelsea had 250 songs in the can when she got her first songwriting deal . . . and then proceeded to write non-stop for a year-and-a-half after that.

She tells “Billboard”, quote, “When I was younger, I heard that for every 100 songs you write, you get 10 good ones and one hit [record] . . . and that’s proven to be so true. There’s a lot of really, really terrible ones.”

If those terrible songs get her down, well, she gets to call Taylor. Quote, “She’s like my big sister. She’s walked this so gracefully, so she’s the person that I go to when I’m like, ‘Hey, this is what I’m struggling with right now. How do I navigate this?'”

When it comes to role models, Kelsea does cast a wider net. Quote, “I’ve always been drawn to strong women in every genre. People who push the boundaries because they’re just epic.”
