When asked about Taylor, Kelsea said: “She is my friend and I think the biggest advice that she has given me [was] early on in my radio tour, I was 19 and I was scared out of my mind. And I think I just tried to answer every question correctly and be what I thought I needed to be and she told me, ‘Listen, it’s going to feel like cool winds sometimes, but if you stay true to who you are and be yourself, people will gravitate towards that.'”
While Kelsea has been quickly taking over the charts with her country hits Love Me Like You Mean It and Peter Pan, the singer has been hard at work on her second album:
“[The attention] is honestly just encouraging and that makes me work really hard to hopefully prove them right,” she said. “Right now I’m making my second record and I’m pouring every ounce of creative energy into it and I want to make sure it’s better than the first so may fans [and the industry] feel like I’m still giving them something that they want to play and want to put their name on. That’s the most important.”
Kelsea also revealed what being a role model to her younger fans means to her, saying: “I love that I have young fans and to me, being a role model doesn’t mean being perfect. It’s being real and honest and I try to be very transparent with my fans. I want to make sure I’m the same person they see on stage, out at dinner and on Instagram.”
