Kalie Shorr Raves About Kelsea Ballerini’s Party: ‘Those Girls Are All So Amazing’
Do you wish you'd been invited to the amazing girl power party Kelsea Ballerini threw for her and her friends? Yeah, us too, but Kalie Shorr was lucky enough to be there, and she spilled some of the details of the gathering.
"Kelsea had text me earlier in the day and was like, 'Hey, what are you doing tonight?' And I was like, 'Hanging out with you!'" Shorr reveals to Taste of Country. "It was super fun. Those girls are all so amazing."
Lauren Alaina, Lindsay Ell, RaeLynn and Cassadee Pope were there too, and the event and included festive decor like gold paper crowns. "Kelsea's attention to detail was pretty amazing, I was like, 'I love how extra all of this is,'" Shorr says. While there were plenty of laughs and good vibes to go around, the ToC RISERS artist also shares that there were deep conversations as the women discussed the triumphs and struggles they've faced in the music industry.
"Every single girl in that room is so nice and supportive and we all have our own challenges and success, but we were there to kind of talk about them all," she says, adding that it reminded her of the Congressional Women's Softball Game she recently performed at and people's desire to pit women against other women. "But we walked in the room and there was just like this immediate vulnerability and everyone was each other's best friend and I was just so ... kind of overwhelmed by it."
In between the heartfelt convos, the girls also shared some funny moments they've experienced, and according to Shorr, they're pretty epic. "We actually all went around in a circle and told our most embarrassing moment, so that was really good. I'm not going to repeat any of them, but just know that they were like, amazing," she says with a laugh. "For people who have to be in front of a camera for a living, we all embarrass ourselves a lot, like way more than the average human being, so I'm not sure who let us do this, but I'm thankful for it."
And what would a girl-power party be without a little rowdiness? It's not every day that friends in the music industry are able to get together, so when they do, you know it's a good time.
"What better way to become best friends with someone than taking way too many tequila shots and then texting about it the next day," Shorr jokes. The 22-year-old singer's current single, "Fight Like a Girl," is available now, with a new single set to drop sometime this summer.
