Kelsea Ballerini Scores 5th No. 1 Single With “Miss Me More”

Kelsea Ballerini is once again in familiar territory.

The Tennessee native scored her fifth career No. 1 single as “Miss Me More” ascended to the top spot on the Mediabase chart, following previous No. 1 singles “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Dibs,” “Peter Pan” and “Legends.”

“Miss Me More,” which was penned by Kelsea, David Hodges and Forest Glen Whitehead, is the third single from Kelsea’s 2017 sophomore album, Unapologetically.

“Whether it’s a partner, friend, colleague, situation or chapter of life, sometimes we lose a piece of ourselves to someone,” says Kelsea. “This song is all about choosing to spend our energy in a way that lets us be the best version of ourselves for the right people—when they come along. I’m so proud that this song and message got the megaphone of country radio. Thank you so much for this number one.”

With the new chart-topper, Kelsea is the first solo female artist to reach No. 1 on the country charts in more than 15 months. The last to do it? Kelsea in February 2018 with “Legends.”
