Kelsea Ballerini – “hole in the bottle”

“She has abused her system, and she’s paying for it.” The voiceover outro of Kelsea Ballerini’s new song “hole in the bottle” punctuates the swirling bartop anthem with a jolt of reality: hangovers are hell. But sometimes, they’re necessary to get over a heartbreak. It’s the buzz that makes it all worth it

Ballerini swings big, fusing radio country with a ‘90s fizz – a bit like a line dance underneath the neon moon. “I keep my cool, play by all the rules / I swear ten minutes ago that bottle was full / I won’t cry about love gone wrong / ‘Cause tears would water down this ruby red I’m sipping on…”

Electric guitar wails, Ballerini snaps her fingers, and all is right in the world.
