Like many popular entertainers, Ballerini is excited to hit the road for some shows this summer with her adorable pup Dibs, especially after her tour bus got a complete makeover on Netflix. Get organized with The Home Edit.
“I’ve been touring pretty uninterrupted — obviously, except for the last few years — since I was 20,” she said. “Now I have my own bus, so everything is pink and smells good.”
As for the sequel to Ballerini, it seeks to release a page from Dolly Parton‘s book, having recently performed alongside the music icon at the 2022 ACM Awards.
“She’s a composer, she’s a singer, she’s a businesswoman, she’s an activist, she owns amusement parks, she’s an actress,” Ballerini said. “Watching someone like her helps me say, ‘You can be more than one thing and that can be celebrated.'”
With everything Parton has accomplished throughout her storied career, there was one thing Ballerini made her do that she had never done before: create a TikTok.
“Not to honk my horn myself, but it’s the only TikTok Dolly has ever done. I asked her very nicely,” Ballerini revealed. “I’m from East Tennessee, so not only is she a country music icon, but I grew up going to Dollywood. She’s everything, you know?”
The 2022 CMT Music Awards will air Monday, April 11 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
