The disc will be available on December 20th at Williams Sonoma and then everywhere else in February.
Billboard magazine claims Kelsea Ballerini ripped an Internet troll, who told her to lose weight following her performance at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Thursday night. She posted; “Hi troll. listen. first of all, I’m not a model I’m a singer.

And for you to think it’s okay to comment on my weight or size is disgusting. I’m going to get a burger now. Bye.”
