On the heels of the June 7 release of her new single, “Legends,” Kelsea Ballerini partnered with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and NASH Icon for a night of karaoke at Ascend Amphitheater on Thursday evening (June 8). Three lucky karaoke contestants—Kaila Dakota, Chelsea Rhodes and Karen Meiers—got the chance to show off their pipes on the Cracker Barrel Country Roads Stage in the contest dubbed Kelsea Ballerini’s Legends of Country Karaoke, which was hosted by NASH Icon’s Jason Addams.
Karen’s cover of Reba McEntire’s “Fancy” netted her the $500 Visa gift card grand prize, while Chelsea and Kaila received $100 Cracker Barrel gift cards for their renditions of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” and Shania Twain’s “Any Man of Mine,” respectively.
“As part of the release of my new single, ‘Legends,’ I teamed up with my friends at Cracker Barrel and NASH Icon to host the Legends of Country Karaoke,” says Kelsea. “I had so much fun listening to the fans karaoke some of my favorite songs from country music legends.”
