Kelsea Ballerini seems to be constantly on the up and up as her career keeps escalating to the next level with the announcement that she will be taking the GRAMMY stage to perform for the music crowd.

The country cutie told E! News that she would be added as a performer to the star-studded lineup for Music’s Biggest Night. Ballerini will be representing country music proudly alongside fellow artists like Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, Maren Morris and more. Also taking on performance duties for the show includes Adele, The Weeknd, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars.

Tweeting about her excitement over the thrilling announcement, Ballerini let all of her fans know how honored she feels to have this opportunity at such an early stage in her career.

“And just like that, it gets even more real. See you Sunday,” she wrote, with a retweet of the Recording Academy’s original announcement about the country star.

The budding superstar will perform alongside pop and soul artist Lukas Graham, who is best known for songs like “Mama Said” and “7 Years.” Graham is also a first-time nominee with three total nominations for the song “7 Years.”

Adding to her whirlwind news day, Ballerini visited The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to sing her current radio single, “Yeah Boy.” Looking gorgeous per usual, she grooved with the cutesy love song as she rocked the bubblegum number on her acoustic guitar.

Ballerini was nominated within the Best New Artist category for the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. The show will air live on Sunday, February 12, at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
