Chances are at one time or another you have heard the song “Closer’ by The Chainsmokers. Well, now the song has a different sound thanks to Kelsea Ballerini.
During one of her sets on Thomas Rhett’s Home Team Tour, Kelsea Ballerini decided to take a step away from her catalog of music and perform a song that has dominated the airwaves and the charts. With just her guitar, her vocals and the vocals of the crowd, the 23-year-old singer put her own acoustic spin on the track.
This is not the first time Ballerini has decided to take on a pop song or a song by The Chainsmokers. The “Yeah Boy” singer joined Rhett, Russell Dickerson and Ryan Hurd, all of whom are a part of the Home Team Tour, back in February to perform Bruno Mars’ “24K Magic.” In January, Ballerini shared a video on social media of herself putting an acoustic spin on The Chainsmokers’ song “Paris.”
Both Ballerini and the DJ duo have more than just the country singer performing covers of their songs. At the 59th Grammy Awards last February, both Ballerini and The Chainsmokers were nominated for the Best New Artist Award.
