Kelsea Ballerini and Kenny Chesney Win Musical Event and Music Video of the Year Ahead of the CMA Awards

Kelsea Ballerini and Kenny Chesney are already double winners at the 2021 CMA Awards.

The pair won Music Video and Musical Event of the Year for “Half of My Hometown.”

Kenny shared a sweet post on Instagram praising Kelsea following the win.

Growing up in East Tennessee, it’s a deeper kind of home. You have to have lived it to really understand. Kelsea knows that, knows how hard it is to leave to chase a dream like music. It’s what made being part of “Half of My Hometown” so special! I know that feeling of everyone having an opinion, hating leaving all that love and needing to go out and find your place in the songs. I’m thrilled for Kelsea to have won Musical Event and Music Video of the Year! She couldn’t deserve it more, and I’m honored to be a part of it.

Kelsea shared a tear-filled video on her Instagram story after receiving the news. This is her first CMA win.
