Kelsea Ballerini Releases New Song, “What I Have,” Ahead of New Album [LISTEN]

Kelsea Ballerini released a new song on Friday (Sept 9) about appreciating the blessings in your life.

As the old saying goes, “comparison is the thief of joy,” and “What I Have” touches on that sentiment with lyrics like, “My neighbor’s grass is the hit of the street / But that don’t mean mine ain’t just as green / I’ve been comparin’ shiny new toys / It’s just the root of the thief of my joy / I know that’s just the pony show.”

Ballerini performed the song for the first time in January at the Grand Ole Opry. She told the audience that the pandemic “made you look at what you have differently. For me, I’ve started to really appreciate the little things a lot more,” she said, according to ABC.
