Kelsea Ballerini has dropped a remix of “Hole in the Bottle” from her album Kelsea, featuring country icon Shania Twain.
“I keep my cool I play by all the rules/ I swear ten minutes ago that bottle was full/ And I won’t cry/ About love gone wrong/ Cause tears would water down this ruby red I’m sippin’ on,” Shania sings in the remix.
“They say don’t meet your heroes.unless your hero is Shania Twain.then meet her, know her, and make music with her. She’s inspired me in every way and has become a mentor and friend and added some major sass and spice to ‘Hole in the Bottle’ the way only Shania could,” Ballerini said of the collaboration in a statement, via Rolling Stone.
“Kelsea and I have had some fun laughs together over the last couple of years! She joined me on stage back in 2017 when I headlined Stagecoach and we’ve had a chance to catch up over a glass of wine a couple of times since,” Twain said.
She added, “We’ve also sent pieces of songs back and forth to each other and I have to say, she’s an incredible raw talent. I love ‘Hole in the Bottle,’ it really speaks to my own sense of humor and it was so cool to get to do it with a friend.”
Ballerini had performed the hit single “Hole in the Bottle” at the 2020 CMA Awards on Wednesday night, November 11.
