'Rolling Up the Welcome Mat' by Kelsea Ballerini

This news comes just a few days after the songstress unexpectedly released her most recent EP, Rolling Up the Welcome Mat. She also disclosed on February 16 that she will be the musical guest on the March 4 episode of Saturday Night Live, alongside NFL player and Super Bowl 2023 winner Travis Kelce as host.

As far as what fans can expect from the upcoming CMT Awards, the show will broadcast live April 2 at 8 p.m. ET from the Moody Center in Austin, Texas. While Kelsea isn't slated to perform during the ceremony, a report from People confirmed Kane and his wife Katelyn will perform their hit duet "Thank God" for the first time on live TV.
