Ballard was humbled by the opportunity to join the superstar on the first leg of her tour, covering seven cities and nine shows, including Detroit on June 11, which isn’t too far off from Battle Creek, Mich., where the singer was born and raised.

“I am so excited,” Ballard tells Taste of Country. “I am so lucky and so blessed that she wants me to open for her. It’s just so cool to have her stamp of approval. She’s so big and so loved, and everybody respects her and everything she says. Taylor is the biggest thing in country music right now — in all of music, really — so to have her sign off on me, in a way, and have me go out on tour with her is an incredible opportunity. I am so excited to get my music out there in front of her fans. I think it’s something they are going to dig.”
