Kelsea Ballerini posted several images and videos of her returning to Central High School in Knoxville, Tennessee, where she attended a reunion.

Kelsea, who won the “World Traveler” honor at the reunion, wrote along with the post on Instagram, “technically, i didn’t graduate from this high school. i only spent my freshman and sophomore year there before moving to Nashville. but so much life happened here. crushes. music. friendship. heartbreak. insecurity. drive. the first time I played a song I wrote for anyone was in this auditorium. there was tragedy, and there was magic…and it made leaving this community to go chase down this naive knowingness the truest meaning of bittersweet.”

She added, “so after 13 years of being in Nashville, i decided to go to my reunion to be nostalgic with the people that made me love my hometown like i do. go bobcats for effing ever.”
