Country Music News

Kelsea Ballerini teased a brand new song on her TikTok, and she sang a bit of it along with her best friend by her side, and by the sounds of it, we may just have another country music murder song on our hands.

Kelsea posted a short clip of the new tune on TikTok. The lyrics include, “I keep all your secrets by the dozen / you don’t wear my skeleton sleeve / Hypothetically if you ever kill your husband / hand on the bible I’d be lying through my teeth.”

She captioned the post, “Sooo a Thelma and Louise best friend bop orrrr?” The new song “If You Go Down (I’m Going Down Too)” will be on her new album Subject To Change which will be out on September 23.

Fans are loving the new 13-second clip. One fan commented, “A few seconds in, and I’ve already decided it’s a bop.” Another fan wrote, “KELSEA, SLAY, THIS SONG IS FIRE.” One fan, whose TikTok name is just KY, said, “I’m obsessed with this.”

♬ IF YOU GO DOWN (I'M GOIN' DOWN TOO) - Kelsea Ballerini

Kelsea posted an image of the song’s single cover on Instagram. She wrote, “It’s giving Thelma, and Louise Mary Anne and Wanda ride or die through calm and chaos a thank god for friends bippity bop.”

Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild reacted by saying, “Yes.”

One fan gushed, “CAN NOT WAIT!!!! Soooooo EXCITED your blessing our ears w hit after hit!!”

“Mary Anne and Wanda,” of course, is a reference to the two characters in the Chicks’ 1999 classic “Goodbye Earl.” In the song, best friends Mary Anne and Wanda doing away with an abusive husband. The lyrics include: “Goodbye, Earl / Those black-eyed peas / They tasted alright to me, Earl / You feelin’ weak? / Why don’t you lay down and sleep, Earl / Ain’t it dark wrapped up in that tarp, Earl.”
