Kelsea Ballerini has been decking the halls in preparation for the holiday season and will be ringing in the new year by headline the West Coast celebration of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on Dec. 31.

Ballerini will be performing alongside A-lister acts like The Chainsmokers, Foster the People, Dua Lipa, Macklemore, and Charlie Puth.

Hosted by Ryan Seacrest, the 5 ½ hour-long special is stacked with top-tier talent. “For 47 years, New Year’s Rockin’ Eve has been America’s biggest and most watched party of the year,” said Mark Bracco, executive producer and executive vice president of programming & development for Dick Clark Productions in a statement. “We’re thrilled that Ryan, Jenny, Ciara, and Lucy are back to help America usher in the New Year, along with a stellar lineup of the year’s hottest musical artists.”

Performers for the Time Square and New Orleans celebrations will be announced in the coming weeks. The New Year’s Eve countdown event begins live from New York City at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC.

Ballerini will waste no time launching into 2019 as she joins Kelly Clarkson on her 'Meaning of Life Tour,' and begin her own headlining 'The Miss Me More' arena tour alongside Brett Young in the spring.
