Kelsea Ballerini released her fourth studio album, “Subject to Change” on September 23, shortly after the country superstar announced her split from fellow country singer Morgan Evans.
The last album Ballerini released was his 2020 album “Kelsea”. She posted on Instagram her feelings about the album release and how proud she is of the work she put into it.
“If I’m being honest, growing up hurts a little like hell…and to me, it sounds like this. Inner observations, drunken conversations, staunch friendships, jumping to hope, owning shame, doing the best you can, discovering the good things is not always great, falling flat on your face, being a show pony, taking inventory of what you have…and ultimately welcoming change when it comes,” Ballerini wrote in her Instagram post. .
“I’m proud of this record and the story it tells,” she continued. “here are my last two years, and here is the page turn. SUBJECT TO CHANGE NOW AVAILABLE.”

The new album features 15 songs, including “Love is a Cowboy,” “Heartfirst,” “Marilyn,” and “You’re Drunk, Go Home,” which features Kelly Clarkson and Carly Pearce.
Ballerini spoke with Yahoo! Entertainment about how personal “Subject to Change” is to her.
“Obviously, we’ve all changed a lot in the last few years, because life has forced us to… And I feel like in the last few years, in my twenties, I’ve grown a lot,” Ballerini said. “I learned a lot about myself in this extra space that we’ve been forced into. And I loved that ‘Subject to Change’ represented my life. It represented everyone’s life, and it took me thematically through the story I was writing” .
He also talked about his process of making the album and trying to decide how personal he wanted it to be.
“We were just going back and forth, like, ‘Do we make it wide, or do we just make it a lot like me?’ And we ended up going very inward, very personal, to set the tone for the whole record.”
Ballerini went through a major life change prior to the album’s release when she divorced after almost five years of marriage. Ballerini and Evans announced their separation in August. The two began dating in 2016 after meeting while co-hosting the Country Music Channel Awards and married the following year.
