Kelsea Ballerini will be busting out her guitar to play her top hits to hundreds of Department of Defense ID cardholders anticipated to attend the free Fourth of July Spectacular at Weyand Field.

The country-pop songwriter is scheduled to take the stage at Schofield Barracks, July 3. Her album, “The First Time” is available by digital download, CD and on vinyl.

Her professional career launched when she was signed to Black River Entertainment when she was only 19 years old. Her latest single this year, “Peter Pan,” reached 77,000 sales in May.

Ballerini’s performance at Schofield Barracks isn’t the first time she’s played to military audiences.

In 2015, she was one of several opening acts for the “Six String Salute to the Champs” held at Fort Benning, Ga.

She has also performed at several prestigious country music venues, including the Grand Ole Opry. She has also been on tour with several pop and country acts, including Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes, Sam Hunt and Rascal Flatts.

In March 2016 Ballerini won the Academy of Country Music Award for new female vocalist. Previous winners of the award include Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert.
