Chase Stokes Cried At Kelsea Ballerini’s First Arena Hometown Show


Kelsea Ballerini’s first arena headline show in her hometown made boyfriend Chase Stokes get emotional.

The Outer Banks star opened up to People about seeing the Knoxville, Tennessee native perform in her hometown for her Heartfirst Tour. He told the outlet Monday (November 6th), “I’m still recouping my hearing from how loud it was … for her to go back to her hometown and to sell out an arena, like that stage — it was the coolest thing. I cried the whole time.”

Stokes added, “Her mom was there and her sister was there, her family was there. It’s a magical moment when you see somebody who at 12 years old wanted to have this dream and then to go back to her hometown and do exactly what she set out to do — I mean there’s no way to be more proud.”

Ballerini publicly confirmed the two were dating on the Call Her Daddy podcast in February.
