Like many popular artists, Ballerini is excited to be hitting the road for some shows this summer with her adorable pup Dibs, especially after her tour bus got a total makeover on Netflix’s Get Organized with The Home Edit.
“I’ve been touring pretty non-stop—obviously, except for the last few years—since I was 20,” she said. “Now I have my own bus, so everything’s pink and smells good.”
As for what’s next for Ballerini, she is looking to take a page out of Dolly Parton‘s book, having recently performed alongside the music icon at the 2022 ACM Awards.
“She’s a songwriter, she’s a singer, she’s a businesswoman, she’s an activist, she owns amusement parks, she’s an actress,” Ballerini said. “Looking to someone like her, it just helps me go, ‘You can be more than one thing and that can be celebrated.'”
With all that Parton has accomplished throughout her legendary career, there was one thing Ballerini got her to do that she had never done before: make a TikTok.
“Not to toot my own horn, but that was the only TikTok Dolly has ever done. I asked her very nicely,” Ballerini revealed. “I’m from East Tennessee, so not only is she such a country music icon, but I grew up going to Dollywood. She’s just everything, you know?”
The 2022 CMT Music Awards air Monday, April 11 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
