Why Kelsea Ballerini Missed the 2024 Grammys Red Carpet

Not much can rain on Kelsea Ballerini’s Grammys parade except, well, actual rain. The Rolling Up the Welcome Mat singer almost missed the entire show thanks to the unexpected L.A. weather.

There wasn’t much of a welcome mat for Kelsea Ballerini.

Because it rained so hard on February 4, 2024, she just missed the Grammys. “It’s pouring outside,” Kelsea wrote on her Instagram Story as she tried to adopt the “keep calm and carry on” attitude. Her album Rolling Up the Welcome Mat was nominated for Best Country Album. “Traffic is stopped up.” We’re not going to walk the red carpet. We might make it to the show. “Maybe by the award.”

“What’re you going to do?” The singer, who dates Outer Banks’ Chase Stokes, went on, “You’re just gonna vibe.” “We’re just vibing.”

That’s the message she preached on her most recent album, which is about how her marriage to Morgan Evans ended. “This record is about things not panning out how you thought they would,” said Kelsea. “And this is God herself being like, ‘Remember?'”

But maybe she’ll remember to bring rain gear next time. In the end, she had to quickly get out of her car and walk through the rain to get into the Crypto.com Arena.

“It’s pouring,” Kelsea said as she fought her way inside in a Vera Wang dress and ALDO platform heels. “I believe my breasts are showing. My dress is wet. My shoes are wet. We’ll get through this.

Yes, she did.

The show went well even though she lost the trophy to Lainey Wilson’s Bell Bottom Country. Why? Because she hung out with your favorite stars like Chrissy Teigen, Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, and more last night. Okay, who could complain about that?

What are you upset about, though? The temperature. Because of that, Miley Cyrus almost missed accepting her first Grammy Award. Those who won can be found right here.

She said as she picked up her award for Best Pop Solo Performance, “I just got stuck in the rain and traffic and thought I was going to miss this moment.”

They were lucky that she didn’t, and now you don’t have to miss a thing either. Here are all the must-see red carpet moments from stars who didn’t have to wait because of rain.
