Kelsea Ballerini Announces Extended Version Of ‘Rolling Up The Welcome Mat’

Kelsea Ballerini has announced the release date of an extended version of Rolling Up The Welcome Mat.

Ballerini has been teasing the extended version, Rolling Up The Welcome Mat (For Good), on social media, hinting at added verses that she’s performed live and extended tracks.

The extended version will include “Penthouse (Healed Version),” “Interlude (Full Length),” and “Blindsided (Yeah, Sure, Okay),” in addition to a new track that wasn’t included on the original EP, “How Do I Do This.”

The extended version of Rolling Up The Welcome Mat is due on August 11.

The original version was released on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2023. The EP is an intimate and honest musical expression of Ballerini’s post-divorce journey, including songs inspired by her heartbreak and healing process after her mid-2022 divorce from fellow country singer Morgan Evans.

“From the deepest and purest part of my heart, I ask that you help this be ours and let the music simply be the music, not dig back into the experience that it was written about nearly a year ago,” Kelsea wrote on social media. “As a songwriter, producer, artist i’m proud and protective of this EP, and as a woman and human also proud and protective of the new, happy season of life I’m in.

She added, “My real hope is for us to continue growing, healing, and evolving together with acceptance and kindness (even when we unleash our inner fire breathing dragon singing the new versions of these songs).”
