Country music singer Kelsea Ballerini has found herself in hot water after her recent appearance at the CMT Awards, where she caused controversy with a drag queen stunt that left many traditionalists outraged.

Now, she’s paying the price as more than 400 radio stations have reportedly shunned her from their playlists.

The incident in question took place during Ballerini’s performance of her hit song “Hole in the Bottle.” Midway through the song, a group of drag queens joined Ballerini on stage, with the singer donning a feather boa and joining in on the dancing.

While many praised Ballerini for her inclusive and boundary-pushing performance, others were quick to condemn her for what they deemed a violation of country music’s conservative values.

Some critics even accused her of promoting an “agenda” that goes against the core beliefs of country music fans.

The fallout has been swift and severe for Ballerini, with reports indicating that over 400 radio stations across the country have stopped playing her music in response to the controversy.

Many of these stations have cited Ballerini’s drag queen stunt as the reason for their decision, with some even going so far as to call for a boycott of the singer’s music.

Ballerini has yet to comment publicly on the situation, but sources close to the singer say that she’s devastated by the backlash.

“Kelsea never intended to offend anyone with her performance,” one insider told us. “She just wanted to show her support for the LGBTQ community and celebrate diversity on stage.”

Despite the setback, Ballerini’s fans remain fiercely loyal, with many taking to social media to express their support for the singer.

And while the radio ban may have hurt her in the short term, it’s clear that Ballerini’s commitment to inclusion and diversity is something that her true fans will always stand behind.
