EXCLUSIVE: Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, And More Tell The Story Behind Their Tattoos

Ink that makes you think

November 13, 2018

The great thing about Country music is that it's filled with storytellers. Some of our favorite artists are masters at weaving a tale and building a world, letting us inside to watch it all unfold.

With that in mind, it only makes sense to ask them about the stories that are scrolled across their skin, the permanent reminder of a moment or a loved one, forever a part of them.

Whether it's Kelsea Ballerini and her "Amazing Grace" lyrics on her arm that transport her back to church, or Maren Morris who has a hummingbird and a longhorn, each for their own special reasons, some of our favorite artists have important ink and we needed to know more.
