Kelsea Ballerini has taken the country music scene by storm over the last year — already winning ACM's New Female Artist of the Year, before the show even starts! This is only Kelsea's 2nd ACM Awards and she is both performing and up for one of the most coveted awards, Female Vocalist of the Year. We can't wait to see what Kelsea's got in store for the red carpet and her performance at the ACM's on Sunday, and we just had to ask about her pre-show secrets.

Tell us about the night before a big performance or red carpet event, how do you prep?

Lots of sleep, lots of water and obviously a big yummy breakfast to start the day off right.

Do you have a glam squad you always turn to? Do you have much input into your red carpet looks or do you put all the trust in your team?

It's so nice to have a team that are also my friends. It makes the stress of big events go away and we just have fun. I love collaborating with both Meegen and Krista in my red carpet looks!

Fake lashes: yay or nay? What's your favorite mascara for red carpet appearances?

YAY! I've been doing eyelash extensions for a year now, it makes me look awake when I'm definitely not, haha! I love CoverGirl mascara!

Beauty product(s) you cannot live without? 

Clarisonic, sugar lip balm, and dry shampoo!

What do you stash in your purse for an awards show or event? 

Cell phone, gum and a good nude lip color.

Do you indulge after a big night like the ACM's? How do you take your face off?

Chicken tenders with honey mustard and make-up wipes!
