Kelsea Ballerini has a Barbie designed after her!

Barbie, who is celebrating its 60th anniversary, launched a "Be Anything" tour that is "inspiring this new generation of girls to let them know that they can be anything and they can dream big and set their sights on careers that are big and bold and they are capable of reaching those goals."

Other women in the U.S. being honored by Barbie include Yara Shahidi and tennis pro Naomi Osaka.

Ballerini described why Barbie's "Be Anything" campaign means so much to her and really resonates with not only her core beliefs but her music, too. 

She explains, "I've also tried to put female empowerment into every song I write and especially into every single I put out. I really wanted it to be a big part of my journey and to be able to partner with Barbie and use these few days to really empower these young girls."
Ballerini's specific Barbie is focused on her "Miss Me More" music video, which takes place in a boxing ring.

"The song is all about fighting for yourself after a relationship, but the more that I've kind of grown with the song, I made this video to be fighting against yourself, for yourself. No matter what chapter of life you are in, you're always up against yourself more than anything else."

The Barbie "Be Anything" Tour began this past weekend on Barbie's 60th anniversary at Walmart in Bentonville, Arkansas. The tour will come to 34 Walmart parking lots across the country.
