“How cool to be able to come home to Knoxville and celebrate this next big moment in my life with you! Central High is such a special place for me. I was in the glee club and got to perform in musicals on the same stage where I sang a song I wrote for the very first time,” Ballerini says in a statement to PEOPLE.

“This city … this high school … really helped shape my life and I can’t wait to share my new songs with you,” she adds.
