On the Set with Kelsea Ballerini!
Queen of the Desert
Kelsea Ballerini shoots the video for her new song "Peter Pan" with model-actor Nick Davis. "The coolest thing about this video shoot is the scenery and the storyline – and all of it!" Ballerini tells PEOPLE.
Not So Plane Jane
"I'm obsessed with the colors and the landscape," says Ballerini of the shoot in the Las Vegas desert.
Ballerini's berry-colored gown was custom made for the shoot by designer Carol Hannah.
"I loved the idea of having a song about a breakup that wasn't some dramatic cheating or scandal moment," says Ballerini, who worked with director Kristin Barlowe on the shoot.
"It's the kind of thing where one person just can't emotionally match the other, and that's a sad kind of ending and heartbreak," says Ballerini. "And that's what I wanted this song and video to capture.”
Beautiful In Blue
"Sometimes the thrills of life or youth overrule the thrill of love until someone is truly ready to be in a relationship," says Ballerini, who also wore a blue romper custom designed by Cavanagh Baker. "And the video was so fun to show that side."
Her Inner Adventurer
"I felt like a stunt double!" says Ballerini. "I had to drive a stick shift, which I've never done before, and that in itself was difficult, but then I had to drive it next to a plane on a runway made of sand."
Love and Peace
"I don't really have a thrill seeker in me," says Ballerini, who donned a Lamarque leather jacket and drove a Cobra in the clip. "I enjoy driving fast, but it's also landed me in six car accidents so no, I'm not a thrill seeker."
That's a Wrap!
"The most challenging thing about shooting in the dessert is there is a lot of sand and dirt and grit," says Ballerini. "You're just covered."
