It’s been a great couple of weeks for country star Kelsea Ballerini. The 23-year-old snagged a spot on Forbes’ prestigious 30 Under 30 list.

Past honorees in the music category include Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Drake, and Taylor Swift (dubbed a “dream mentor” by Ballerini.)

Beyond this significant professional recognition, Ballerini just enjoyed a major personal milestone too. She and her boyfriend, Australian singer Morgan Evans, recently got engaged.

Check out this sweet post she shared on her Instagram announcing the news.

Looks like 2017 is shaping up to be a killer year for Kelsea!
