    Troye Sivan’s latest record Bloom has received plenty of love from critics, fans and fellow musicians alike. And one of those singing praises is rising country star Kelsea Ballerini, who’s shared her take on the album’s opener, “Seventeen.”

    Uploaded onto Instagram, Ballerini’s version of the slow-burning pop jam features her strumming on an acoustic guitar. The singer’s even added a dash of country flavor in there, too, with her signature twang. With her silky vocals front and center, the country starlet successfully delivers an emotional punch.

    “Smitten with this song on Troye Sivan’s new record. #ILOVEHIM,” Ballerini wrote in the IG post.
