The country singer added, “He’s gonna do a special show tonight for Kobe Bryant.” Jimmy Kimmel did a tribute episode for the late NBA star who died in a helicopter crash on January 26 alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna. The late night talk show host also gave his condolences to the seven other people who died on the flight.

The “Miss Me More” singer received some backlash after she took to social media on January 16 and slammed a country radio station for their sexist airplay policy. The station claimed they “cannot play two females back to back. Not even Lady Antebellum or Little Big Town against another female.”

“To all the ladies that bust their a**es to have half the opportunities that men do, I'm really sorry that in 2020, after YEARS of conversation of equal play, there are still some companies that make their stations play by these rules,” Kelsea wrote on Twitter.

She reposted the tweet on Instagram and said, “There is still inequality in airplay for women. And it’s my job to say it out loud and post about it, because of the girls moving to Nashville (or wherever) that are ready to outrun and outwork and outplay everyone. They deserve to know that they have the same shot as the guys moving here to do the same.”

“Blah blah blah. I don’t even listen to women music period but why do they need to play more women songs in a row when the industry is males,” one person wrote on Twitter. “More males equal more male songs. I’m tired of women whining all the time about unfair treatment. It’s definitely more than that.” Another person commented, “Can’t handle any criticism huh? Typical feminist.”
