Ballerini made it to the Grammys just in time to hang out with with the "Anti-Hero" singer inside the awards show
The Los Angeles weather may have rained on Kelsea Ballerini's Grammys parade — but only for a little bit, as her moment with Taylor Swift made up for it!
As fans waited for the country singer, 30, to make her appearance on the red carpet, Ballerini was stuck in traffic due to the downpour, as she reported on her Instagram.
However, Ballerini's full look received all the attention when she eventually showed up at the Crpyto.com Stadium, where she linked up with the Midnights singer, 34, inside the venue.
Ballerini — who is nominated for best country album for Rolling Up the Welcome Mat — wore a black Vera Wang gown with sheer panels on her butt, as well as flower petal appliqués trailing down the train and bodice. The design also showed lots of skin with its strappy silhouette. She styled the number with Simon G jewelry and a sleek ponytail.
Meanwhile, Swift — who not only won best pop vocal album, but also announced her new album The Tortured Poets Department during her acceptance speech — rocked a white Schiaparelli gown, black opera gloves and a number of telling accessories.
Ballerini was not accompanied by her boyfriend of one year, Chase Stokes, because he's currently busy filming Outer Banks. While at -
the ASCAP Grammy Brunch on Feb. 2, she told PEOPLE that the actor would be supporting her "from a distance."
Stokes did in fact do that, as he took to Ballerini's comment section on Instagram to show his love for her sexy look. "Yeaaaaah. I’m..so not okay," he wrote under a photo of the songstress in her Grammys outfit.

Still, Ballerini is focused on celebrating the small and big milestones.
"I think I have this problem where I can never look around. I keep looking up, and I am trying to find a healthy balance of that because there's so much more that I want to do in so many areas. But I do feel like I've gotten to take a beat and appreciate what the last couple of years have brought into my life," she told PEOPLE at the ASCAP Grammy Brunch.
"I think it's really encouraged me to stay diligent in my songwriting and protect the honesty that I found inRolling Up the Welcome Matmoving forward," continued Ballerini. "And that's the whole season I'm in right now is figuring what that sounds like next."
