Watch Frankie Ballard Perform ‘Sunshine and Whiskey’ at the Opry [Exclusive Premiere]
Frankie Ballard recently played the Grand Ole Opry -- the show that made country music famous -- and got the room on their feet with his hit single 'Sunshine and Whiskey.'
All eyes were on 31-year-old Ballard as he took the center circle at the Opry, waving to the crowd before him. The clip finds Ballard, donning a leather jacket, strutting to the microphone with his electric guitar. Before he begins playing, he sings the opening lyrics to the second single from his sophomore album of the same title.
Ballard's slicked-back hair and leather threads make him look more like a blues singer than a country star, but his lyrics suggest otherwise. The 'Helluva Life' hitmaker asked the crowd to do as his lyrics say and "crank it up to a hundred degrees," pointing toward the ceiling.
Ballard was all smiles through the chorus, eventually stepping out of the circle to play his guitar. He couldn't stay still on this night, kicked his feet and dancing around in excitement, because hey, it's not every day you get to play the Opry. The singer even asked for a little crowd involvement, picking up his mic from its holder to sing directly to the lucky audience.
