Frankie Ballard

Frankie Ballard's authentic country voice and exceptional guitar skills have made him one of the most promising up-and-coming artists in country music. The Michigan native first came to prominence by winning Kenny Chesney's Next Big Star competition in 2008, and signed with Reprise Records in 2010. He released his self-titled debut album in 2011, and promoted two singles from it, but it wasn't until 2014's 'Sunshine & Whiskey' that he really broke through at country radio. He scored hits with the title song, "Helluva Life" and "Young & Crazy," and recently released "It All Started With a Beer," the lead single from his upcoming third studio album, 'El Rio.'
