FRANKIE BALLARD DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR TOP 15 & CLIMBING HIT “SUNSHINE & WHISKEY”
Nashville, TN (September 8, 2014) – Rising country music artist Frankie Ballard to world premiere the brand new music video for his Top 15-and-climbing hit “Sunshine & Whiskey” exclusively across CMT, CMT Pure, FrankieBallard.CMT.com and CMT Artists App today (9/8). The singer-guitarist was also tapped to be a part of CMT’s long-running LISTEN UP franchise, which launched last week at ListenUp.CMT.com.
Filmed in a small Pueblo village
outside of Los Angeles, CA, temperatures rise high with the video’s
sultry setting. Under the blazing desert sun, director Jack Guy weaves
together vignettes featuring a classic sports car, beautiful lady, and
whiskey, surrounded by Frankie and his guitar making it all come alive.
“Sunshine & Whiskey” has already
sold well over 300,000 copies to date and follows his first #1,
GOLD-certified smash “Helluva Life.” Both songs are from his latest
album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY (Warner Bros. Records), which ROLLING STONE COUNTRY noted as “required listening” and debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard
Country Albums Chart. Produced by Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard), the
project highlights Ballard’s unique blend of blues-infused, country
rock and his undeniable guitar prowess on every song.
This fall, the Battle Creek, MI,
native will embark on his first headlining run – LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR – as
part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch with Skypetour that taps today’s hottest emerging artists.
Known for his energetic live shows, he
has caught the eye of many superstars and landed coveted opening slots
for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime
idol Bob Seger.
