Time: 11:35P ET/10:35P CT
Details: Rising country artist Frankie Ballard will kick
off the New Year with a performance of his smash hit “Sunshine &
Whiskey." This marks the talented singer-guitarist's second consecutive
GOLD-certified #1 hit from his current album SUNSHINE & WHISKEY. Ballard will also give a sneak peek of his brand new single "Young & Crazy" that will hit country radio later this month.
Ballard is on the rise with his current album SUNSHINE & WHISKEY
(Warner Bros. Records) delivering consecutive #1, GOLD-certified
smashes “Helluva Life” and "Sunshine & Whiskey," debuting in the Top
5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and garnering critical acclaim
as “required listening” by ROLLING STONE.
Produced by Marshall Altman (Marc Broussard), the project captures
Ballard’s unique blend of blues-infused, country rock and his undeniable
guitar prowess on every song. The talented singer-guitarist made the
move to Nashville in 2009 from Battle Creek, MI, to pursue music. He
drew on his working class values, performing every chance he could,
honing his guitar and songwriting skills. He steadily built a loyal fan
base and took the time to grow as an artist and an individual. All of
these experiences culminated in selling over 1.4 million tracks to date.
Just off the road from his first headlining run – LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR –
as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch with Skype,
the talented showman will amp it up even further next year on Florida
Georgia Line's 2015 ANYTHING GOES Tour. A road warrior, Ballard has
previously opened for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor
Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger.
