Nashville, TN - (October 8, 2015) – Warner Bros. Records’ Frankie Ballard will rock around the Kalamazoo State Theatre with his 6th Annual Country Christmas Concert on Saturday, December 19th in Kalamazoo, MI. Bringing the spirit of the season to his hometown, all of the proceeds from the show will benefit the Detroit chapter of Notes for Notes®, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing youth with completely free access to music instruments, instruction and recording studio environments so that music may become a profoundly positive experience in their lives.

"I’m so proud to be partnering up with Notes for Notes this year at our Christmas show,” shares Frankie Ballard. “All of the proceeds will go towards beautiful music studios for youth to learn and enjoy. Hope to bring home 2015 with you there, in Kalamazoo!"

The highly-anticipated show will include performances of holiday classics and Ballard’s chart-topping hits; “Helluva Life,” “Sunshine & Whiskey” and “Young & Crazy.” Tickets will go on sale to the public tomorrow, October 9th starting at 10:00 a.m. local time at www.FrankieBallard.com.

A self-taught guitar ace, Ballard first supported Notes for Notes earlier this year when he joined forces with the CMA Foundation, Chevrolet and Warner Music Nashville to officially open a new recording studio at the S.A.Y. Detroit PLAY Center in Detroit, near his hometown of Battle Creek, MI.  

Ballard is currently working with producer Marshall Altman on his next full-length album and is expected to release the lead track later this year. The project is the follow-up to SUNSHINE & WHISKEY, which delivered three consecutive #1 smashes - GOLD-certified hits “Helluva Life,” "Sunshine & Whiskey" and the latest "Young & Crazy" – and debuted Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.

Playing over 400 shows across North America in the past two years, the "headliner in the making" (ROLLING STONE) is currently on Florida Georgia Line's 2015 ANYTHING GOES Tour and this winter will join Randy Houser's WE WENT Tour as direct support. He has previously opened for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger. 

Ballard has made his mark on the Country music scene with selling more than 1.8 million tracks and tallying over 87 million total streams to date. Moving to Nashville in 2009 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, defining his unique blend of blues-infused, country rock which producer Marshall Altman captured throughout the album SUNSHINE & WHISKEY. Racking up the media acclaim for his fresh sound and retro vibe, The TENNESSEAN has named Ballard “Country Music's lovable renegade” while ROLLING STONE hailed him as “Required listening.”
