Frankie Ballard has played over 400 shows in the last two years in North America alone and isn’t slowing down any time soon. The Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville recording artist is planning to add to that number this March, this time taking his high energy show overseas to the United Kingdom and Germany. To kick things off, Ballard will make his first stops March 11 and 13 in London for the C2C: Country to Country annual multi-day country music festival. Fans will have a chance to see Ballard performing on the Yamaha Stage and as one of the three official C2C After Show Party artists. The festival takes place each March and, after just two years, has become Europe’s largest country music festival, welcoming over 50,000 fans across the weekend.
“This is my first time overseas, and if I’m honest, I’m both nervous and excited to see how we’re received,” said Ballard. “What can I say? It’s a big deal for me. I know one thing though, we’re gonna be bringin’ the heat.”
“It All Started With A Beer,” the current single from his forthcoming album due later this year, is currently climbing the radio charts. The project is already creating buzz, with Rolling Stone including it in their “35 Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2016” list and noting that “Beer” is “a slow-dance ballad that swings, swoons and grooves.” The song is available at iTunes and Spotify.
His previous album, Sunshine & Whiskey, produced three consecutive no. 1 singles – the platinum-certified “Sunshine & Whiskey,” the gold-certified “Helluva Life,” and one of the Top 3 Billboard Country Airplay songs of 2015, “Young & Crazy.”
