Taking his electrifying set overseas, Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville’s Frankie Ballard played two sold out shows at London’s Hoxton Bar and Brooklyn Bowl. Ballard brought huge crowds to his Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester shows as well. “It’s a dream come true to be this far from home and discover people who know your music,” said Ballard. “Hearing my lyrics sung with a British accent makes me so happy!” Ballard is heading to Germany next week for three more shows (see dates below) before returning to the U.S.
Ballard recently premiered the new music video for his current single “It All Started With A Beer,” the first single off his forthcoming album due later this year. Already creating buzz, the upcoming project was included in Rolling Stone’s “35 Most Anticipated Country Albums of 2016” list.
“Beer” is a look back at love and happiness that’s grown over time despite the bumps life offers along the way. It starts with a simple acoustic guitar played over a vibey organ line and builds like a couple swirling on the dance floor to one of the Michigan-born Ballard’s laidback guitar solos as he sings “Ain’t it crazy, baby, how we got here/it all started with a beer.”
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.”
