Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. Frankie Ballard | For The Country Record | Page 2

Frankie Ballard ‘It All Started With A Beer’ – Single Review

frankie

For those of you who don’t already know who Frankie Ballard is, he is a relative country newcomer, who came onto the scene through Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star competition in 2008. Two years later he signed to Reprise Records Nashville and released his debut single “Tell Me You Get Lonely” and his self-titled debut record. In 2013, Ballard moved to Warner Bros. Records. His second record, Sunshine & Whiskey hit #5 on the Billboard US Country chart, and produced three #1 singles, not bad for a newcomer eh? Ballard recently released the lead single, “It All Started With A Beer”, from his upcoming third studio album. The single will no doubt follow the same path as Ballard’s three previous singles all the way to the top.

Singer/Guitarist Achieves Impressive Feat With Three Consecutive #1 Singles From Current Album SUNSHINE & WHISKEY

“Young & Crazy” Follows GOLD-Certified Hit Singles “Sunshine & Whiskey” And “Helluva Life” 

Warner Bros. Records/WMN artist Frankie Ballard was indeed young and crazy when he left his hometown of Battle Creek, MI for Nashville 10 years ago. A lot of hard work and determination led to the release of his full length album SUNSHINE & WHISKEY (February 2014) which debuted Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Eighteen months later, Ballard is celebrating his third consecutive #1 single from that album with “Young & Crazy” taking the top spot on both the Mediabase and Billboard Country Airplay Charts this week. “Young & Crazy” follows his two previous GOLD-certified #1 hits “Helluva Life” and “Sunshine & Whiskey.”

Once again we witness the reign of Sam Hunt as ‘House Party’ takes #1 on Hot Country Songs, Country Digital Songs, Country Streaming Songs, and moves up to #2 on Country Airplay. It’s inevitable that it’ll reach #1 on radio next week, while this week that honor goes to Frankie Ballard’s ‘Young & Crazy’, making three for three for him in this era. Elsewhere, Luke Bryan’s ‘Kill The Lights’ continues to dominates Top Country Albums as it sells around 90k in its second week, while the Elvis Presley compilation ‘Elvis Forever’ (issued by the US Postal Service) comes in at #2. New tracks come from The Band Perry, Carrie Underwood and Jessie James Decker. Check out the full charts below!

Frankie Ballard ‘Drinky Drink’ – EP Review

frankie ballard drinky drink ep

To coincide with the placement of his song ‘Drinky Drink’ (an album cut from his sophomore project ‘Sunshine & Whiskey’) in the Reese Witherspoon movie Hot Pursuit, Frankie Ballard has just recently released a new EP named after the track. Now, on the face of it, a title like ‘Drinky Drink’ is bound to raise some eyebrows and even a few alarm bells; it’s not likely to instil the best of confidence in folks that Frankie is making good music that is set apart from the bros. Of course ‘Drinky Drink’ is not exactly a heartfelt narrative about sufferers of the Great Depression in dust bowl America, but it is a solid party anthem that isn’t misogynistic, doesn’t include idiotic hip hop grooves and beats, and is more than tolerable as a modern country song.
