Nashville, TN – (September 28th, 2010) – Reprise Recording artist Frankie Ballard won’t be feeling lonely for long as he embarks on tour with fellow Michigan natives, Uncle Kracker and Ty Stone.

Now here's a real oddity. Take one host of an genre-specific outdoors show (Michael Waddell of the Outdoor Channel's Bone Collector), two hot Nashville songwriters (Rhett Akins and Dallas Davidson, two-thirds of the Peach Pickers). Have the former serve as inspiration to an album of hunting-inspired songs. The result? The Brotherhood Album, released through Reprise Records. It sounds bizarre on the surface, but if anyone's gonna review the album, it might as well be me.
