Last Thursday (3/6), he stopped by to meet the staff and take a tour of the revered exhibits. The Michigan native is headed to the top of the Country Radio Charts with his fastest-rising, smash single “Helluva Life,” featured on his new album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY (Warner Bros. Records), available everywhere now. Ballard is currently touring all over the country and will join Jake Owen’s DAYS OF GOLD Tour for select dates through the summer. His dynamic set has caught the eye of many publications, including Country Weekly, who described the singer as “a true guitar hero,” and added that Ballard “exhibits an elegant supple style of playing rarely seen in these days of hard-rock country.” For upcoming tour dates and more information on Frankie Ballard, visit www.frankieballard.com.
