GALVA, IL — Country music star Frankie Ballard is coming to Galva to perform at the first ever Back Road Music Festival on Saturday, August 16th, 2014.
Born in Battle Creek, MI. Ballard started to take an interest in music. After winning Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star Competition in Michigan, he soon found himself signed to Reprise Records. Since then, Ballard has released two albums, including his most recent, Sunshine & Whiskey. With all his recent success, Ballard is as passionate as ever about his live shows.
His hit single "Helluva Life" is currently No. 1 on the Mediabase Country Chart and Billboard Country Chart. It has sold almost 400,000 digital copies. It is also the opener on Sunshine & Whiskey, which is an album that announces Ballard as one of the genre’s most artful singers and writers. Ballard’s deep emotions are evident on this album, but it also includes fun songs such as “Whiskey” and “Drinky Drink.” The diversity of the record is what will keep you listening until the very last track.
