Nashville, TN (July 31, 2014) – Warner Bros. Records’ Frankie Ballard is preparing for his first headlining run – LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR – as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch with Skype tour
that taps today’s hottest emerging artists. Kicking off October 19 in
Minneapolis, MN, the dynamic tour will stop in 19-cities across the
country. Supporting Ballard will be Republic Nashville’s newly signed
band A Thousand Horses and David Nail to co-headline select dates.
“So pumped to be taking my full show
on the road this fall,” exclaims Ballard. “Killer venues, all my buddies
and no rules … I feel like somebody gave me the keys to the castle!”
Known for his energetic live shows,
Ballard has caught the eye of many superstars and landed coveted opening
slots for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and
longtime idol Bob Seger.
Since releasing his first #1, GOLD-certified smash “Helluva Life,”
Ballard has lit up the country music scene. The Battle Creek, MI, native
continues the hot streak with follow-up anthem “Sunshine &
Whiskey.” The infectious, summer tune shot to Top 10 on the iTunes
Country Songs Chart and is already Top 25-and-climbing at Country radio.
Both songs are featured on his latest album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY, which debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard
Country Albums Chart. Produced by Marshall Altman (Mark Broussard), the
project captures the newcomer’s unique blend of blues-infused, country
rock and his undeniable guitar prowess on every song.
