Frankie Ballard, Michigan’s sensational country music artist is bringing his signature sounds to the Paradise Rock Club!
Frank Robert Ballard IV was born in 1982 and is a singer-songwriter and guitarist. When he was 5 he would sing Elvis Presley songs with his dad but his interests changed to playing baseball until he was 18 (when he got his first guitar). He spent hours on his guitar and began alternating playing with blues bands on the weekends with baseball games. Music eventually took over and he dedicated himself to building a career in it. In 2008, he got a breakthrough on Kenny Chesney's Next Big Star regional competition in Michigan and went on to open for Chesney during the country star's Michigan tour dates. He’s released 2 studio albums, the latter of which (Sunshine and Whiskey) hit #5 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
Don’t miss your chance to see the artist with a gritty vocal approach and considerable guitar skills…who may be the best country-pop artist ever to come out of Battle Creek, Michigan.
