Frankie Ballard will return to his home state for the holidays and bring his sold-out 5th annual Frankie Ballard’s Country Christmas show to the Kalamazoo State Theatre on Saturday, December 20th. Spreading the Christmas cheer, all of the proceeds from the singer-guitarist's energetic show will support the Van Andel Institute, a cancer research foundation based in Grand Rapids, MI. The special yearly event will include performances of many holiday classics and fan-favorites, including Ballard’s two #1 GOLD-certified hits, “Helluva Life” and “Sunshine & Whiskey.” The rising star closes out the year with continued momentum, surpassing well over 1.4 million tracks sold to date.
“There’s no better place to celebrate this time of year then with all the familiar faces of fans and friends,” shares Ballard. “I’m looking forward to bringing the best I have to this show – the lights might go off before I get off stage!”
Just off the road from his first headlining run – LIGHT ‘EM UP TOUR – as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch with Skype, the talented showman will amp it up even further next year on Florida Georgia Line's 2015 ANYTHING GOES Tour. A road warrior, Ballard has previously opened for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger.
Frankie recently shared co-hosting duties with CMT’s Cody Alan and Katie Cook during a special episode of CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown. While celebrating the top music videos in country music, fans got to see Ballard’s surprise reaction to his recent accolade, as he was presented with a GOLD plaque for selling over 500,000 copies of his latest #1 smash, “Sunshine & Whiskey.” CMT’s One Country Cornhole Challenge also brings out Ballard’s competitive side during the episode.
"Sunshine & Whiskey" is available here.
Frankie Ballard will get into the holiday spirit early with a guitar-fueled performance of the rocking seasonal classic "Run Run Rudolph" during A Hollywood Christmas At The Grove. Hosted by Nancy O’Dell (co-anchor of Entertainment Tonight) and filmed recently at The Grove in Los Angeles, the 12th annual show will also feature performances by Earth, Wind & Fire, Aloe Blacc, Darlene Love, along with appearances by Brooklyn Decker and Maria Shriver.
