FRANKIE BALLARD SERVES UP “IT ALL STARTED WITH A BEER” TO COUNTRY RADIO
First single from 2016 album out now on iTunes and Spotify!
Frankie Ballard releases the first single from his forthcoming new album to radio today and it all starts with a cold one.
“It All Started With a Beer,” follows three consecutive No. 1 songs and is the first single from his as-yet-untitled third album, due early in 2016. The song is already available at iTunes and Spotify!
"This song is about how the biggest moments in our lives, the ones we find ourselves talking about down the road, usually start in an amazingly small, humble way,” says Ballard. “I'm proud of the way the production on this tune supports the lyric. When that slide guitar comes cruisin' in, I start feeling all different types of good...and thirsty. I hope people slow dance to this song and remember why they've tried so hard to stay together. "
“It All Started With a Beer” is a simple and sentimental look back at love and happiness that’s grown over time despite the bumps life offers along the way. It starts with a simple acoustic guitar played over a vibey organ line and builds like a couple swirling on the dance floor to one of the Michigan-born Ballard’s laidback guitar solos as he sings “Ain’t it crazy, baby, how we got here/it all started with a beer.”
Hear new music from Ballard this winter as he tours with Randy Houser on the We Went Tour and plays solo dates around the country, including his sixth annual Country Christmas Concert on Saturday, Dec. 19, in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The show will benefit the Detroit chapter of Notes for Notes®, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing youth with completely free access to music instruments, instruction and recording studio environments.
