    FRANKIE BALLARD PERFORMS SOLD OUT SHOWS ON EUROPEAN TOUR

    Nashville, TN – (October 18, 2016) – Singer/songwriter Frankie Ballard just wrapped a scorching 10-date at-capacity European Tour with stops in Germany, Holland, Ireland, and Scotland. In addition to a sold out show on his first trip to Amsterdam, Ballard capped off the run with selling out the legendary Bush Hall in London.

    Ballard’s latest Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music album Nashville El Rio was released on June 10th to critical acclaim including performances on both The Today Show and Live with Kelly. The album has already been selected by Rolling Stone as one of the 25 Best Country and Americana albums of 2016 so far and The Tennessean as one of the 16 Best Nashville albums of 2016 so far. People Magazine and Entertainment Weekly also selected as “must” listens.

    Recorded at the famed Sonic Ranch, just south of El Paso in Tornillo, Texas, Ballard, band, and producer Marshall Altman left the comfort of Nashville in exchange for the opportunity to immerse themselves 24/7 creating this unique and fresh album.

    Rolling Stone describes the album in a recent story, “It's a different kind of album for the Michigan-born, Nashville-based songwriter, filled with country-rock anthems that have more in common with the heartland heroes of Ballard's youth — especially Bob Seger and John Mellencamp — than the outlaws and highwaymen whose names are so often cited by country music's younger class.”

    Ballard explains in the same article, "It's just my own brand of American music. There's rock & roll. There's country stories and country lyrics and country songs. And there's a lot of blues swagger and blues guitar playing. It's all those things together."
