Under the blazing desert sun, director Jack Guy weaves together vignettes featuring a classic sports car, beautiful lady, and whiskey, surrounded by Frankie and his guitar making it all come alive.

    “Sunshine & Whiskey” has already sold well over 300,000 copies to date and follows his first #1, GOLD-certified smash “Helluva Life.” Both songs are from his latest album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY (Warner Bros. Records), which ROLLING STONE COUNTRY noted as “required listening” and debuted in the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Produced by Marshall Altman (Mark Broussard), the project highlights Ballard’s unique blend of blues-infused, country rock and his undeniable guitar prowess on every song.

    This fall, the Battle Creek, MI, native will embark on 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.

    Known for his energetic live shows, he 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.

    SUNSHINE & WHISKEY is now available on iTunes.
