Frankie Ballard, country guitarist-singer, comes to us from Battle Creek, MI. “Home of the pop tart” as Frankie likes to say. It was his claim to fame, until now. He released his new album, Sunshine and Whiskey, last month and won over even the toughest of music critics. The album is a blend both vocally and with the colorful and sometimes dark storytelling infused throughout the album. Frankie’s vocals have an organic raspy sound that pairs beautifully with the bluesy hooks throughout the album.
“Helluva Life”, the debut single off the album, tells a laid- back story of some of life’s simpler moments. The song has connected with fans and is currently sitting at #3 on Billboard Country Airplay Chart.
And we all have faith, and we all have hope,
But we’re all a little lost in the same damn boat.
It’s a helluva life, yeah it’s a helluva life.
Frankie Ballard is giving us a sneak peak into exclusive behind the scenes footage from video set for “Helluva Life.” We did a #CMchat Twitterview with Frankie when his album came out. Here is the recap.
