Warner Brothers recording artist Frankie Ballard is no stranger to the tour life. Early in his country music career, Frankie landed coveted opening slots for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, and Bob Seger. Frankie has now announced that he is heading out on his first headlining tour this Fall.
The Light ‘Em Up Tour is included as part of Live Nation’s Ones To Watch with Skype Tour that celebrates and features new and emerging artists. Frankie will be kicking his tour off October 16th in Minneapolis as the first of nineteen cities across the United States. Joining Frankie’s Light ‘Em Up Tour will be A Thousand Horses, as well as David Nail (as a co-headliner) on select dates.
When asked about his new tour, Frankie stated he is “so pumped to be taking my full show on the road this Fall. Killer venues, all my buddies and no rules … I feel like somebody gave me the keys to the castle!”
