Few artists in the history of country music have risen from obscurity to prominence with the speed of Warner Bros. Records guitar slinger Frankie Ballard. On his debut album for the label, this performer brings a bluesy, rocking edge to the country scene.
His talents as a vocalist, songwriter, instrumentalist and showman have already made him one of the genre’s most memorable new personalities.
In addition to its swiftness, Frankie Ballard’s ascent is notable for the seeming ease with which it has happened. In 2008, he signed with the first song publishing company he ever auditioned for.
In 2009, the first time he staged a showcase for record companies, he got a major-label contract.
