Frankie Ballard Debut Coming In May

Warner Bros.’s new guitar slinger Frankie Ballard is gearing up for the May 24 release of his debut project.

For the album he teamed with producer Michael Knox, known for work with Jason Aldean. The lead single “Tell Me You Get Lonely” resulted in a hit video, and strong lead-in to his current single “A Buncha Girls.” Ballard co-wrote several of the tracks for his release. As a songwriter, he also contributed a song to Billy Currington’s latest album.

Ballard’s self-titled effort has eight tracks, shorter than most full-length albums. Warner Bros. has been experimenting with offering shorter albums during the last year, particularly with the release of Blake Shelton’s Six-Paks. This allows new music to come out more frequently.

Ballard has toured with Uncle Kracker, and will open select dates for Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall of Famer Bob Seger and superstar Taylor Swift this summer.

Even before inking his record deal, Ballard was opening big-name shows. In 2008, the Michigan native won Kenny Chesney’s “Next Big Star” regional competition and opened for the star in Detroit.

Track listing:
1.   A Buncha Girls
2.   Single Again
3.   Place To Lay Your Head
4.   Tell Me You Get Lonely
5.   Get On Down The Road
6.   Sober Me Up
7.   Rescue Me
8.   Grandpa’s Farm
