Taking his electrifying set overseas, Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville’s Frankie Ballard played two sold out shows at London’s Hoxton Bar and Brooklyn Bowl. Ballard brought huge crowds to his Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester shows as well.

“It’s a dream come true to be this far from home and discover people who know your music,” said Ballard. “Hearing my lyrics sung with a British accent makes me so happy!”

Ballard is heading to Germany next week for three more shows before returning to the U.S.
