Singer/songwriter Frankie Ballard’s latest album El Rio was released last year to critical acclaim via Warner Bros. Records/Warner Music Nashville. With national performances on both The Today Show and Live with Kelly, the album was selected by Rolling Stone as one of the 25 Best Country and Americana albums of 2016 and People magazine and Entertainment Weekly also selected it as a “must” listen. Frankie’s new take on the classic Bob Seger song “You’ll Accomp’ny Me” from the new album is on fire at streaming services with over 16 million streams on Spotify to date. Taste of Country raves about the song is, “flush with electric guitar solos that are only matched in intensity by the singer’s vocals.”

Frankie’s previous album, Sunshine & Whiskey, produced three consecutive no. 1 singles–the platinum-certified “Sunshine & Whiskey,” the gold-certified “Helluva Life,” and one of the Top 3 Billboard Country Airplay songs of 2015, “Young & Crazy.” Ballard has combined album sales and single/album streaming of over 450,000 to date with over 150 million total streams across all streaming platforms and 90 million streams at Spotify.

Known for igniting a Rock & Roll Renaissance, Frankie’s live show has been met with rave reviews. Billboard describes his songs live as “fused with rock ‘n’ roll guitar riffs” and Rolling Stone recently added he, “showed off his classic rock chops and Midwestern roots.” Ballard continues his electrifying set on the road in 2017 touring across the world.
