Frankie Ballard and Joel Crouse are coming to The Rodeo Club in San Jose this Wednesday night. I love Frankie Ballard. I saw him at The Rodeo Club after his first single, "Tell Me You Get Lonely", came out and there were about ten people in the whole place. It was still a great show. It was cool that there were so few people there. It sort of felt like a jam at someone's house. At that time, he was such a fresh, new artist no one knew who he was, so the lucky few that were there practically got a private show. Now, with the popularity of his new single, "Helluva Life", I am sure the place will be packed.
Joel Crouse will be opening the show for Frankie. I am sure you have heard his great single, "If You Want Some".
After winning Kenny Chesney's Next Big Star competition in 2008, Ballard opened shows for Chesney at various venues. He signed to Reprise Records Nashville in 2010 and released his debut single "Tell Me You Get Lonely", which debuted at Number 59 on the Hot Country Songs charts in June of 2010 and peaked at Number 33 in early 2011.
Ballard released his second single, "A Buncha Girls", in early 2011. This song has also made top 40. Both of his singles are included on his self-titled debut album, which was released in May 2011.
In 2013, Ballard moved to Warner Bros. Records and released his third single, "Helluva Life", via Warner Bros. Records. The song became his first Top 20 hit in December 2013. It is the lead single to his second album, Sunshine & Whiskey.
