Providing an early start to Callaway Gardens® Summer Sunset Music Series, country music rising star Frankie Ballard will be performing at Callaway Gardens’ Robin Lake Beach on Saturday, May 3, 2014, at 6 p.m.
“Frankie is a little classic country, a little blues, and a little southern rock,” said concert producer Buddy Wallace of Wallace Productions. “His first No. 1 hit single ‘Helluva Life,’ is from his newly released debut record Sunshine & Whiskey. This is one show you won’t want to miss.”
Special guests will be nationally-syndicated radio host Bobby Bones with his band, The Raging Idiots; Lindsay Ell; and Georgia native and Georgia Music Awards Winner Ricky Gunn, who is bringing a fresh new head-bobbing, boot-stomping sound to country music. Gunn’s new record, “King of this Town,” will be out this Spring.
