It has been a helluva ride for country guitarist-singer Frankie Ballard, who tops both the Mediabase Country Chart and Billboard Country Chart this week, with his smash “Helluva Life.” Ballard’s fastest rising single to date has earned him his first ever #1 single, with nearly 400,000 digital copies sold.
“My heart is overflowing,” shares Ballard. “I’m so thankful to Country Radio for taking a chance on this song. I’m more than happy to play this one for the rest of my helluva life!”
Tune in to NBC’s TODAY on April 2nd, to see Ballard perform the top-selling single featured on his new album, SUNSHINE & WHISKEY (Warner Bros. Records), available everywhere now.
The Michigan native is currently touring all over the country and will join Jake Owen’s DAYS OF GOLD Tour for select dates through the summer. His dynamic set has caught the eye of many publications, including Country Weekly, who described the singer as “a true guitar hero,” and added that Ballard “exhibits an elegant supple style of playing rarely seen in these days of hard-rock country.”
