From Battle Creek, Michigan, Ballard first hit the public spotlight with two Top 30 singles, “Tell Me You Get Lonely” and “A Buncha Girls.” Ballard appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and played in packed arenas, opening for Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum. The country artist also toured with Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Segar.
He continued his extraordinary success when he released “Sunshine and Whiskey,” an album that announced Ballard as one of the genre’s most nuanced singer-songwriters. The opener to the album “Helluva Life” was Ballard’s breakthrough No. 1 hit that was followed by the title track and the album’s third single “Young and Crazy,” which also hit No. 1.
Ballard’s single “It All Started with a Beer” was released to country radio stations in 2015. In 2016, Ballard released the album “El Rio” as well as his hit single “Cigarette.”
