Frankie Ballard

Friday April 7 at Moonshine Beach

CLICK HERE to Buy Tickets!

Frankie Ballard’s rise as an artist comes from the connection he makes through his music and the real emotion it creates with his listeners. Nowhere has that been more evident than in Ballard’s breakthrough Top 15 hit, “Helluva Life.” Helluva Life is the opener from Sunshine & Whiskey, an album that announces Ballard as one of the genre’s most nuanced singers and writers. He first graced the public spotlight with two Top 30 singles, “Tell Me You Get Lonely” and “A Buncha Girls,” appearing on the Grand Ole Opry and playing packed arenas opening for Kenny Chesney and on major tours with Taylor Swift and longtime idol, Bob Seger. Ballard says, the album “…represents the beginning of what people will call my sound.” It’s a mixture of influences. From country classics to blues legends and Southern rock to contemporary sounds, his sound is held together by his artistic personality. Like heroes including Willie Nelson and Hank Jr., Ballard makes everything he touches his own, a result, more than anything, of a decade of honing his craft on stages all over the country. Capturing the essence of his energetic stage shows, Sunshine & Whiskey represents the perfect re-emergence for a singer whose journey reflects all of life’s ups and downs.

Farming the fertile soil between mainstream country music and southern rock, the Morrison Brothers Band has the pedal to the metal in support of their new Self-Titled EP.

The Morrison Brothers Band comes to Nashville from Washington, D.C., after reaching the regional ceiling with three self-released albums, a growing digital presence and regular headlining shows at the legendary 1,200-capacity 9:30 Club. So while the move to Nashville seems abrupt, the truth is the brothers were already headed this way. But it took a flurry of events in a short period of time to light the fuse.

Dallas Davidson, Play It Again president and author of 23 No. 1 hits in country, also had a hand in shaping the band’s new EP. He provides three of the six songs, including lead single “Party at My House.” “It’s catchy, it’s fun, it makes you move,” Willie Morrison said.

Ticket Info: TBA

Born in Sneedville, Tennessee (a town that also lays claim as the birthplace of bluegrass pioneer Jimmy Martin), to a hard-rock-lovin’ preacher and contemporary-Christian-devoted teacher, Wallen showed his musical interests early, singing in front of the local congregation at age three and asking for a violin for his fifth birthday. He would soon switch to piano and later add guitar to his arsenal, though he never really imagined it was possible to make a career of it. “I didn’t think that was realistic because I had no clue about how the music business worked,” Wallen says. “Even living three hours away, I had no idea about Nashville.” Since then, he’s established himself with his recent success on The Voice, a record deal with Big Loud Records, and his latest EP release ‘The Way I Talk’.

Drew Baldridge 

Wednesday Night Live • September 27 at Moonshine Beach

Ticket Info: TBA

Known as much as a performer as a singer, Drew brings a rousing, energy-packed show to every opening or headlining date. “I am so very excited for my fans and future fans to hear my song ‘Dance With Ya.’ I went into the songwriting session with this melody in my head, and I said I want something that I could dance to. That’s what we created,” says Baldridge. “I want to build my career the way Eric Church built his. He has an incredible fan base that he gained out on the road, which is similar to what we are doing. “Team work makes the dream work’ is the motto me and my band go by.”

But, there is a definite R&B / soul twinge to the music of the West Virginia native that has people within the industry watching with interest.” – Billboard.com

JohnKing (1)

John King

Dates: TBA 

It is that drive, paired with raw talent and business savvy, that took John King out of a little mountain town in Georgia and into the spotlight opening for award-winning artists, playing over 150 dates per year, prior to having a booking agent.

John took serious interest in guitar when he realized that he could figure out how to play his favorite songs, but then went on to modify them. “That’s when I realized that I could write my own music. I started simply by playing familiar melodies and turning them into funny songs with lyrics about my friends.” In 2013, Black River Entertainment signed John King to their artist roster and one of the first steps since signing with Black River Entertainment is the newly signed deal with the Nashville based booking agency William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Currently, John is in the studio recording his debut album on Black River Entertainment and continues to tour.
