The holidays are coming early for Warner Bros. Records’ Frankie Ballard, who is celebrating the RIAA GOLD certification of his No. 1 hit single “Sunshine & Whiskey.”
Reveling in the success, the singer-guitarist recently opened up to Rolling Stone about the rise of his second consecutive gold-certified chart topper. Spreading the good cheer, Ballard performed last week at The Grove’s 12th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Spectacular in Los Angeles alongside Earth, Wind & Fire, Aloe Blacc, Pentatonix, Darlene Love and Fifth Harmony. Hosted by Entertainment Tonight’s Nancy O’Dell, fans who missed the event can catch the one-hour syndicated TV special A HOLLYWOOD CHRISTMAS AT THE GROVE across CBS affiliates nationwide between now and January 4, 2015 (check local listings).
A road warrior, Ballard is currently touring the nation on his first headlining trek – LIGHT ‘EM UP Tour – as part of the exclusive Live Nation Ones To Watch tour with Skype. The run stops in 19-cities through December with upcoming shows in Seattle, WA (12/6), San Diego, CA (12/11) and Anaheim, CA (12/12).
