After two wildly successful concert seasons at The Stage at Silverstar, how do you launch the brand new season?  With one of Nashville's hottest rising stars!

Frankie Ballard is set to hit The Stage on Friday, March 3 and tickets are already on sale!

Doors will open at 7:00 pm for those 21 and over.

Frankie "Frank Robert Ballard, IV" was actually a really good baseball player.  He spent two years playing ball at Mott Community College and then played for Western Michigan University.

But it was his love for music and guitars that would be Frankie's claim to fame.

In the summer of 2008 he signed up for Kenny Chesney's Next Big Star competition. After winning the competition for Michigan in 2008, Ballard opened several shows for Chesney at various Michigan venues.  He signed to Reprise Records Nashville in 2010 and released his debut single "Tell Me You Get Lonely."

Since then, Ballard has gone on to record several country staples including "Helluva Life," "Sunshine and Whiskey" and "Young and Crazy."

David Alvis, owner of The Stage, adds that "Ballard's good looks certainly don't hurt our chances of having a great opening night."  He says, "girls are gonna love him!"

Tickets are $20 in advance and on sale now HERE.
