Ballard has previously opened select dates for the likes of Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift and longtime idol Bob Seger. Since releasing his first No. 1, “Helluva Life,” the Battle Creek, Mich., native has gone on to release “Sunshine & Whiskey,” which has risen to No. 28 on the MusicRow Chart.
