Frankie Ballard will release a new album titled El Rio on June 10th.
The album was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, TX with producer Marshall Altman.
“I’m very proud of the work Marshall and I did on El Rio,” says Ballard in a prepared statement. “We busted our ass to be better. It’s been a spiritual journey. This album has already changed my life, and nobody’s heard it yet.”
The album’s first single, “It All Started With A Beer,” tells the story of a relationship that’s grown over time despite the bumps life offers along the way. “On the surface, it’s a love story about two folks meeting in a bar and having a beer,” said Ballard. “From there, the relationship blossomed into something long lasting and now they’re looking back, going, ‘Man, look at this great relationship we got, and it started so simply, with just a beer.’ So many people can relate to the idea.”
