With his latest hit "Helluva Life" tearing up the country singles chart, one can't help but wonder when the new Frankie Ballard album will hit stores. Soon!
"It’s almost done," Ballard tells Roughstock with a grin. "It’s very close!"
For the album's content, Ballard took part in writing some of the tunes, but also had both ears open to any other tunes that would work for his sound and style.
"I was writing for it, definitely, but I thought I needed great songs," Ballard explains. "The truth of it is, I’m not always going to write the greatest songs. My songs had to compete to get on this project. I didn’t write ‘Helluva Life,’ but had I been too prideful of my own songwriting, I would have never given this song a chance, and that would’ve been a mistake. There’s a good mixture of both my songs and outside songs on this project."
This week, "Helluva Life" is in the Top 40 and climbing.
