Frankie Ballard reached the top spot on the country singles charts recently with his smash hit Helluva Life. The song was well deserving of the top spot on the charts. Looking back when I first reviewed the song on here last summer I thought it would reach the top 20 on the charts. Shows how much I know.
Here is the new one from Frankie. It’s another fun song with plenty to like. Check it out.
Sunshine & Whiskey – Frankie Ballard
This is just a fun country song. It’s perfect for the style Frankie has been building for himself on this first record. There is a cleverness to him and when you listen to the album you just get the feeling that it’s about living life in a laid back way.
Here we have a song about sunshine and whiskey. It’s about falling in love and those feelings you get of being on a high when you’re out in the sun chilling with a drink and giving the one your’e falling for a few kisses. It’s that kind of song. It’s summer love. It’s young passion. There is possibly no greater feeling when you’re in that spot.
Frankie Ballard has reached the top of the charts. Now the pressure really starts because you have to back that up with a string of hits to capitalize on the momentum. I think this song was a good choice.
