New Music by Frankie Ballard, Billy Currington and Chris Lane This Week on 95 Country


Frankie Ballard's first single from his forthcoming new album starts with a cold one. “It All Started With a Beer,” follows three consecutive No. 1 songs and is the first single from his as-yet-untitled third album, due early in 2016.  Frankie recently shared his thoughts on the song with Music Row Magazine

"This song is about how the biggest moments in our lives, the ones we find ourselves talking about down the road, usually start in an amazingly small, humble way,” says Ballard. “I'm proud of the way the production on this tune supports the lyric. When that slide guitar comes cruisin' in, I start feeling all different types of good...and thirsty. I hope people slow dance to this song and remember why they've tried so hard to stay together. "

Frankie performs at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum on April 22nd, and is part of the May 28th lineup at the annual Bayou Country Superfest in Baton Rouge. 

“It Don’t Hurt Like It Used To” is the only song that Billy Currington wrote on his 2015 album Summer Forever, and he admits he borrowed from his own personal history when working with co-writers Shy Carter and Cary Barlowe. The “Alabama dirt” line is one that’s specifically pulled from past romance, and he does a fine job of capturing the heartbreak of breaking up, as well as the new lovey-dovey feelings he has towards the next girl.  Billy picked Kelsea Ballerini as the opening act for his upcoming "Summer Forever" tour, which kicks off this week. 


Growing up in Kernersville, North Carolina, newcomer Chris Lane listened to all of the requisite country music staples: Alan Jackson, George Strait, KennyChesney and Garth Brooks. His new single "Fix" showcases his impressively natural singing style. Written by Sarah Buxton, Jesse Frasure and Abe Stoklasa, the song is a vibrant jam, about finding that one person who gives you exactly what you need. Lane delivers it with a southern voice and a sophisticated touch, announcing the arrival of a new brand of country star — one with a keen ear for what fans are listening to today.

With more than 500 shows to his credit in just a few short years, Lane has shared the stage with Florida Georgia Line, Jerrod Niemann, Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett, and will join Dustin Lynch's 35-plus cities Hell of a Night Tour this fall.
