Frankie Ballard will be headlining Valleepalooza on Saturday, July 30th.

Frankie Ballard was born  and raised in Battle Creek, Michigan.  After graduating high school, he attended Mott Community College and Western Michigan University.  He played NCAA basketball at the latter.  In the late 00s, he slowly started dipping his toes in the music business.  His first big break came in 2008, when he won the Michigan round of a singing competition put on by Kenny Chesney.

Earlier this week, Cooper had a chance to chat with Frankie about how he made the move into music full time:

The 2022 Valleepalooza concert will benefit the Travis MIlls Foundation and all they do for recalibrated veterans.  In addition to Frankie Ballard, you'll be able to see Breakin' Strings, Travis James Humphrey, and Nestor Andress.  Maine humorist Gary Crocker will be MCing the event.  Get all the details about Valleepalooza and get your tickets HERE
