BALLARDHEDS DESCEND ON DENVER… BALLARDMANIA ENSUES!   1 comment

Great Month Ahead At The Grizzly Rose

Just returned last night from another raucous night with my fellow Ballardheds at the Grizzly Rose Honky Tonk in Denver, CO!  We jammed to another amazing set by our hero, Warner Brothers recording artist, Frankie Ballard.  As self-appointed president of the Ballardheds fan club, I travel the US on my favorite airline, Southwest Airlines, to support a superstar in the making.  Yes.  Jack Daniels, tales of 40 days and 40 nights in the pen, and chicks dominate the lyrical content.  The drunken banjo player’s guitar pic nearly took a woman’s eye out.   A cover of “Mama, Don’t Let Yer Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys.”  Just another night in the life of a Ballardhed.  My good friend plays bass for the band as well and they are currently on tour with Kid Rock protegé, Uncle Kracker.  There was a nice crowd at the GRose which I had estimated at around 1800 or so.   I was hoping someone would jump on the Widowmaker, the GRose’s menacing mechanical bull, but it was not to be.  Ballardheds were preoccupied with flying guitar pics and two-stepping.   After the gig, Frankie and the fellas did their customary meet and greet.  The following day they were scheduled for another sold out show in Cheyenne, WY!
