(2016/WB) 11 tracks.
El Rio is Frankie Ballard's third studio album release. On the heels of his breakthrough sophomore album Sunshine & Whiskey, which featured three #1 singles and two gold certified tracks, Frankie returns with this amazing collection of songs, mostly recorded at a remote Texas studio on the Mexican border. El Rio is as close to "live in the studio" as an album can be, and the idea of a band all creating it together is the central theme of the project. The first single "It All Started With A Beer" zoomed into the Top 20 at country radio, and looks to be Frankie's next #1.
