There will be dancing in the orchestra pit for this performance.
David Ball’s mellifluous tenor is as smooth and tangy as a slice of buttermilk pie. Performing with his band The Pioneer Playboys, he seemingly came out of nowhere (as far as blind-sided Nashville is concerned) in the l
ate 90s with his mega hit Thinkin’ Problem and got himself nominated for every single award a new artist can possibly win.
Presenting a marvellous contemporary country-neo-traditionalist-progressive-honky-tonk style, he’s since gone on to write and record a slew of other stellar records that include his lovable tunes When The Thought Of You Catches Up With Me, Riding With Private Malone, What I’ll Do If I Don’t Have You, Amigo, She Always Talked About Mexico, Missing Her Blues, and When The Devil Wants To Wrestle.
Fourteen of Ball’s songs have entered the Billboard charts including Riding With Private Malone (which became a Country Top 5) and the good ol’ Thinkin’ Problem. He won a Grammy for his Old Folks At Home (Swanee River) in 2005 and the sales of his tune What’ll I Do If I Don’t Have You have been used to benefit Operation Troop Aid.
Come on out and see this true-blue country & western star and his Pioneer Playboys as a kick-off to the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium. His guitars, fiddle and bass set the mood for swooning, swaying and two-stepping all week long.
