Entertainment Due At JH Ranch
Frankie Ballard

Country stars hit the stage this Saturday, Aug. 29 for the seventh annual Sierra View Music Festival at JH Ranch in Oakdale. The funds raised at the event will support the Heidi Brunk Foundation, which offers students in the Central Valley an opportunity for a music scholarship.

The line-up for this year’s festival includes country duo Love and Theft, Frankie Ballard, Craig Morgan, as well as some local entertainment to start the show.

Ballard is an up and coming country artist that has hit the country scene with tracks like “Helluva Life,” “Sunshine and Whiskey,” and his current single, “Young and Crazy” which just hit number one at Country Radio.

Ballard is a singer, guitarist with Warner Bros. Records and has put a lot of hard work into his full length album “Sunshine & Whiskey” that debuted at number 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.

“I couldn’t have asked for more out of this album or my fans. It has been so much fun playing it for you on the road these past months,” said Ballard. “Thank you to all the people who make Country Radio possible. My spirit is celebrating today.”

Currently touring with Florida Georgia Line on the Anything Goes Tour, Ballard will continue touring this winter with Randy Houser on the We Went Tour that kicks off in November.

He has opened for Jake Owen, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, and Bob Seger.

Love and Theft will perform at the festival bringing fans their hits like “Angel Eyes,” “Night That You’ll Never Forget,” and “Whiskey on Breath” which is their latest single off their third album, recently released.

Craig Morgan is the headliner at the Festival and has had a musical career spanning several years. He will be bringing fans a list of hits like, “Almost Home,” “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” and several others.

Gates open at 2 p.m. and the show will start at 3 p.m. Tickets are still available starting at $40. For more information visit Sierra View Music Fest online at
