Grammy-winning country musician David Ball will be in concert at Park Theater on Sept. 28 at 7 p.m.
Ball says he’s looking forward to performing at historic Park Theater.
“We have played a number of classic theaters in the past and it’s a favorite place to perform,” he said. “This looks like a real treat and we promise to do it justice by playing some classic country western music, from old standards to a few of my brand new songs. I still like songs built around melody and lyrics so that’s what we do. We’ll be there with a small four-piece band and I bet the acoustics are fantastic. McMinnville should be proud of such a great venue.”
Ball won a Grammy Award for the song “Old Folks at Home (Swanee River).”
No. 1 hits include “Thinkin’ Problem” and “Riding with Private Malone.”
He also has 14 total singles that have reached Billboard charts, and has a total of seven studio albums.
Ball grew up in Spartanburg, S.C., where he learned to play guitar but later honed his skills on the upright bass, which led to a gig playing bass in Uncle Walt’s Band.
The legendary trio was headed by Walter Hyatt and also included Champ Hood.
A solo career led Ball to Nashville where he signed a publishing deal and later, a recording contract.
