93.7 The Dawg presents Dawg Dazzle with Julie Reeves, Frankie Ballard and Jon Pardi
Tickets also may be purchased for $5 the day of the show at the gate.
Ballard’s accomplishments include a No. 1 hit, “Helluva Life” and three singles on the Billboard Hot Country Chart, including his current single “Sunshine and Whiskey.” His album Sunshine and Whiskey, released on Warner Bros. Records, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.
The break of Ballard’s career came when he signed up to compete in Kenny Chesney’s “Next Big Star” competition in 2008. He won it for the state of Michigan and opened for Chesney for all of his Michigan concerts that year.
Pardi’s debut album, Write You a Song, peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Signed to Capitol Records, Pardi has had three charting singles, include his top-‐10 hit, “Up All Night,” and his current single, “What I Can’t Put Down.”
Pardi will appear on ABC’s The Bachelorette on Monday, June 2. Pardi will perform “Happens All the Time,” for current bachelorette Andi Dorfman and his date at the Mohegan Sun.
Jeff "Crawdawg" Crawford, program director and 93.7 The Dawg afternoon personality, is excited to have Ballard and Pardi headline this summer's Dawg Dazzle.
“We have two awesome up-‐and-‐comers this summer,” Crawford said. “They both have a lot of energy; their songs are climbing up the charts, and I think the girls will like the looks of them, too.”
“After you see them play Dawg Dazzle, I really believe that in a few years you’ll be able to say you saw them for free before they start headlining arenas.”
In addition to Ballard and Pardi, Dawg Dazzle also will have a performance by 93.7 The Dawg's morning show personality Julie Reeves, host of "Julie Reeves Live." Reeves came to the Dawg after a career in country music where she released the album It's About Time in 1999 featuring the two top-‐40 charting singles -‐-‐ "Trouble Is A Woman" and "What I Need." Her morning show is the No. 1 morning show in her demographic, according to Nielsen Audio.
"I'm so excited to get to perform with Frankie and Jon," Reeves said. "They both have really bright futures, and I love that they’ll be spending a part of their Independence Day Weekend with us."
The fireworks at this year's Dawg Dazzle will continue to be the largest in the Tri-‐State, according to Kindred Communications President Mike Kirtner.
"Our fireworks this year will include aerial and ground displays and to really see the full show you'll have to have a ticket and see it on the river with us at Dawg Dazzle," Kirtner said.
