It's been one heck of a ride to get here, from Nashville to El Paso and back again, following his breakthrough album Sunshine & Whiskey, country music star Frankie Ballard has released his latest album called El Rio. Ballard, who watched his father entertain as a kid, figured that he'd try and do something with music as well. Born in Battle Creek, Michigan, Ballard has a number of influences, including another Michigan native, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bob Seger.

Ballard explains why he went to El Paso to record this magical record. With growing anticipation, Ballard is especially excited to hear fans' reactions to some of the new music that no one has heard.

FOX's Laura Ingle spent "A Few Moments With..." Ballard to discuss his new album El Rio and his musical journey:
