This week on What Ever Happened To Wednesday, I'm featuring David Ball. You probably remember him, fourteen of his singles entered the Billboard charts, including “Thinkin’ Problem” and “Riding With Private Malone,” which made Ball one of the first artists to take an indie single to the Country Top 5. He has recorded a total of seven studio albums on different labels, including his platinum certified Thinkin’ Problem.

According to his website, David Ball and The Pioneer Playboys have been touring in support the latest CD Sparkle City, which includes the single “Hot Water Pipe” and the upcoming “What’ll I Do If I Don’t Have You.”

David Ball is not resting on his legendary success. He and The Pioneer Playboys are touring as actively as ever, playing more dates than most contemporary hit-makers.

One thing I did not know about David was that he won a Grammy Award for the song “Old Folks At Home (Swanee River)” from the album Beautiful Dreamer - The Songs of Stephen Foster in 2005. Awesome!

You might be able to catch David out on the road with the Pioneer Playboys, but until then, enjoy this video of one of David's most popular hits "Riding With Private Malone"
