– Frankie Ballard injured himself last Friday after falling off the stage during a Texas concert, but that did not stop him from staying on the road.
While performing at the Humble Rodeo and BBQ Cook-Off in Humble, Texas on Friday night, Ballard "got hung up jumping off the stage to engage with the packed crowd," according to his web site.
He kept playing and finished out the last two songs of his set with a separated shoulder, a few mangled ligaments and an injured rib. Ballard said he is "still kickin' like a mule" and "it'll take a lot more than that to keep me from rockin'!"
On Monday, Ballard posted on Twitter, "I miss playin' guitar..." with a photo of himself with a sad face.
He performed the following night in Mission, Texas, and no upcoming shows have been cancelled at this time.
