NASHVILLE, Tenn. - (October 15, 2019) – Grammy Award winning artist David Ball, releases new single “Come See Me,” the title track from his tenth studio album, on October 15. A magnificently gripping ballad, “Come See Me” gives chills to the listener, in the same spirit as “When The Thought of You Catches Up With Me” (#7 Billboard Hot Country Singles, 1994,) and his most covered song, “Don’t You Think I Feel It Too” (1970) which was recorded by Uncle Walts Band, Jessie Colter, Shawn Colvin, Toni Price, Lyle Lovett and Carson McHone.  “Come See Me” is available for download and streaming on all digital music platforms here.  

On November 1, Omnivore Recordings will reissue An American In Texas, the second album from Americana pioneers Uncle Walt’s Band, of which Ball was a founding member and upright bassist. Called the Bluegrass Beatles by critics, Lyle Lovett wrote, “Those boys from Carolina, they sure enough could sing." The album will be distributed for streaming and download on all digital platforms, with a physical CD available at independent record stores. Pre-order online here

Ball’s career-defining, platinum-selling solo debut, Thinkin’ Problem, is targeted for reissue on Omnivore Recordings on November 15. The deluxe 25th Anniversary edition will contain a previously unreleased alternate title cut, seven additional songs from that period, and never before seen images from the original photo session, kept in the Warner Brothers vault these twenty-five years. A first time available issue will be available at all independents and pre-ordered here

Thinkin’ Problem’s impact in Country music in 1994, garnered Ball a nomination for a Grammy Award in Best Country Male Vocal Performance as well as a nomination for CMA Horizon Award. 

"David has one of the most Classic and sincere voices in country music- the first time I heard him, I thought, 'I believe what that guy is saying’ and after touring with him I knew for sure, he was the real deal – can’t wait to 'drop a needle' on this one!" Kix Brooks, states in the liner notes of Thinkin’ Problem reissue.

About David Ball:  David Ball grew up in Spartanburg, SC 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, credited as the first Americana act. 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.  David’s music came full circle when Lyle Lovett reached back into Uncle Walt’s Band repertoire to include one of David’s early songs, "Don’t You Think I Feel It Too” on his 2009 disc, Natural Forces. David won a Grammy Award for the song “Old Folks At Home (Swanee River)” from the album Beautiful Dreamer - The Songs of Stephen Foster. (2005) Fourteen of his singles have 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, including his platinum certified Thinkin’ Problem.  The title track was the top selling country song of 1994. In 2013 David Ball became one of the first living members to be inducted into the Historic Spartanburg Music Trail in his hometown of Spartanburg SC, joining other notables such as Hank Garland, Don Reno, Buck Trent and the Marshall Tucker Band. He won the 2016 Operation Troop Aid Chris Kyle Patriot Award, for his extensive work with our active duty servicemen and women. Come See Me (2018) is Ball’s 10th studio album.
