Frankie Ballard Gets Married
Frankie Ballard is a married man! The singer has tied the knot with Christina Murphy.
Ballard shared his big news on Sunday (March 12): "Someday baby, you'll accomp'ny me ... and that day is today!" Ballard writes in an Instagram post, referencing his current single. "@oldsmokeysboots has become my wife."
For her part, Murphy writes on Instagram, "My dream just came true." She, too, shared a photo of herself and Ballard on their wedding day, in front of a chapel. A rep for Ballard reports that the couple's nuptials -- which may be a surprise to fans, as Ballard never publicly announced their engagement -- took place at Star Hill Ranch in Bee Cave, Texas, over the weekend of March 11-12.
According to the website for her company, Old Smokeys Boots, Murphy is a native Texan who spent 10 years living in Los Angeles, trying to make it as an actress; according to IMDB, she earned roles in the TV movie Campus Confidential and the TV series Friends With Better Live, among other works. However, Murphy now designs "reworked, one of a kind, bada-- boots," found through vintage sources; during her childhood, her parents owned shoe stores in Austin.
In January, Ballard released "You'll Accomp'ny Me" as the latest single from his album El Rio, released in 2014. The song was originally a Top 20 hit on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100 (No. 14) for Bob Seger.
