PEMBROKE, Ky. – The monthly Pickin’ on the Porch event at MB Roland Distillery welcomes a classic country singer to their next event this weekend.
David Ball, best known for a run of hit songs in the 90s including “Thinkin’ Problem”, “Look What Followed Me Home”, and “Riding with Private Malone” performs Saturday, August 2 at 6 p.m.

Ball is still actively touring and is a favorite among fans of classic country for his unmistakable phrasing in the tradition of Merle Haggard and George Jones.
His local appearance is a big leap forward for MB Roland Distillery, which was founded in 2009 and attracts big crowds with a monthly live music event called “Pickin’ on the Porch”.
The event usually features local or regional talent, so having a nationally recognized talent (and Grammy winner) make an appearance has the folks at MB Roland bracing for a much bigger crowd. They’re recommending showing up early and car-pooling if possible due to limited parking.
Since the announcement of Ball’s appearance, MB Roland has been fielding calls from fans from Indiana, North Carolina, and several other states saying they plan on attending.
The distillery, located in Pembroke in Christian County, uses local white corn to hand make a variety of products including Kentucky Bourbon and Kentucky Pink Lemonade.
