Country music singer Frankie Ballard hasn't forgotten where he came from and left a generous gratuity when he visited Mancino's restaurant in Battle Creek.

Everyone who knows Frankie Ballard from his hometown of Battle Creek talks about what a nice guy he was and still is. He proved it on a break from the Keith Urban tour when he visited family his hometown in Southwest Michigan.

Grabbing a pizza of a couple of grinders from Mancino's on Columbia Ave., Frankie Ballard stunned the staff when he left a $100 tip on a bill of $22.37. That's a handsome tip of almost 550%.
