Walker signs with Show Dog

Monday, August 10, 2020 – Show Dog Nashville has signed Clay Walker.

The native Texan with four platinum albums and a dozen number one hits to his name joins the label helmed by Toby Keith.

"Toby and I started out at the same time and share a common vision," Walker said. "We are managed by the same team, and no one understands what an artist needs like another artist. We see eye to eye in so many ways. I am thrilled to be a part of this team and can't wait to get my new music out to everyone."

"Our paths have crossed many times," Keith said. "I respect Clay as an artist, and his catalog of hits speaks for itself. He writes and sings country music. What a concept."

Rick Moxley, Show Dog Nashville's VP Promotion, said, "Clay and I had a phenomenal run as teammates on Giant Records a few years back. He is an incredible country artist and I look forward to another successful string of hits."

Walker has been preparing over the past year, working with many songwriters as he readies a new project.

Walker's 31 charted singles include "Live Until I Die," "Dreaming With My Eyes Open," "If I Could Make A Living," "This Woman And This Man," "Hypnotize The Moon," "Rumor Has It," "Then What," "The Chain Of Love," "I Can't Sleep" and "She Won't Be Lonely Long."

Walker, 50, released his last album, "Long Live the Cowboy," last year.

CD reviews for Clay Walker

CD review - Fall Close to four years passed since Clay Walker released a new disc, and not a lot has changed for Walker, whose very first single, 'Live Until I Die," hit number 1 in 1994. Walker continues displaying a very pleasant country voice with a good sense of emotion among the 12 songs (the second single, "Fall") on this Keith Stegall-produced disc. Walker turns in an excellent reading of "Before the Next Teardrop Falls," which boasts the late singer Freddy Fender lending backing vocals. ...
Clay Walker isn't in the kind of questioning mood this album's title implies; instead, "A Few Questions" offers simple and straight-forward answers to life's bigger questions. But since Walker is not what you might consider a deep thinker, his latest release adds up to a simplistic and unfulfilling offering. A good example of this recording's shallowness is the clich+-ridden "Everybody Needs Love," which endlessly repeats stereotypes about Nashvillians and Texans, without ever telling us anything ...
Clay Walker fans expecting fiddle-and-steel arrangements of traditional Christmas songs may be disappointed. Walker fans willing to keep an open mind (and ear), on the other hand, may be pleasantly surprised. Sure, we get a fiddle solo on "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," but it's followed by a saxophone solo. The best song, surprisingly, is "Go Tell It on the Mountain," replete with organ and hallelujah choir. Walker really digs into the vocal and turns in a standout performance. ...
