About Clay Walker
Certain artists just seem to have an innate sense of what it takes to please an audience. Clay Walker is one of those artists. Whether on stage or in the recording studio, Walker never gives less than a hundred percent, and it’s that kind of dedicated work ethic combined with God-given talent that have made him one of the most successful country acts of the past decade. He first topped the Billboard country singles chart in 1993 with “What’s It to You” and followed with his second consecutive No. 1 hit, “Live Until I Die.” Since then he’s placed 31 titles on Billboard’s singles chart including such additional chart toppers as “Dreaming with my Eyes Open,” “If I Could Make Living,” “This Woman and This Man,” and “Rumor Has It.”
In 1996 Walker was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis but he did not let that define him and continued to tour and record. He later founded the Band Against MS foundation after realizing the impact of disease and his desire to help those who face it. Since its formation in 2003, Walker has helped Band Against MS raise upwards of $5,000,000.
