Personalities | Clay Walker | New Country & The Neo-Traditionalists

(Vocals, songwriter, b. 1969)

Despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis early in his career, Clay Walker – whose 1993 debut single, ‘What’s It To You’ topped the singles charts – has since occupied that position on more than 10 occasions. Without gaining the recognition he might have, the smooth-voiced ballad singer has remained a strong and consistent chart performer and is a good example of just how much talent is found in Nashville.
