DEADWOOD, S.D. (03/28/16) – Multi-Platinum country music artist Clay Walker will be bringing his brand of high energy country to the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center on Friday, July 29th at 8pm.
Walker, a native of East Texas, rocked the country scene in 1993 with his debut album that included the smash hit “What’s It To You.” He continued to make a splash, releasing a string of number one hits including "If I Could Make A Living," "This Woman and This Man" and "Rumor Has It." In 1996 he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis but Clay did not let that set him back. He has continued touring and recording steadily since the diagnosis and is well known for his high-energy concerts and performance style. He later founded the Band Against MS foundation after realizing the impact the disease has on others. Since its formation in 2003, Clay has helped Band Against MS raise upwards of $5,000,000 through charity performances, golf tournaments, bike rides, auctions, etc. “We love having high energy artists at the Grand,” said Susan Kightlinger, Resort Manager for Deadwood Mountain Grand. “The audience is guaranteed to have a great time at Clay’s show!” Walker has had 4 RIAA Platinum albums, 2 Certified Gold albums, and 11 #1 singles to date. After “She Won’t Be Lonely Long” reached top 5 on the radio, Clay began working on new music with a fresh sound. He recently released his single “Right Now” to The Highway on Sirius XM this past fall, teasing an impending album release. The full album is expected to debut later this year.
