It has been three long years since we last heard from Clay Walker, who released “Jesse James” as the final single from his 2010 album, She Won’t Be Lonely Long, back in the summer of ’12.
This month, “Right Now” was released to radio (though, I have yet to hear it in my area yet, sadly) and I’ll say it right here: If this song doesn’t find success on the radio, I don’t know what more a guy has to do! While Walker has been vocal about “outdated rock ‘n’ rollers” jumping over to the country genre, he has also been quite supportive of today’s country sound. I don’t imagine we’ll hear Clay rapping any time soon, however, he has been able to keep up with modern trends in country music.
“Right Now” fits in very well with today’s radio country, without Walker giving up on what brought him to the dance in the first place. As long as Clay Walker is around, the cowboy love song will not die. It may sound a little bit different than say, “Where Do I Fit In The Picture,” but it is Clay Walker, through and through.
The forthcoming album, tentatively titled Long Live The Cowboy has yet to see a release date, but you can bet your boots that I will be there, Day One.
