Clay Walker Hosts 5th Annual Chords of Hope Benefit with a Little Help from His Friends

ClayWalker1

The 5th annual Band Against MS Chords of Hope event was held on Tuesday, June 3rd at Nashville’s 3rd and Lindsley, hosted by Clay Walker with special guests Montgomery Gentry and Dustin Lynch. The evening was filled with not only fun music, but a message of hope.

The benefit raises money for multiple sclerosis research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and encourages those battling the disease that there is hope for a cure.

“Everybody who is connected to MS, whether it be a doctor, a patient, a nurse, a hospital, they’re all hoping for the same thing: to keep hope alive for a cure for MS,” says Walker. “The most exciting thing to me is seeing their enthusiasm about helping us spread the word getting people out here, and then also raising the money that keeps our hope alive.”

DustinLynch2

Dustin Lynch kicked off the show with an acoustic set featuring his debut hit “Cowboys and Angels,” along with his current fast-rising hit “That’s Where It’s At (Yep Yep).” Lynch has been working on new music, and played a few new songs including “Halo” and “Sing It To Me.” If the new tunes are any indication, Lynch has a hit album in the works.

MontgomeryGentry2

Montgomery Gentry brought a high-energy performance, complete with Eddie Montgomery’s signature microphone stand spins and fun banter with Troy Gentry. The duo played their hits from the past 15 years, including “There’s One in Every Crowd” and “My Town,” while engaging the audience in their stories. Recently signed to Blaster Records, Troy and Eddie are in the studio with producer Michael Knox working on new music.

ClayWalker3

Clay Walker closed out the night with a string of hits from his 20-year career and brand new songs, including “Rock the Radio” and “Long Live the Cowboy.” He has been in the studio for the past 7 months working on new music that he’s eager to share with fans. Complete with shooting streamers and flower leis, Walker kept the party going for the packed crowd that was soaking up every song.

“Songs are about memories,” Walker commented during the show, as he helped fans relive old ones and make new ones.

A show in Nashville during CMA Fest would not be complete without a surprise guest, and this night was no exception. The legendary Johnny Rodriguez was unexpectedly in the audience, and Walker excitedly invited him on stage to perform “That’s the Way Love Goes,” which was a number one hit for both Rodriguez and Merle Haggard.

Walker’s foundation Band Against MS is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing educational information for those living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and funding programs that are researching a cure for the disease. To learn more, visit bandagainstms.org and claywalker.com.
