Clay Walker Performs New Single “Right Now” at Opry

Clay Walker performed hisnew single, “Right Now,” at The Grand Ole Opry last week. Fans, who haven’t already, can purchase the song here

“Working with Shane (Minor) and Wade (Kirby), who are not only tremendous musicians, but great friends, was really inspiring,” said Walker. “Shane thought that we should write something that would showcase what he calls ‘the bluesy feel of my voice,’ so he thought to call in Wade. What we came away with was, for me, ‘soulful magic’ – a song that’s for everyone that has let themselves be vulnerable to the possibility of love.”
