Clay Walker announces 'Need A Bar Sometimes' | The Music Universe

Debut single on new label available everywhere August 14th

Multi-platinum selling country singer and recently signed Show Dog Nashville recording artist Clay Walker will release “Need A Bar Sometimes,” his debut single for the label, on Friday, August 14th.

Produced by Michael Knox (Jason Aldean) and Jaron Boyer and co-written by Walker alongside Boyer, Josh Mirenda and George Birge, the neo-traditional track is framed by a future-forward steel guitar lick and airy musical bed, finding Walker’s celebrated vocals going down as smooth as a cold beer on a hot day.

“We all need a bar sometimes/Lean back with a long neck on a neon night/Somewhere you can sip and unwind/Or hang out with the party crowd till closing time/You might be drowning her leaving/Or just here drinking/But we all need a bar sometimes,” the chorus reads.

With four platinum albums and a dozen No. 1 hits to his credit, Walker has been embracing the evolution of the genre and working with many of country music’s top songwriters. No slouch in that department himself, the native Texan has written or co-written many of his biggest hits including “Live Until I Die,” “Rumor Has It” and “I Can’t Sleep.”

Walker signed with TKO Artist Management last year, and with Toby Keith’s Show Dog Nashville record label this month. With new creative and business teams, Walker readies for his 12th studio album.
