ABOUT BRADLEY WALKER:
Country singer Bradley Walker is a storyteller. His unmistakable, baritone vocals are refreshing yet warmly familiar as are his songs about life, love, family and his Christian faith. In 2016, the IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year honoree partnered with longtime friend/songwriter Rory Feek to record a debut gospel music collection that captured his earnest style—one influenced by Haggard, Whitley, Jones, Gosdin, Milsap and others. Garnering three 2017 GMA DOVE Award nominations, those songs and his inspiring story have impacted countless people through his TV special, airing on over 15 networks.
In 2017, Walker went into the studio with longtime friend Ben Isaacs to record a traditional hymns recording that showcases his authenticity and finds him joining voices with many of his musical heroes. Whether singing on a Gaither HOMECOMING stage, "The Grand Ole Opry" or the "Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree," this "best-kept secret in country music" continues to put a fresh spin on a timeless style with his unique, faith-infused brand of country music.
