Clay Walker’s first time in Nova Scotia was a memorable one. He was amazed by the thick fog, the amazing oysters he enjoyed on the waterfront and the love of country music that Canadians have. He said how attentive Canadians are to the lyrics of artist’s songs as the crowd sang along to all of his songs during the evening.
Clay had an amazing set including a huge video screen playing behind him, streamers and confetti coming from the ceiling and Maritimer Kris Richards as his lead guitarist.
Throughout his set, he played many of his great hits along with some new ones. We can look forward to new music from Clay very soon, you can listen to his latest single “right now” linked on here. It’s safe to say this may have been his first trip to the Maritimes but it won’t be his last. A member of the crowd gave him a Nova Scotia Flag that he loved so much he kissed it.
It was Alex’s birthday, he plays the fiddle in Clay’s band and oh wow can he play. He did a little solo during the set that knocked your socks off. The audience sang Happy Birthday to him. Kris Richards from Bridegwater started with Clay’s band 3 months ago as lead guitarist. It was great to see a local musician land his dream job after leaving for Nashville just 9 months ago.
Clay asked the crowd if he could take a selfie, shortly after he finished up with “What’s it to you”. The crowd went wild, clapping, yelling… Clay came out for an encore.
He said such a beautiful rendition of “Hallelujah” that gave you chills. He received a standing ovation and it was a perfect end to one amazing show.
