Clay Walker will take the stage at the 2019 Stanislaus County Fair this summer.

Walker will perform on July 17, at the Stanislaus County Fair. Walker will appear on the Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert is hosted by KAT COUNTRY 103.3 and is free with the price of Fair admission.

“We are very excited to announce Clay Walker for our 2019 lineup,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “Clay Walker performed at the Stanislaus County Fair back in 2011 and is sure to be a crowd-pleasing hit for country music fans during our 10-nights of free celebrity concerts.”

Walker has been highly successful in his career. Even 17 years after his first hit, “What’s It To You,” Clay released four platinum albums, two certified gold albums and 11 No. 1 singles. Walker’s motivation is inspired by the experiences he has faced throughout his life. For example, his bar-playing band experience aided in the making of the song “She Won’t Be Lonely Long.” In addition, Walker’s single, “Double Shot of John Wayne” reflects living each day by strength and perseverance. Walker has had to find this strength after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 26. His heroic passion for finding a cure for MS with his charity organization, Band Against MS, stems from his diagnosis in 1996. Though his MS is now contained by medication, he carries the fight to find a cure for all battling MS by the grace of his organization. Walker is best known for hits, such as “Fall,” “She Won’t Be Lonely Long,” “Live Until I Die,” and “Like We Never Said Goodbye.”

The 2019 Stanislaus County Fair opens July 12 for a 10-day run.
