The Five Best Clay Walker Songs of All-Time

It’s kind of amusing how sometimes the rules that so many are told about when it comes to getting noticed aren’t followed and a diamond is found. Clay Walker started out at age 15 trying to perfect his craft, though he’d been interested for years before that, and dropped off a tape of his music with a local DJ at one point. The DJ did manage to tell him that the policy for playing tapes that were submitted in such a manner was that it just wasn’t done, but then once the DJ played it he said that Walker’s music was just too good to pass up. That’s the kind of thing that you don’t hear about happening all that often since the policies put into place are usually pretty ironclad. But every now and then an artist will benefit from someone not following the rules so that they can get the accolades they desire. Since then Walker’s career has been able to take off and remain pretty stable.

Here are some of the best songs from his career.

5. If I Could Make a Living

Love songs in any genre are often the kind of thing that get people moving and enjoying the sound and idea of what the song is talking about. It’s fair to say that the idea of a love song is to be about as positive as it can be, though sometimes it seems as though the longing is something that is a bit juvenile, perhaps on purpose. After all the idea of falling in love with someone is something that a lot of people look forward to in life, though too few ever see it as anything but a conquest that spurs them onward and makes them kind miserable for the longing. The song does make the point sweet and short though.

4. This Woman and This Man

One thing a lot of people think about country is that a lot of it is the same. It’s about hard luck stories, love, and otherwise doesn’t get too deep. In some cases that might be true, but it’s just as true for other genres as well if people are going to be completely honest. The purpose of music after all is multifaceted and often goes over many different stories throughout various tracks. Clay Walker does seem to be quite the romantic though as a good number of his songs seem to focus on love, relationships, and the kind of ideals that are far more bound up in what it means to be a decent person in a strong relationship.

3. Live Until I Die

Another thing about country music is that it usually has that kind of bounce to the song that can make you want to move and actually listen to what’s being said. For some people country music is anathema simply because they’ve heard one song they didn’t like, while for others it’s the only thing that they want to listen to since it seem to make sense to them in a comforting way. The idea of any music is that if it hits your ears just right and touches you in some way then it’s the music for you. Being inclusive when listening to music isn’t exactly a necessity, but it’s something that some folks tend to enjoy since it’s a little more comforting to give respect where it’s due regardless of genre.

2. She Won’t Be Lonely Long

Like some genres country music can fall into the trap of sounding alike from song to song since the same notes get used again and again for whatever reason. It could be a comfort thing since the movements on the instruments are known and the less strain one puts on their voice the easier it is to complete another track. Every genre goes through this, but sometimes country seems to get a bad rep for it a lot of times since the content seems to go over the same thing again and again. But don’t say that to a diehard country fan since they’ll likely bring up how other musicians do the same thing, and rightfully so.

1. What’s It To You

Music from all genres has value if you take the time to listen, and country is one of those that draws a lot of people together since it’s fun, engaging, and if you want to be perfectly honest it’s got to be one of the most unifying genres out there. Like so many other styles it’s taken the time to change and evolve throughout the years but has still kept its purity as well. Clay Walker has definitely kept his own sound able to diversify while still holding onto the basis of country so as to appease more than a few of his fans.

Whether it’s country or not the enjoyment is the whole point.
