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.
The IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year honoree partnered with longtime friend/songwriter Rory Feek to record this all-new collection, produced by Feek. Call Me Old-Fashioned features classics "Why Me" and "Beulah Land," the hit "I Feel Sorry For Them" and a stirring duet with the late Joey Feek.
Country music is at its best when it’s anchored in tradition, rooted in faith and family values and delivered with heartfelt passion that resonates with authenticity. On his Gaither Music Group debut, Call Me Old-Fashioned, Bradley Walker checks all those boxes and more. An unabashed traditionalist, Walker serves up a collection that would make his heroes proud, yet infuses each song with a youthful enthusiasm that puts a fresh spin on a classic style.
Walker has never been one to let anything deter him from his goals, and he credits the support of his parents with fueling his drive to succeed. Possessing both a fierce creative spirit and a determined practical streak, Walker got an education and went to work as a materials analyst at Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant while plotting how he’d succeed in the music business. He’s worked his day job while driving his custom van to Nashville to meet with songwriters, play gigs and pursue his dream of landing a deal and making it in the music industry. Along the way, he’s made a lot of friends and earned the respect of Nashville’s top music makers who were impressed not only by Walker’s evocative voice, but also his work ethic, playful sense of humor and easygoing charm.
Walker is excited about sharing his unique brand of faith-infused country music with the world. As the music continues, Walker chronicles his blessings in a song that beautifully illustrates his optimism and buoyant spirit. Self-pity has never been in his vocabulary yet he doesn’t view himself as a role model. "I’ve had people write and tell me that, and it’s so humbling when you hear it, but it’s hard for me to think of myself as a role model," he confesses. "I just try to do what I do; and in the process if it helps somebody, that’s a good thing.
