Bradley Walker Sings At Providence Baptist Church Sunday

Sunday, September 22, 2019 - by Bill Reesor

Bradley Walker will sing at Providence Baptist Church on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 11 a.m.

Over three years ago I heard a young man sing on a Bill Gaither TV concert, his name is Bradley Walker.  He has since become a friend in The Lord.  I once told him, "Bradley, you sound like Waylon Jennings and George Strait all rolled into one." He only laughs with his typical modest shy behavior.

He has appeared with The Oak Ridge Boys, and collaborated with Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs,The Isaacs, Alison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, Jimmy Fortune, and many other Nashville stars, and was awarded the 1898 International Bluegrass Music Association Male Vocalist of The Year.

His album "Leave It There" debuted at No. 9 on the Top Country Albums in 2016, and his album "Blessed Hymns & Songs Of Faith" also received the GMA Dove Award for Bluegrass/Country/ Roots Album of The Year in 2018.  His albums can be found at Wal-Mart, Cracker Barrel, Best Buy, and other places including on line.

One of Bradley's closest friends is well known singer song writer Rory Feek.  Bradley was especially close to Rory's wife Joey, and often sang duets with her. When she was stricken with terminal cancer at her young age, she asked Bradley to sing at her funeral.  Family friend Bill Gaither attended her funeral, and was so impressed with Bradley's unusual voice that he immediately signed him to a contract on his Gaither label. 

You won't want to miss hearing this talented young man sing his award winning country songs, and songs of faith, like you have never heard them before. 

I had to laugh when Larry Gatlin heard Bradley sing for the first time, he literally slid from his chair with his mouth wide open.  Everyone is invited to enjoy hearing Bradley together.

Providence Baptist Church is at 8523 Providence Road in Ooltewah. For more information call 238-4363.
