Clay Walker, who made his debut in 1993 with the single “What’s It to You,” will perform at the Stanislaus County Fair in July.

Country artist Clay Walker will perform on Wednesday, 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 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 is best known for hits, such as “Fall,” “She Won’t Be Lonely Long,” “Live Until I Die,” and “Like We Never Said Goodbye.”

Even 17 years after his first hit, “What’s It To You,” Walker released four platinum albums, two certified gold albums and 11 No. 1 singles. Walker says his motivation is inspired by the experiences he has faced in 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 (MS) 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.

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

Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and the Fair season pass will be on sale beginning Saturday, April 20. Visit the Fair’s website for upcoming ticket sale information at
