Joshua Ray Walker to Make TV Debut Ahead of Upcoming Tour

Those with their ears to the ground don’t need to be told that Joshua Ray Walker has quickly become one of the most revered up-and-coming songwriters in country music. Already a Saving Country Music Song of the Year winner, his debut trilogy of albums capped off by 2021’s See You Next Time have put him on the top shelf of wordsmiths, so much so he’s garnered the attention of a national audience, even if he’s received little or no attention from country’s mainstream.

That deep appreciation for Joshua Ray Walker’s music is the reason he was chosen to sing the National Anthem at the only stop on the Formula 1 racing series in the United States at the Circuit of the Americas just outside of Austin, TX last October. That’s also what’s won him the opportunity to make his late night television debut on The Tonight Show February 1st. Originally scheduled for January 11th, the performance was moved due to COVID issues.

The very next night after The Tonight Show appearance, Walker will be playing at Ponyboy in Oklahoma City as part of an upcoming tour this late winter into early spring. It will include opening a show for Wade Bowen at Joe’s on Weed Street in Chicago, and for Wheeler Walker Jr. at the Ryman Auditorium in April.

Just like some other of your favorite independent country artists before him, it may not be long before Joshua Ray Walker won’t be playing intimate clubs, but bigger and bigger venues. So see him in a smaller setting while you still can.
