After signing a new record deal with Toby Keith’s imprint Show Dog Nashville, country hitmaker Clay Walker is ready to make a triumphant return to country radio with his brand new single, “Need a Bar Sometimes.

Co-written by Walker with Jaron Boyer, Josh Mirenda and George Birge, “Need a Bar Sometimes” blends Walker’s traditional country roots with somewhat modern production, creating a fresh new sound that fits well within his wheelhouse. Lyrically, the track is one many can relate to as Walker croons about the reasons everyone may need to unwind with a cold one.

“We all need a bar sometimes/ Lean back with a long neck on a neon night/ Somewhere you can sip and unwind/ Or hang out with the party crowd till closing time/ You might be drowning her leaving/ Or just here drinking/ But we all need a bar sometimes,” he sings on the chorus.

Walker, who has a dozen No.1 hits and four platinum albums under his belt, recently revealed that he’s expecting his fifth child with his wife Jessica. The baby boy will arrive early next year and will join their children Ezra Stephen, 2½, Elijah Craig, 7, Mary-Elizabeth, 10, and William Clayton, 12, as well as his daughters from a previous marriage: Skylor, 21, and MaClay, 24.

Clay Walker is currently working on his 12th studio album and first with Show Dog Nashville.
