Clay Walker and Tracy Lawrence have announced that they’re hitting the road together again this November, after a run of successful shows earlier this year. The two country icons will share the stage with a full band for an unforgettable evening of music and camaraderie.
Walker and Lawrence have been friends for nearly 30 years, with an infinite amount of stories to accompany that friendship. During a recent concert in Marion, Illinois, Walker shared the story of his first time ever on a tour bus, which was with Lawrence, and the mayhem that ensued.
“So he does this show and he comes offstage and I’m like, wow, that’s awesome,” Walker told the crowd. “People going crazy. We get on the bus and the adult beverages start flowing… and they’re still flowing. They just flowed and flowed,” Walker laughed. “As we get down the road,” he shook his head, grinning. ”There may or may not have been a firearm involved. I thought I was shot. And so I’m touching all over my body trying to feel for the blood. It was an accident, accidents happen,” he laughed. “May or may not have been a sign or two that got shot, I don’t know. I’m like, I’m gonna die. They’re all crazy. The whole band – they’re all bat-you-know-what crazy.”
He continued, “I thought I was gonna die on this night, but I thought, good Lord, I’m a believer. You know what? I might have not got to the promised land, but like Moses, you let me see it, and if this is it… W.T.F.”
Walker added, “But he [Lawrence] tells his version of this story that he and his band went out. We stopped in Iowa and robbed a cornfield. That Clay wouldn’t go because I was in my bunk, in the fetal position with the curtain shut.”
Fans can hear the rest of Lawrence’s side of the story, along with performances from both ‘90s country stars during CMT’s Campfire Sessions, which airs on Friday, July 29 at 10/9c.
“Tracy Lawrence is one of my best friends, lemme tell you what,” concluded Walker. “If he ever needed me, I’d be there in the blink of an eye because he’s the same way for me. But that’s real stuff right there. And one of the greatest people I know, one of the kindest, biggest hearts, fun-est person I’ve ever been around.”
Walker and Lawrence will hit the road together starting November 3 in Norfolk, VA and perform six shows, wrapping up on November 12 in Macon, GA.
