Country superstar Clay Walker reacted to Bear Bailey’s cover of his single and he was so impressed that he invited him to perform on stage with him on day.
The viral TikTok gas station singer shared a cover of Clay Walker’s “Fall” via TikTok on July 15, which has amassed over 1.3 million views and thousands of comments since its release, and nearly 2 months later the stunning cover has finally reached Walker.
“Fall, go on and fall apart / Fall into these arms of mine / I’ll catch you every time you fall / Go on and lose it all / Every doubt, every fear / Every worry, every tear / I’m right here, baby, fall,” Bailey sings from the drivers seat of his car in the clip he shared mid-July.

On Wednesday (Sept. 1), Walker duetted the clip from what appears to be a back porch of what could be his home.
“Give this guy a like! He can SING!” he captioned the clip on TikTok.
“Whew,” Walker said upon seeing the opening lines of the video.
“Man, that’s a hard song to sing. This guys nailing it. Whew, what a voice,” Walker gushed with a massive smile on his face. “Yeah, come get on stage with us sometime brother. You are killing that song brother.”
Upon seeing Walker’s reaction clip, Bailey commented, “I’m blown away by this sir, Clay Walker thank you for sharing.”

“Fall” is a song co-written by Clay Mills, Sonny LeMarie and Shane Minor. The track was the second single from Walker’s 2007 album of the same name.
This is not the first time Bailey has impressed a country superstar with his incredible vocals. As Bailey has been grasping attention from some of country music’s biggest stars. Mickey Guyton, who saw Bailey’s gas-station performance of K-CI & Jojo’s “All My Life,” re-tweeted the clip, showing her enthusiasm for Bailey’s talent with the simple caption, “I Can’t.” While country superstar Keith Urban has also taken an interest in Bailey’s work in the recent months, responding via Twitter to one of his video cover performances of Urban’s 2009 smash, “‘Til Summer Comes Around,” with three love hand gesture emojis. Dan + Shay also got in on the excitement, commenting on a video from their own TikTok account, raving, “killed it, Man!”
More recently, Tim McGraw reacted to his cover of “Something Like That,” which Bailey duetted McGraw and earned praise from the singer and his fans.
