Nashville, Tenn. — Alabama native Bradley Walker’s new video, “Call Me Old-Fashioned,” was shared today on longtime friend, singer and songwriter Rory Feek‘s (Joey + Rory) blog, This Life I Live. The song is from the album of the same name, released on Gaither Music Group/Farmhouse Recordings on September 23, 2016 (buy).
A well-loved performer for years among country and bluegrass music circles, Walker is a storyteller. His unmistakable, baritone vocals are at once refreshing yet warmly familiar as are his songs about life, love, family and faith. The title track, “Call Me Old Fashioned,” not only encompasses each of these values, it is also a window into the soul of Bradley Walker himself. This is not just a song that Walker sings; it is the life that he chooses to live.
A longtime fan of country music legends, he showcases his signature style on the Kris Kristofferson-penned “Why Me,” along with “I Feel Sorry for Them,” a poignant ballad co-written with Feek and Tim Johnson, reflecting the strength and grace synonymous with Walker’s life journey from a wheelchair, with muscular dystrophy. Award-winning group The Isaacs joined Walker for the gospel classic “Sweet Beulah Land,” and also made an appearance on the new live concert DVD that has also been released.
Filmed in the barn at Joey + Rory’s farm outside of Nashville, TN, Feek hosted this memorable evening which featured Walker’s live performance of songs from the album. The DVD also includes behind-the-scenes footage with Feek and Walker, as the two long time friends discuss life and the music they both hold dear.
Feek and his late wife, Joey, have long been a part of Walker’s story. The three recorded and performed together, and Joey requested Walker sing the old hymn “Leave It There” at her funeral. That performance caught the ear of gospel music legend Bill Gaither. Gaither Music Group then partnered with Walker and Feek, who produced the project, for the new CD and DVD recordings. As the new studio recording came into being, it seemed fitting for Walker to “sing” with Joey one more time. Feek and Walker put together a special duet of the song “In the Time That You Gave Me,” featuring both Bradley and Joey.
The Call Me Old-Fashioned DVD recording will be featured as a TV special in the coming months on networks including RFD-TV, PBS, Gaither TV (DISH TV Channel 276), TBN, Family Net, CTN, The Walk TV (formerly Legacy), TCT and TLN and also in Canada on Vision TV, CTS, Grace TV and the Miracle Channel. The DVD will be featured on Gaither TV (Roku, Google and the Internet).
