Clay Walker Concert to Benefit MS Research at Vanderbilt, Wednesday, March 2

On Wednesday, March 2, multi-platinum recording artist Clay Walker returns to Nashville to host a benefit concert at the Wildhorse Saloon to raise money and awareness for multiple sclerosis (MS) research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Celebrating its second year, Chords of Hope: The Clay Walker MS Benefit Concert, is presented by 98 WSIX-FM and produced by Walker’s charity, Band Against MS (BAMS). Tickets prices range from $15.50 to $150. Ticket information is available at or by calling 902-8211.

Diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in 1996, Walker founded BAMS to provide educational information and to fund research for MS in hopes of finding a cure for the disease.

“This concert is truly a marriage between two important aspects of my life — music and raising awareness for MS,” said Walker. “I’m thrilled to be performing again at the Wildhorse and I’m honored to continue our support by raising money for the important MS research being conducted by our friends at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.”
