It’s hard to believe that “She Won’t Be Lonely Long” singer Clay Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 18 years ago. And since then, he hasn’t just managed his condition, he’s been a spokesperson for it. Through his own charity, Band Against MS, Clay has raised awareness and funds for research of the disease and helped provide financial assistance to those living with MS through a variety of events.

Today (March 20), Clay announced his fifth annual “Chords of Hope Benefit Concert” to take place Tuesday, June 3, at Nashville club 3rd & Lindsley.

“I was diagnosed with MS in 1996 and I have been in remission for 15 years due in part to eating healthy, exercising, treatment and my relationship with my neurologist, but the struggle continues daily for many people with the disease,” says Clay. “To be able to come together with some of Nashville’s best artists, do what we love and raise awareness for MS, is a gift that I feel blessed to be able to share.”

Joining Clay for the special event are his country music buddies Montgomery Gentry and newcomer Dustin Lynch. Tickets for the show, which takes place the Tuesday before CMA Music Festival, are available at 3rdandlindsley.com.
