Fall by Clay Walker

Clay Walker has never been the adventurous type, but his previous album, 2003’s A Few Questions, found him taking on some intriguing fare like the clever “Jesus Was a Country Boy” and the sensual hit “I Can’t Sleep.”

Fall is a retreat to safer territory, a set of solid but unexceptional songs distinguished only by being well sung.

When challenged with better material, Clay rises to the occasion—he stands toe-to-toe with Freddy Fender on a new version of the classic “Before the Next Teardrop Falls,” one of the late country legend’s final recordings—but most of Fall falls well short of that mark.
