She Won’t Be Lonely Long by Clay Walker

Clay’s latest balances earnest love ballads such as “Keep Me From Loving You” with odes to manly heroes (“Double Shot of John Wayne”).

“Loving You” is a strong successor to Clay’s 2007 single “Fall,” which similarly mixed an affectionate lyric with a sensual melody. The banjo-laced “Jesse James” features hints of old-time bluegrass and western music, and rocks with authority on lines such as Sometimes I want to be Jesus and sometimes I want to be Jesse James.

The album does have a couple of clunkers (the forgettable “All American” and “Summertime Song), but Clay’s rich voice fits well with former Alabama lead singer Randy Owen’s on a remake of Alabama’s “Feels So Right.” Overall, this is another solid release from Clay.
