Joshua Ray Walker

April 28, 2023 @ 8:30 pm

Joshua Ray Walker takes the stage at the Bristol Bar FRIDAY, April 28th at 8:30 PM!
This is a free, non-ticketed event (21+).
On his new album See You Next Time, Texas-bred singer/songwriter Joshua Ray Walker shares an imagined yet
truthful portrait of a brokedown honky-tonk and themisfits who call it home: barflies and wannabe cowboys, bleary-eyed dreamers and hopelessly lost souls. His third full-length in three years, the album marks the final installment in a trilogy that originated with Walker’s globally acclaimed 2019 debut Wish You Were Here and its equally lauded follow-up Glad You Made It (the #5 entry on Rolling Stone’s Best Country and Americana Albums of 2020 list).
“The whole idea with the trilogy was to use the honky-tonk as a setting where all these different characters could interact with each other,” says Walker, who drew immense inspiration from the local dive bars he first started sneaking into and gigging at as a teenager growing up in East Dallas. “In my mind, this album’s taking
place on the night before the bar closes forever—the songs are just me taking snapshots of that world, and all the moments that happen in it.”
