Clay Walker Releases New Autobiography

Longtime country music star Clay Walker released a new autobiography this week entitled Jesus Was a Country Boy: Life Lessons on Faith, Fishing and Forgiveness.
From the press release:
The country music superstar talks about Jesus and the simple, faith-based lessons that he learned from his father. Like the country boy next door, Jesus modeled a grassroots faith that can move mountains. He didn’t come to start a mega-church or raise money for a new sanctuary. He didn’t come for the religious elite or people who think they have all the answers. He came for good old boys and country gals. He came to love and show that knowing his father is as free and easy as a summer breeze on a front-porch swing. If you want to find God, then it’s time to lose religion and meet a country boy from Bethlehem. Clay writes with a lack of pretense and a hands-on attitude toward life, drawing from his own humble beginnings and reminding readers what it means to be grounded in faith and home-grown in love. 
Clay Walker made his debut in 1993 with the single “What’s It to You,” which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. His first four studio albums all achieved platinum certification in the United States, and his greatest hits collection and fifth studio album were each certified gold. In addition, he has charted thirty singles on the country charts, including four more #1 hits, for a total of six. In the midst of his success, Walker went public with his diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in 1996 and founded a nonprofit foundation (Band Against MS) to fund MS research and education. The foundation has raised more than $2 million to fight MS. In 2008, he received a Humanitarian Award for his charitable efforts.
