Multiple Sclerosis to Get Help from Clay Walker


March 17, 2017

Country singer Clay Walker will once again host his Chords of Hope event on June 6, 2017, in Nashville. The benefit concert supports his charity, Band Against MS, which is a personal passion for Walker, who was diagnosed with MS in 1996. Donations raised fund research, education, and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis and go to Nashville’s MS Center at Vanderbilt Medical Center.

“This is our 8th year putting together Chords of Hope and every year the event and even the fans who come out and support keep getting better,” said Walker in a press release. “The amount of money that continues to get raised to help support research and education through BAMS and the MS Center at Vanderbilt is incredible and this night is truly a special one for me and for Music City!”

Band Aginst MS (also known as BAMS) has raised more $4.5 million and the Chords of Hope event has raised well over $200K -- just for the MS Center at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Fans can purchase tickets here.
