Joshua Ray Walker Reimagines Lionel Richie’s ‘Hello’ as Country Rave-Up
By Joseph Hudak, May 21, 2021
Texas singer-songwriter releases his version with a shot-by-shot remake of the epically cheesy Eighties video.
“Joshua Ray Walker kicked off a tour with the duo Carolina Story on Wednesday night at City Winery in Nashville, delivering a tight 30-minute set of songs off his two stellar albums, Wish You Were Here and Glad You Made It. Alas, the Texas singer-songwriter’s cover of Lionel Richie’s “Hello” didn’t make the set list.
But Walker delivers the goods on Friday with a new studio recording of the 1984 hit, along with a cheeky shot-by-shot remake of Richie’s iconic music video.”
