At a very early age, identical twin brothers Clinton and Coty Walker started singing in church and opening local events and ball games, singing the national anthem. The duo opened for Johnny Cash in Branson, Mo., in 1994. They have sung both southern gospel and country music. They continued to perform and record gospel music while growing up in Bernie, Mo., and in recent years have jumped back into the country music genre, full-force.
Their debut single "The Life" has made a big impact on YouTube and their self-titled debut album tells stories of what it is like to grow up in a small town in the heartland. Brothers Walker say they owe everything they have to God and what he has done in their lives, and although they are pursuing a career in country music, Christian music and morals will always be a driving force behind what they do.
Recording artist Usher selected the duo to compete on Season 6 of NBC's "The Voice" earlier this year.
Their often autobiographical and humorous writing style makes their music memorable, and, being twins, the dynamics they share on stage in their big-harmony style of singing and their approach to entertaining a crowd make their live performances unforgettable!
