ARNAUDVILLE, LA - Clay Cormier has had a love of playing music for most of his life. In 2013, Clay Cormier begin to form a musical career that has since stretched out over a 4 year span. To some, 4 years sounds like a really long time, but in the music business 4 years really isn't that long to see the success that Clay Cormier has seen.
Well into his time playing his acoustic guitar to a room of only a few people, his career has quickly grown to include his band, the Highway Boys.
Clay Cormier and the Highway Boys have quickly established themselves as a vital part of the Acadiana music scene. Going from playing small town honky tonks to being featured on some of the biggest stages in Acadiana along side some of the biggest names in music, Clay Cormier and the Highway Boys are now starting to become a household name not only here in Acadiana, but also in Music City USA, Nashville, TN.
In September, Clay Cormier and the Highway Boys opened up for their first major artist and made the debut at the Blackham Coliseum in Lafayette for the Ragin Cajun Country Kick Off to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Acadiana. The Highway Boys opened up the show for Wayne Toups and Zydecajun and Country Music Legend Tracy Lawrence.
What the Highway Boys thought was just a fundraiser for an incredible Acadiana organization eventually turned into a career changing moment.
Just a month or so after their debut at the Blackham Coliseum, Clay Cormier received a call from Tracy Lawrence's manager inviting him to play on the biggest stage he's played on yet, THE WILDHORSE SALOON IN NASHVILLE, TN.
The stars are certainly lining up in Cormier's favor. He has just released his latest single, "I Don't Give A Damn," to the local radio stations and has also released his debut video for the song, and now will be packing up an heading to Nashville, TN to play the Wildhorse Saloon on November 21st.
