Walker McGuire splits

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 – Walker McGuire, who released an EP on Stoney Creek last year, have split.

The duo - Jordan Walker and John McGuire - announced via social media on Tuesday, ""We regret to inform everyone we've decided to end Walker McGuire. We want to thank everyone for their support and for following us on our journey the last five-+ years."

Walker McGuire released a new single, "Growin' Up," to country radio in October.

The group's website listed five concerts on the schedule. It was unclear if they were going to fulfill those obligations.

The two met onstage at a writers round just days after moving to Nashville. Walker was raised in Texas with a love for classics like Keith Whitley and Dan Seals. McGuire , a Kansas City native, was more roots oriented, influenced by John Prine and Tom Petty.
