Review – Doc Walker

By: Amanda Hather

Album – The 8th
iTunes Link –
Release Date – October 21st, 2014
Genre – Country

Doc Walker, with a whopping 12 CCMAs, 30 hit singles and many other awards and achievements, is definitely one of Canada’s most known and loved country acts. Throughout their career they have released eight studio albums, including the aptly named ‘The 8th’. With so much success leading up to this album, the Manitoba band has very high expectations, and they do not disappoint.

A combination of faster songs such as “Put It Into Drive” and “Shake It Like It’s Saturday Night”, and slower songs such as “Park The Car” and “Celebration” make up the album. Personally my favourite off of the album would have to be “It Won’t Hurt (If My Heart Don’t Know)” because of its catchy lyrics and upbeat vibe, even if the story behind the song isn’t exactly upbeat.

Over all, the album was very well done and put together. The fans of Doc Walker will not be disappointed by their newest album and it’s sure to bring the band even more awards.

Rating: 3/5

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
