    Tried and True is a great title for his new album!!!

    Wonderful news!

  3. I also love the title Tried and True. What a great choice. Love the man, love the title and am sure I will love the CD.

  4. This is so exciting… We finally have the name for the CD, and I hope everyone who is going to the Clay Aiken show in Raleigh will have a wonderful time…I wish I was going too.

  5. This is fantastic. This CD is going to be awesome and a televised live performance… professionals…. This is a dream come true for all Clay fans…and you can hear the excitement in Clay's voice…. I'm going to see Clay Aiken….It doesn't get much better than that….


  6. Clay aiken, new CD Tried and True and a PBS Special all rolled up together. Can't get any better than that! Glad Clay was able to get the word out FIRST himself.

  7. I am so excited! Things don't get much better than seeing Clay sing and film a PBS special!
    I cannot wait!

  8. What a classy way to announce the news. An e-mail to each of us makes the event even more special.

    I am so excited.

  9. What an exciting day! Congratulations to all of you who will be able to go. I can't wait for your reports. I'm excited for the televised concert too. I'm so glad Clay Aiken and his team were able to tell the news FIRST!

  10. Posting an email from clayonline meant to get the members of the OFC first dibs at the tickets was tacky. Betcha they'll end up on ebay.

    • Actually, if you read the email closely, the presale will be available only to fan club members through a link on the fan club site… which can only be accessed by members. There is no way for anyone else to get a jump on the tickets, unless they also happen to be a member and they still can only purchase two tickets. Posting the email here does not jeopardize that in the least.

    • Jane……I don't understand what you mean?? DId you read the e-mail?? To purchase the tickets, you must go through the fan club and you can only buy 2 tickets. There is NEVER a way that tickets won't get on E-Bay, however, this will be the hardest way for that to happen.

      What is your suggestion for a better way to sell the tickets?

  11. I am sooo excited! I wish I could somehow get to Raleigh. Anyone lucky enough to go must report back and let us know everything. Playlists, orchestrations and of course the important things like hair color, glasses or not and suit style 🙂 Go Clay!!! 🙂

  12. How exciting…cannot wait for Clay's televised Special. I love the name of his cd..Tried and True. This is all so awesome…and I hope everyone who gets to go has a great time. Give Clay the love.
