  1. After his year off to spend with his son, Clay seems to have jumped back into the entertainment field headfirst. It's good to see this talented man being so active in such a variety of entertainment gigs. While some thought his career was falling off it appears it has been restarted, better than ever! Good for him!

  2. It has definitely been exciting in the claynation. I was so happy to see the Tried and True DVD at #5 this week. I think maybe PBS helped with that too. Also, Phineas and Ferb is a cute cartoon and Clay's character is adorable in it. I heard the d/l of that song went to #19 or so on itunes. The Timeless Tour is hilarious..I saw it in Melbourne and couldn't stop laughing. I will be watching the 2nd showing of his PBS Special tonight on WMFE Orlando and will be pledging for 2 tickets to the Hard Rock Cafe also.
