    for finding all of this fun and interesting articles.

    your plans." I love this, but where was it said?

    • Katy, I believe that quote is from the song, When You Say You Love Me, from Clay’s Measure of A Man album

  4. This definatly made my day! It was nice to go back and think about when and where each saying was said 🙂 Clay Aiken is an amazing role model and there are so many lessons to be learned from him. Thanks CANN for posting 🙂

  6. I don't remember seeing this list before, but I do remember why they are listed. It's a cute list.

    Thank you for another day of loving Clay!!

  7. Love this!! I can remember hearing Clay Aiken say many of those things or reading about him saying them. The "too much salad can kill you" was on TRL when he and Kelly were on and were showing behind the scenes for their Independent Tour.
