    I watched that whole video and I just loved it. My favorite song he sang on that tour was "Welcome To My World." I think I liked it so much because that was the tour where Clay found out he would be a daddy..and I always think he was singing that song about little Parker.

Listening to Clay sing Christmas music always adds to the season!! A very special Thanksgiving and Christmas season to everyone!! Hugs…Cookie
