Clay Aiken – On My Way Here!

On my way here
Where I am now
I’ve learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I’ve fallen hard
But I’ve been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here.

On May 6, 2008, Clay Aiken released his 4th full-length album.  It was titled On My Way Here.

According to Wikipedia:

Aiken wanted to get away from using multiple producers and chose Grammy Award-winning British producer Mark ‘Kipper‘ Eldridge (Sting, Chris Botti) to produce the album. Jaymes Foster was the executive producer. This was his final studio album for RCA.

The title track, “On My Way Here”, written by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder along with Hunter Davis and Chris Faulk, was the only single released. The song was originally for Tedder’s debut album back in 2002, under Freelance Entertainment, which became defunct before the album could release. The song is about how the lessons we learn growing up shape us into the adults we become. This struck a chord with Aiken and the song became the inspiration for the album’s theme.

The album, sold 94,000 albums in its first week. It made its debut in the #4 position on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard Top Internet Albums.

  1. I don’t know when I listened to “On My Way Here” but Clay’s voice is absolutely beautiful and Clay needs to get back in the studio and record. Everyone needs to hear him!

    Thanks for bringing it here – another favorite – which one isn’t!

  2. One of my favorite songs from my top favorite of Clay's CDs! I believe the last time I heard him sing this song was last week while driving to my mothers' home! Hope you are having a wonderful time in New York!

  3. The songs on that album are all wonderful. I especially like 'Everything I Don't Need' with that little growl that Clay did.
