Clay Aiken – Meeting, Greeting, Trending, and More!

Friday…….another day of Clay Aiken in the news.  His name was everywhere.

Clay Aiken and his fans woke up on Friday morning to find out that Clay was on the TRENDING NOW LIST at Yahoo. The TRENDING NOW LIST  names the top searches that are on the web.  Of course the list is very fluid and changes within minutes.  However, the  name, Clay Aiken,  was listed in the #1 position for part of the morning and bounced around on the list for many hours.  It’s always glad to see that many people are still excited about Clay Aiken.


Members of the Clay Aiken Official Fan Club received an e-mail on Friday morning.  The e-mail announced the opportunity for Fan Club members to win a Meet & Greet with Clay while he is on the Tried and True Tour. The contest runs from Monday, January 24th at 10:00am PT through Thursday, January 27th at 11:55pm PT.

According to the e-mail, five winners will be chosen for each tour date.  The winners will be chosen through a random drawing and no one can win more than one Meet & Greet for this tour.
