Clay Aiken – Ah, The Possibilities!

Does Clay Aiken know the excitement that he creates in the ClayNation when he blogs and especially when he asks for our help?

It has been so much fun reading at Clay Aiken fan boards for the past few days.  The majority of Clay’s fans are ready and willing to do whatever they can to back Clay in his professional endeavors.

With the Tried & True Tour only six weeks away, the announcements about the tour are beginning to show up all over the web.

Did you see this article from The Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie, Texas.  It is a wonderful write-up that relates so much information about Clay and the Tried & True album.  The following is only a small part of the article.  To read the entire article, visit VerizonTheater. The picture they use is nice too.

Clay Aiken has never sounded more at home than he does singing the lushly arranged classics on his fifth studio album Tried and True – the international pop phenomenon’s first album for Decca Records. The bulk of the album – which showcases Aiken’s powerful tenor voice and considerable interpretive gifts – is made up of songs from the ’50s and ’60s that Aiken grew up listening to as a child in Raleigh, North Carolina……..

“Timeless” tour-goers will no doubt be delighted with the classics that appear on Tried and True. “I’ve done well with adult audiences in the past,” Aiken says, “whereas my past albums have been about trying to sing songs just because they might appeal to Top 40 radio, this album is a chance to do what I want to do: Sing songs that I think are great and not try to put a square peg in a round hole.”

WRCH Lite 100.5FM is a radio station in Farmington, CT.  Their format is Adult Contemporary.  On December 27th, they posted an announcement about Clay’s tour and they plugged his concert on February 20th.  The tour is making a stop at the Palace Theater in Waterbury, CT.  Why not visit the site and leave a comment.  It would be nice for the radio station to know that Clay Aiken has lots of funs that support the tour and are looking forward to hearing his music on their radio station.  It’s easy….you don’t even have to register.  You can visit the webpage by visiting WRCH

The Houston Symphony just mailed out a bulletin regarding upcoming performances.  On the front is a picture of Clay and it includes the date and time of the concert.  Inside the bulletin they wrote the following:

The following billboard was seen this week in Pittsburgh.  Wish we had something like this near my home.

We only have six weeks to wait for the tour.  Lets hope we see a lot more great promotion for Clay and the tour.  Are you lucky enough to have tickets to attend a concert?  Which one are you attending?
