Since shooting to stardom on the second season of American Idol, Clay Aiken, the Raleigh, NC, native with the powerhouse voice has become a international pop phenomenon who has sold six million albums. In addition, Aiken has launched eight live tours, made the New York Times best-seller list, and won several American Music and Billboard Music Awards. In January 2008, Aiken made his Broadway debut in the Tony Award-winning musical Monty Python's Spamalot. When Clay began the search for songs to record for Aiken's first album of original material since his 2003 chart-topping debut Measure of A Man, he fell in love with a song written by OneRepublic front man Ryan "Alias" Tedder called "On My Way Here." The message of the lyrics -- how the lessons we learn while growing up shape us into who we become as adults -- struck such a deep chord with Aiken that it wound up inspiring the theme (and title) of his new collection. To musically represent the album's lyrical theme, Aiken and Foster enlisted Grammy-Award winning British songwriter and producer Kipper, who has worked with Sting, Chris Botti, and Julia Fordham.

Actually pretty boring. One Standout song, The Real Me. Stick with his debut, which was his artistic peak, it seems.

"with this excellent third cd by Clay Aiken. While its the first of his cds that i've bought. I found myself partial to the title song "On My Way Here" written by Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic). It starts off the album very well and Clay's voice handles each song like it is meant for that individual song.
While i enjoyed the album very much. I am really fond of certain tracks:
"On My Way Here"
"Everything I Need"
"Something About Us"
"Where I Draw The Line"
"Weight of the World"
"Lover All Alone" a song he cowrote on
With this release Clay continues to cement himself firmly in the music business and should continue to have much success now and in the future with this one. I will look into his other cds and plan on buying at least another one of them in the next few months without question. He's a great talent that shouldn't be overlooked because of his AI connection or whatever other reason.
Purchase "On My Way Here" and hear the cd that has folks excited all over the country."
Clay's best effort to date

"Clay finally got a chance to make an album as HE wished it to be, and IMO he knocked it out of the ball park with every song. I enjoy the variety of song styles, which makes for a fantastic album overall. Great listening all the way through, over and over. Thoughtful lyrics throughout. I love it!"
