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

Opening Banter

"We're doing songs from an era I have no recollections of." *g*

"Kind of a romantic show so if you came with someone you love, snuggle up to them. If sitting next to a complete stranger, it's your business what you do with them."

We're Back.

Intro to Quiana: "She talks too much but she's looking real pretty."

Many songs he's performed over the years that he's enjoyed singing live. Songs that have been Pop songs that he'd like to sing in this show but hard to do with this show and keep the vibe. So maybe should do what they'd sound like had they been recorded in 1952.

The Way.

Clay sang some of the words the way originally sung.

Radio Banter:

Clay: "Any listeners to Top 40 radio?"

Lady Gaga, someone else, Liza Minneli (sp ???????), Bieber, Jonas Brothers.

Explains difference between recording back in the day versus now.

What SM would sound like 2011 style......gives demo.

Clay: "It's beautiful isn't it?" laughter.

Clay: "I think Lady Gaga is extremely talented. Actually, Justin Bieber has a good voice. Some who actually can sing that are on the radio right now but....

Crying is So gorgeous.

Clay - screwed him up last night when he did the song on the 'wrong' side of the stage. Messed up he and Quiana. Good to be back on the right side tonight.

No one he'd rather sing with.
