Clay Aiken @ Minglewood Hall

Monday Mar 7, 2011 8:00 PM

- All Ages Show -


w/ Special Guest

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.

"My birth father was a musician and my mother sang in a band when I was a little kid," Aiken says. "There was always music playing in the house. A lot of the songs on Tried and True, like 'Unchained Melody,' 'Suspicious Minds,' 'It's Only Make Believe,'and 'Crying,' are songs my mother used to sing. If folks do think I sound at home on this album, it's probably because singing these songs came very naturally for me. I never took sheet music or lyrics into the vocal booth. I knew them so well that I didn't need to."

EEEEEEEEEEE!!! I got my tickets in the WKNO reserved seat section, hooray -- only cost me $100 a ticket, but for their PBS pledge drive supporters, you get to sit in a section up front! :nana:

Yeeks, general admission. It's gonna be a crush I betcha. This will be the easiest concert for me to get to coz it's only 20 min. from my house. Clay hasn't been to Memphis since the AI2 tour. Now if I could only fit one more show in. It's a 4 hour drive to Knoxville from here. Hmm!! :think:
