I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend. Especially the week after the “Idol” finale, I know only you true loyalists are hanging around today. I am back from New York and a four-hour flight delay that got me home at 3:40 a.m. I am feeling punchy!
Anyway, Clay Aiken (remember him?) is coming out with a new album. Sadly, it’s another cover album. The man seems allergic to singing new music.
And he called the album “Tried and True,” a signal that yes, he is treading old ground. Sadly, he and Ruben are NOT coming to Atlanta on the summer tour.
He was on “Good Morning America” today, where you can see the Claymates:
-David Archuleta’s book “Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song, and the Power of Perseverance” is out today. Yes, his publisher had the temerity to call it a memoir. We debated that term earlier but it does seem like the most pretentious book title ever, eh?
Here’s Diana DeGarmo singing “Easy to Be Hard” on the Early Show on CBS last Friday. She was born to be on Broadway.
