Aiken For Clay
We're not sure if tickets for all of these shows have gone on sale yet, but it's a pretty safe bet that they won't -- or didn't -- last long. We saw what happened in the case of the December 9 show, the first one announced. When small venues and Clay Nation combine, the typical result seems to be crashed ticket systems and packed houses!

Several news sources report that Clay will be performing live on Good Morning America at 8:00 am on September 19. That's the same day his much-anticipated new album, A Thousand Different Ways, is scheduled to be released!

We've also learned that Clay will be given interview time during his forthcoming appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, in addition to the mini-concert held on the outdoor stage.
