Tried & True was released June 1st on Decca, and made an impressive debut in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart. Considered the record Aiken was always meant to record, the disc is comprised of songs from the ’50s and ’60s that are personal favorites of the singers’ he grew up listening to as a child. Clay will continue to perform these standards on the national “Tried & True” tour. “I truly have the best fans in the world,” says the singer. “As long as they keep coming back, I’ll keep performing.”
