Clay Aiken - Meets the Literary World

Clay Aiken - Meets the Literary World

Six years ago I never imagined that falling in love with a nerdy guy who had an unbelievable voice would lead me into learning so much about so many different areas. From the music business, to autism, to the children of Uganda called “night commuters”, to the world of Broadway and now to the world of publishing. It’s been an incredible adventure Clay has taken us on and it’s only just begun.

The Clay Aiken News Network site has done it again. They've posted a well written explanation of exactly what a literary agent is responsible for doing.

Clay Aiken: Unbroken Record charted the debut singles for all 8 American Idol season winners and runners-up. The chart they did can be viewed here.

Clay Aiken still holds the record for the highest debut single sales. For now, Clay also holds the record for highest debut album sales. Below is the same chart in sales number order. Season and placement precede the names. The last 2 numbers (ex. #1 and #52) reflect chart positions, peak and debut. Kris Allen and Adam Lambert have only been on the charts for 1 week so their peak numbers may change.

2-R) Clay Aiken, "This Is The Night / Bridge over Troubled Water" - 393,000* - #1 (#1)
2-W) Ruben Studdard, "Flying Without Wings / Superstar" - 286,000* - #2 (#2)
7-W) David Cook, "The Time of My Life" - 236,024 - #3 (#3)
