Clay Aiken - Where I Draw The Line

Clay Aiken's song continues its run on AOL Top 11 videos. It has a bit of a country feel to it. It isn't surprising that Clay can sing in that style because he grew up on country music and he used to front a country band (Just By Chance) before he appeared on American Idol.

  7. This is a great song! I love every song Clay Aiken has ever sang. His new CD - On My Way Here is great and this is one song I never skip. Oh! I don't ever skip any of them. :)

  8. My favorite song from Clay Aiken's demos is "Not Supposed to Love You Anymore" also. I love his lower register. "Where I Draw the Line" reminds me so musch of "Not Supposed to Love You Anymore". Both songs are wonderful.

    Sometimes I think Clay should have gone the country route! All this song needs are a couple steel guitars. I love this song. I want to hear it in concert!

    Where I Draw the Line by Clay Aiken is one of my favorites too. His demo he recorded back before he became famous is great, especially I'm Not Supposed To Love You Anymore and I Know How the River Feels. The man certainly can sing.

    After hearing this, I looked for more of Clay Aiken's songs. Are any more of them country. I'm kinda partial to country music. Does anybody have any recommendations?

    Where I Draw the Line is just beautiful. And I'm sure it has a great deal of meaning to Clay Aiken, after all he's been through. I hope we're nearing the end of the absurd smear campaign.

  18. Chexxxy,

    I totally agree. Clay Aiken has a very strong country background. What I love about his music is that he is so versatile -- you name the style, and he can sing it.

    So glad "Where I Draw the Line" is still receiving recognition in the AOL countdown.

    Have a great weekend!

    Yes. Clay Aiken sings country very well. One of his old songs from when he was young, "I'm Not Supposed to Love You Anymore," makes a mess of my emotions every time I listen to it.

    I, for one, would like to see a Gospel CD by Clay Aiken, as well! I'll take one of each please. heh.

    I didn't know Clay Aiken could sing country until I saw a clip of him singing a bluegrass song at a concert. It was awesome, he should do more like that. This was good too, like a pop-country crossover song.

  26. Clay Aiken sings country like a pro. I love Where I Draw the Line, one of the 12 favourites on OMWH!

    I Know How the River Feels from the demo is awesome, I made my first simple montage from it a few years ago. I just got a new comment on it at YouTube today.

  39. Clay Aiken has a great song in Where I Draw The Line. It's one of my favorites on the cd. I think we all, to some extent, draw a line around our hearts and there are only a priviledged few who earn our trust enough for us to let them past that line.

  51. My sisters favorite song from Clay Aiken is "Where I Draw The Line". She is not a fan at all but caught him on QVC, of which she is a junkie, and really liked it a lot. She is a country music fan and thinks it fits right in with today's country music. Me, I love the entire album.

    I love Clay Aiken's new album. I hate albums that every song sounds the same. This album is eclectic. Pure pop, a touch of R&B, jazz, country and soft rock. It doesn't get any better. It amazes me that he can sing anything and sound awesome. Whoever asked, I think It's in Every One of Us has some Gospel flair in it too. Love this album.
