And with his new album, Bringing Back the Sunshine, out Tuesday, the Oklahoma native feels as if he’s getting back to his raising. “When life goes so fast, if you just pause for a minute and look back, you go, ‘Man, I got very far away from what I used to sound like,’ ” says the singer and The Voice mentor, who initially hit the country charts around the start of the new millennium with story songs such as Austin, Ol’ Red and The Baby. “You should do whatever you need to do as an artist to push yourself.

Clay Aiken Takes Lessons From ‘American Idol’ to the Campaign Trail – You seem to want to avoid the “Idol” history, but it’s what brought you here. If I had not been on “Idol,” chances are I wouldn’t be able to run in this race, and I understand that. But I got probably 70 percent of my votes on the show from North Carolina. So these folks who I’m trying to represent put me here. If you knew that you could win by making one ad that was just a song, would you do it? If it was a sure thing, yeah, I would do that. What song would you choose? You’re talking about hypotheticals that are clearly not going to happen. Well, I would hope that the same poll that said singing would make me win would have the foresight to actually ask which song as well. Do you think Obama has been a good president? I think every president is on a sliding scale somewhere. There are certainly areas where I disagree with him. Do you want him to come campaign for you? I don’t need that. We’re doing well. – Read more at The New York Times
