On My Way Here is the fourth full length studio album released by Clay Aiken on May 6, 2008. This album of both ballads and pop-rock is an eclectic mix of styles and tempos. Aiken wanted to get away from using multiple producers and chose Grammy Award-winning British producer Mark 'Kipper' Eldridge (Sting, Chris Botti) to produce the album. Jaymes Foster was the executive producer. This was his final studio album for RCA.
The title track, "On My Way Here", written by OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder along with Hunter Davis and Chris Faulk, was the only single released. The song was originally for Tedder's debut album back in 2002, under Freelance Entertainment, which became defunct before the album could release. The song is about how the lessons we learn growing up shape us into the adults we become. This struck a chord with Aiken and the song became the inspiration for the album's theme.
The last track "Lover All Alone", written by Aiken and David Foster and originally available as an iTunes bonus with Aiken's A Thousand Different Ways album, was produced by Emanuel Kiriakou.

“The time must come, my friend ... when brutality and the lust for power must perish by its own sword....

For here we shall be, with their books, and their music, and a way of life based on one simple rule: Be kind.”
—Robert Riskin (18971955)
