Clay released his first album, “My Place Is With You”, in 1994. “I Surrender All” was the most successful single from the album.

Clay became known for singles such as “I Surrender All” and “He Walked A Mile In My Shoes” and “Saving The World”. He won the Dove Award for “Best New Artist of the Year” at the 25th GMA Dove Awards in 1995. Clay’s music has a pop soulful style. Nine songs from his first four projects became No. 1 singles. During this period, his “He Walked A Mile” won the 1997 CCM Adult Contemporary Song of the Year. He also collaborated with Bob Carlisle and BeBe Winans on “I Will Follow Christ”, which won a Dove Award for “Inspirational Song of the Year”.

After the release of “Christmas with Clay Crosse”, Clay served as worship pastor for The Love of Christ (TLC) Community Church in Memphis under head pastor, the late Dana Key (of the Christian Rock group DeGarmo and Key). He now serves as worship pastor at Faith Baptist Church, Arlington TN. Clay continues to sing and lead worship at events nationwide.
