We are so proud of former UNC football star and former intern at K99 Jay Clementi. Jay left Colorado years ago to try his hand at recording in Nashville. It has turned into a brilliant move. Jay has been nominated for a Grammy for a project he was on and was on TV on a special called Soldiers Stories, about songwriting with veterans to help them heal and tell their stories. That is pure class.

Jay has now had songs recorded by Martina McBride, Sunny Sweeny, Darius Rucker, Dierks Bentley, Sara Evans, Luke Bryan and many others. Here is the interview we did with Jay today and a few of the awesome songs he has written. Congrats Jay! You are making Colorado proud.
