— "American Idol' runner-up Clay Aiken's success may not be up in the air, but his name sure is.

Fairway Outdoor advertising is honoring the hometown crooner on a billboard overlooking the beltline just east of Capital Boulevard in Raleigh.

Aiken's popularity continues to top Amazon.com's top seller list, too. His yet-to-be-realsed single has gotten four times as many orders that "Idol" winner and pal Ruben Studdard. Both singers have CD singles coming out on June 10.
