Roses generally prefer a mildly acid soil.

Why is my rose bush producing significantly smaller flowers than it used to?

If the flowers are the same colour as last year it may be that because roses are greedy feeders and like a lot of fertilzer, good soil and water, if they don't get it the flowers suffer from the lack of vigour in the bush. Also if the roots have been damaged, such as sitting in water too long or not enough water, disease or insects, then that too will make the flowers smaller. If the flowers are not same colour, such as a semi double red, then the understock may have taken over because the top died.

I have a rose that I planted about 3 years ago, and it has never have a bud on it, it looks like a very healthy, hardy rose. I live in NC, and we have a lot of red clay out here. Is there something I can buy to put in the soil?

Have you checked the phosphate level of your soil? Sometimes a handful of triple phosphate worked into the soil around the dripline of the plant is all that is needed to make recalcitrant (but otherwise healthy) roses bloom.
