Like a little black dress or having breakfast for dinner, Kelly Clarkson is one of those classics that never goes out of style. Sure, she got famous from American Idol, but she’s stayed famous because she’s the little powerhouse that could. She may not be the trendiest person to be into, but I don’t give a care, okay?! Because girl can SANG. It’s also worth noting that Kelly won the show back in 2002…which makes me feel two things: 1. old and 2. impressed, because she’s been performing and recording ever since.
But in all that time, she’s never done a legit country song, which was kind of an untapped field in my opinion, due to the richness of her voice. If singers are like alcohols, Kelly is a dark bourbon, straight from Kentucky, which is why I’m totally down with the fact that her newest single, ‘Tie It Up’, has a decidedly country twang. Wanna listen to it and see for yourself? You bet you do.
‘Tie It Up’ will be available on iTunes beginning June 25th.
