OFFSTAGE: Kelly Clarkson Is Pulling a Miranda Lambert

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

This is what me and my friends call Single White Femaling someone. (Because of that creepy 1992 movie about a girl who copies everything her roommate does.) Not that it’s creepy that Kelly Clarkson has decided to copy Miranda Lambert’s girl band idea. In this case, it’s more of the imitation-is-the-sincerest-form-of-flattery kind of copying. Already Famous, which consists of Clarkson, Jill Pickering and Kate Rapier, is reportedly already in the studio making music. And they tweeted that, yes, they are indeed following in Lambert’s footsteps. “I love the Pistol Annies! We have a very different sound but I do love theirs! I can’t wait for their album!” So now we have two girl groups to look forward to. One country, one pop. To get a feel for what this Already Famous band will sound like, listen to their uber casual cover of Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb” and get ready to be blown away by Clarkson’s voice once again.
