Eight Kelly Clarkson Country Music Duets

She Just Fits Right In

Although Kelly Clarkson has never made a country album, she has dipped her toe into the country music world quite a bit. And whether it was a recorded song, a performance on an award show or a surprise guest onstage – Clarkson pairs well with country’s finest. Take a look back at her most successful, memorable and downright fantastic country duets.

  1. Aldean and Clarkson first performed their duet during the CMA Awards in 2010. In February of 2011, the song hit No. 1 on Billboard’s hot country songs chart and won single of the year and vocal event of the year at the ACM Awards the following year.

    In 2006, McBride and Clarkson came together to sing one of Reba McEntire’s most famous duets, “Does He Love You” during CMT Giants. And while I cannot find any video evidence of this performance, you will have to take my word that the ladies did a phenomenal job. Not many artists could stand their ground against the original McEntire and Linda Davis version, but McBride and Clarkson sure did.

  4. ”How Blue” and “Fancy” With Miranda Lambert

    In 2014, Clarkson honored McEntire once again, but this time with Miranda Lambert. McEntire even joined them onstage halfway through “Fancy.” It was an unforgettable moment during the American Country Countdown Awards.

  5. ”Ain’t Goin’ Down (’Til the Sun Comes Up)” With Trisha Yearwood

    Clarkson delightfully surprised fans when she started to sing Garth Brooks’ “Ain’t Going Down (Til’ the Sun Comes Up)” during the CMA Music Festival in 2013. Then, she took things to the next level when she invited Yearwood onstage to sing with her.

    The decision to add Yearwood and McEntire to this traditional track was a great one. These three ladies combine their voices to bring you Christmas spirit at its best.
