Accompanied by her band, Y’all, Clarkson effortlessly belted out the lyrics to the beloved country ballad. 

Fans flocked to the comments section on YouTube to praise her rendition of the country hit.

“Here comes my Queen the best vocalist on the planet just slaying everything. She literally has limitless talents,” wrote one user, while another begged her to team up with Keith Urban for a duet.

“Raining On Sunday” was written by Radney Foster and Darrell Brown. It was originally recorded by Foster in 1999 for her album, See What You Want To See. His version of the song featured background vocals from Darius Rucker.
