Former The Voice contestant Kaleb Lee returned to the hit show on Tuesday (Dec. 10) to perform a duet with his former coach, Kelly Clarkson.
Lee, who placed Top 6 on Team Kelly during Season 14 of the show, shared the stage with the vocal powerhouse to sing their recently released collaboration, “I Dream In Southern.”
The pair took center stage on what looked like a wooden porch and blended their voices together seamlessly to sing about everything they love about the south.
“I dream in blue bell, ice cream/ Momma calling through the screen/ Supper’s almost ready to eat/ I dream in football, Graceland/ Barbecue in Alabama sand slippin’ under my feet/ If I can’t spend my time in sweet Carolina/ Don’t take too long ‘for Georgia’s back on my mind/ I dream in symphonies of trains and crickets/ Where it’s always Christmas or summer (Yeah, Yeah)/I dream in Southern,” they sing throughout the chorus.
“I Dream in Southern,” which was co-written by Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Brandy Clark, was sent to Lee by Clarkson after he appeared on the show. She loved the song and suggested he record it and they ended up singing it as a duet.
“’I Dream In Southern’ is such a great song written by a powerhouse team,” Lee previously shared. “It’s just icing on the cake for Kelly to sing on it.”
The song is available to stream and purchase now.
