Kelly Clarkson is the country covers queen!
The superstar recently performed a cover of Jason Aldean’s chart-topping hit, “You Make It Easy,” during the Kellyoke segment on The Kelly Clarkson Show. The three-time Grammy winner’s vocals soared throughout the chorus as she perfectly hit each and every high note.
“You Make It Easy” is featured on Aldean’s 2018 album, Rearview Town, and was co-written by Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley with Morgan Wallen and Jordan Schmidt.
Clarkson and Aldean have history together as they previously collaborated on the multi-week No.1 single “Don’t You Wanna Stay” in 2010. The song was a massive hit and took home the title of CMA Musial Event of the Year. It was also nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 54th Grammy Awards.
This performance is one of several country covers Clarkson has shared in recent weeks, following Billy Currington’s “Let Me Down Easy,” Faith Hill’s “It Matters To Me,” Pam Tillis’ “Maybe It Was Memphis,” Wynonna’s “No One Else On Earth” and Jo Dee Messina’s “Heads Carolina, Tails California.
