Is Kelly Clarkson trying to tell us something with all of these ’90s country covers?

In the latest segment of “Kellyoke” on The Kelly Clarkson Show, the superstar offers her take on Dwight Yoakam’s 1993 hit, “Fast As You.” The cover is one of several ’90s country covers Clarkson has shared in recent weeks, following 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.

Clarkson’s cover of this Dwight Yoakam classic remains similar to the original recording and is an absolute blast to watch.

“Fast As You” was written and recorded by Yoakam for his 1993 album, This Time. The song peaked at No.2 on the U.S. country charts and is one of his most iconic songs.

Previous “Kellyoke” segments have featured covers of Blake SheltonJohnny Cash, Jason Aldean, Rascal Flatts, Travis Tritt, Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood and Kelsea Ballerini (just to name a few).
