Kelly Clarkson Sings The Hell Out Of The Willie Nelson Classic, “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain”

Kelly Clarkson can sing anything.

“Since You Been Gone,” the phone book, Willie Nelson classics… doesn’t matter. She’ll sing it and she’ll nail it. And to be honest, I wouldn’t be mad if she put out a legit, real deal country album.

We’ve seen her cover everything from Travis Tritt and Deana Carter, to Johnny CashChris Stapleton and she even started tearing up singing with Garth Brooks on her daytime talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show.

But in the latest version of Kellyoke, she had a go at Willie Nelson’s 1975 hit, “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain.”

Originally recorded by Roy Acuff in 1947, “Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain” was also recorded by Hank Williams, Bill Anderson, Conway Twitty, and more before Willie recorded it in 1975.

Which… was actually recorded by Willie for his Red Headed Stranger album, forty-six years ago TODAY.

Kelly Clarkson Reveals That Garth Brooks’ “The Dance” Is Helping Her Through Her Divorce.

Ah, “The Dance,” a Garth Brooks classic.

And as it turn out, ‘The Dance” is helping Kelly Clarkson work through her very public divorce right now, you know the one where her ex is seeking $436,000 dollars in spousal support… A MONTH.

Anyways, Garth recently stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show and Kelly revealed that not only is the song helping her right now, she finally understands it.

“I sang that song from childhood and it never hit me. I was literally bawling… because it is true. I think a lot of people who go through such a devastating… there’s a lot of grief and a lot of loss, and a lot of change, especially with kids….

But I got the point, and sometimes that’s so crazy. You known this song your entire life and you freak out when it’s actually a direct impact.”
