Sometimes country sometimes pop singer Kelly Clarkson has finally announced a brand new studio album. “Stronger,” the fifth studio album from the original American Idol winner, will be released on October 25th. Her debut single from the album “Mr. Know It All” will be launched with a live stream on her official website on August 30th. Fans can RSVP to the event on Facebook HERE.
Kelly has said in the past how her albums always have a country influence to them, and she still has not yet announced who the two duets are with yet on her album. With all the time she spends in Nashville lately, it’s pretty possible that it could be a country artist on at least one of the two duets. Kelly is managed by Narvel Blackstock, the husband to country music legend Reba McEntire. Blake Shelton is also on Starstruck Entertainment, and the pair have performed live in the past before at the Tornado Relief concerts in Oklahoma, and she did sing “Strawberry Wine” with Miranda Lambert at Blake’s Friends Concert after the ACM awards last year.
Kelly has performed on the ACMs in the past with Reba McEntire for “Because of You,” and with Rascal Flatts for “What Hurts The Most.” She recently had a number one country hit with Jason Aldean on “Don’t You Wanna Stay.”
Kelly has also tweeted that she’d love to do a Texas country album one day. What do you think about the chance of the original American Idol crossing over to country music? Would you welcome it? I’d, for one, would love it!
