The ABC family, that is.

Country music adoptee, Kelly Clarkson, excitedly posted a picture of herself with her country music pseudo-mama, Reba McEntire, tonight at ABC’s Upfronts.

Kelly will be starring as a judge and performer on the upcoming ABC show “Duets,” alongside country artist Jennifer Nettles and singers Robin Thicke and John Legend. “Duets” premieres on Thursday, May 24, at 8:00pm EST/7:00pm CST. Reba’s Malibu Country will premiere this fall on the ABC network.

Kelly made her excitement to be a part of the ABC family well-known on Twitter, when she tweeted: “@reba and I are officially members of the ABC family woohoo!!” Reba quickly responded: “@kelly_clarkson Way to go KC!!!!!” Tune in this summer and this fall to see the newest members of the ABC family on their respective programs!

 

Video Premiere: “Run” – Matt Nathanson Ft. Sugarland

Matt Nathanson & Sugarland

Singer-songwriter, Matt Nathanson, celebrated the world premiere of the music video for his single, “Run,” yesterday. The track features Sugarland with Jennifer Nettles lending her smooth vocals, and appears on Nathanson’s latest album, Modern Love.

Nathanson is currently on tour opening for Kelly Clarkson on the Stronger Tour, and is also out on the road for his All Night Noise Tour. I had the pleasure of seeing Nathanson perform on the Stronger Tour back in January. He is a very talented artist with excellent stage presence, and he also happens to be extremely funny. If you have seen him live, you probably understand the quick shot of the scrabble board in the new video for “Run.”

Meanwhile, country super duo, Sugarland, will be hitting the road in April for their In Your Hands Tour. In addition, Nettles will be one of the judges/mentors on ABC’s upcoming show, Duets, along with Clarkson, Lionel Richie, and Robin Thicke.

Looks like Blake Shelton is rubbing off on Kelly Clarkson. The same week that she made her adviser debut on NBC’s The Voice, ABC announced that Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Nettles will be part of the cast for a brand new singing competition coming to ABC this Summer. “Duets” will star Kelly, Jennifer, Lionel Richie and Robin Thicke look for the newest talent in America to sing with them on the show. ABC is planning on taking the judges out of the chairs and on to the stage to do what they do best – sing and perform – with their two new proteges. It should be interesting to see how Kelly and Jennifer do.
