Kelly Clarkson‘s current country single, “Tie It Up,” is seriously great. If you haven’t stopped by iTunes to grab it yet, you should. You won’t be disappointed.
Written by Shane McAnally, Ashley Arrison, and Josh Osborne, the single gives homage to Clarkson’s story with fiancé Brandon Blackstock and their life right now since they will soon be tying the knot!
Check out a behind-the-scenes video of the making of “Tie It Up.” There is one part where Clarkson is wailing like only she can (approximately 0:28-0:48). The song really showcases her amazing, goose-bump worthy range and pure tone. She’s the vocal queen.
McAnally says in the video, “Isn’t that the best thing you ever heard in your life?” Yes, it is… yes, it is!
Don’t worry! Kelly Clarkson is still marrying Brandon Blackstock! However, after spending an abundance of time (that this music industry couple just doesn’t have to spare) on wedding planning, Kelly and Brandon made the executive decision to scrap their big wedding plans and simply elope.
Kelly explained to People Magazine that between her Christmas album, partnership with State Farm, Brandon’s responsibilities as Blake Shelton‘s manager, and the couple raising two children (from Brandon’s previous marriage), there was no time to plan such an extravagant event. The couple intends to exchange vows in the presence of a minister and Brandon’s two children, but will be celebrating with their friends and family at their newly built Nashville home.
Kelly’s latest video for her country single, “Tie It Up,” premiered last week. You can check out the wedding-themed video here:
It is no secret that we love Kelly Clarkson, and we’re pretty excited because radio officially played her new country single, “Tie It Up,” today! That means, studio quality audio has surfaced!
The song is very true to Clarkson’s life right now and her upcoming wedding. She will be marrying Starstruck talent manager, Brandon Blackstock, this fall.
“Tie It Up” was co-written with close friend and singer-songwriter, Ashley Arrison, Shane McAnally, and Josh Osborne. That’s a great songwriting team right there! The song is catchy and fun, and Clarkson’s vocals are always second to none. This is the three-time Grammy winner’s first up beat country single, and what a good choice it was. It has radio hit written all over it.
We are so thrilled that Clarkson is releasing more country music in addition to pop! The single is expected to be released to iTunes and other digital formats on June 25th.
Also, Clarkson is looking for fun wedding photos for the lyric video for “Tie It Up.” Tweet your pictures to @kelly_clarkson with #tieitupvideo. Kelly will be picking her favorites!
