The Kelly Clarkson and Reba McEntire love affair continues!
Kelly appeared earlier this year on Reba's television show, and the two will be featured on an episode of CMT's "Crossroads" series later this year.
Now comes word that Kelly and Reba have recorded a duet of Kelly's chart-topping hit "Because of You" that will serve as the lead single for McEntire's highly anticipated duets album, which is due in stores this fall. Kelly and Reba originally sang the song as part of "Crossroads" series, and apparently they were so pleased with the results they decided to record it.
According to "Country Weekly" magazine, Kelly and Reba will debut their version of the song on the Academy of Country Music Awards, which Reba is hosting next month. Other artists singing with Reba on the duets album include Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Faith Hill, Ronnie Dunn, Justin Timberlake, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, and LeAnn Rimes.
Talk about things coming full circle -- Reba was the first music celebrity to truly acknowledge Kelly's talent after her victory on American Idol, performing "Does He Love You" with the now Grammy winning superstar at the Las Vegas Reunion Special in 2002. Now Reba will be singing a song that Kelly wrote and recorded. Wow.
Stay tuned for more info...
