Kelly Clarkson Releases Countrified ‘Mr. Know It All’

Kelly Clarkson is no stranger to country music, having scored a No. 1 hit with the Jason Aldean collaboration ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay.’  She especially sounds like she fits in with the Taylor Swifts of the world on a new country version of ‘Mr. Know It All.’

The new recording slows down the tempo of the track and adds in mandolin, fiddle and slide guitar accents, creating a pleasant, upbeat melody, even as Clarkson sings the biting words, “That’s why I’m leaving you lonely, lonely / Cause baby, you don’t know a thing about me.

The new ‘Mr. Know It All’ is totally country without sounding forced at all. That’s a testament to the Texas-born singer’s versatility and the quality of the song, written by a team of writers that includes Ester Dean from Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Super Bass.’

In addition to the chart-topping Aldean duet, which just earned her two Academy of Country Music Awards nominations, Clarkson got to No. 2 on the country chart in 2007 with a re-recorded version of her hit ‘Because of You’ with Reba McEntire. We doubt Kelly will become a full-time country singer anytime soon, but she’s clearly capable of switching between genres whenever she pleases.
