Most recently, she performed Reba’s 1994 hit “Till You Love Me.” Gaining over 40,000 likes since posted, fans rushed to the comments, praising her. 

Looking at what the fans had to say, comments included, “I love how she kept the accompaniment more sparse and pared back. That choice allowed us to really hone in on the dynamic and stylistic choices she made in her version.” Another person added, “What a great Reba cover with the perfect amount of Kelly blended into the truth Reba gave this song. I would love to hear Kelly’s interpretation of the full version of “She thinks his name was John.”

Kelly Clarkson Discusses Touring With Kids

As for rubbing shoulders with fellow artists, Clarkson discussed the highs and lows of touring with Meghan Trainor. Currently preparing to hit the road, Trainor discussed how she is taking her husband, Daryl Sabara, and their two children on the road. Clarkson shared her own experience, explaining, “It’s about you getting proper sleep. And I’m going to warn you. I tried this. I tried this and it was fine with the one kid, but when you went out, when you tried with two — and then I had dogs, too — I was like, ‘Who do I think I am?’”

Giving her some advice, Clarkson insisted, “Can I give you a tip? I was going to say I have one tip for you and this is because I think a lot of — especially women — have so much guilt on the road, just in general, but especially with your kid, you feel like you have to wake up with them. Don’t do that. Have someone. Let him wake up with them. Sleep in as long as you can because you don’t go onstage for your vocals until late.”
