Kelly Clarkson Gushes Over “The Greatest Show I Will Ever Attend”

The “King of Country” took over Metlife Stadium Saturday (June 8) in East Rutherford, New Jersey. However, Strait didn’t show up alone. He had the enormous talents of Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town to back him up.

All three country acts played before a sold-out crowd, which included Kelly Clarkson. The “Breakaway” singer began giddily chronicling her night on Instagram almost immediately as Little Big Town took the stage.

@littlebigtown is killing it in Jersey tonight, y’all!!” she wrote. “Looking forward to @chrisstapleton and the KING @georgestrait WHAT AN AMAZING LINE UP OF TALENT ❤️❤️❤️”

Next, the “Tennessee Whiskey” singer stepped up to the mic. “this is the greatest show I will ever attend,” Kelly Clarkson gushed. “You are crazy gifted and your whole band is incredible!”

Clarkson seemed to have an infinite supply of excitement that continued well into Strait’s set. “@georgestrait y’all!! I love him so much!” she enthused on Instagram. “What a great night of music!”

Strait played on, and still the “Since U Been Gone” singer didn’t run out of praise. “This is the greatest night ever! Good God these vocals, the catalog of songs!” Clarkson wrote in a fourth Instagram post. “What a blessing to get to experience this in person ❤️ thank you @georgestrait and @chrisstapleton.”

Morgane Stapleton, wife of the “White Horse” singer, showed her appreciation with a heart emoji.

Additionally, one fan expressed their desire to see a duet from Stapleton and the daytime TV host. “I still dream of the day you take the stage and sing with him!” they commented, followed by a “praying hands” emoji.
