Kelly Clarkson Song Turned Country

Kelly Clarkson’s Pop Hit “Mr. Know It All” Now Has A Country Version.

Kelly Clarkson is a pop singer with a powerhouse for a voice. Although she is not part of the country genre when it comes to her music, she has a lot of ties to the big family. She is from Texas, enjoys country music, has many friends who are currently staples in the country music scene, (Reba, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert to name a few) and blew people away with her duet “Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Jason Aldean.

Recently her pop hit “Mr. Know It All” was tweaked and changed to be played on country stations. The question is should it have been done? Some might argue that the lyrics fit right in with the things they hear on their local radio stations now, the only thing keeping it from being country is the music. Well…isn’t that a big part? Anybody could add some pedal steel to many songs and would make it more “country.” This is a big topic of debate these days, what is country?

Below are two videos…one that is the audio to the country version of “Mr. Know It All” and the other is the official music video for the original version (pop version) of “Mr. Know It All.”

Tell us what you think! Which version do you like better? Do you think she should do more country versions?
