Kelly Clarkson Is "Almost" Finished With Full Country Album

FUSE TV - Kelly Clarkson Is "Almost" Finished With Full Country Album

Kelly Clarkson has been flirting with country music since her time on American Idol. But within the last few years, her love for country has exploded: She recorded a hit duet with Jason Aldean in 2010, got engaged to Reba McEntire's stepson last year and dropped a honky-tonk take on a wedding tune, "Tie It Up," this summer.

Now it looks like Clarkson's sideline hobby will turn into a full-time occupation after the original Idol finishes her current tour and releases her upcoming Christmas album, Wrapped In Red.

"We've made almost a whole record," Clarkson told Albany, NY's GNA radio. "We haven't finished because I'm on tour, but we've made a whole record I'll end up releasing."

But don't fret, fans of Kelly the Pop Diva: She isn’t make this a permanent career change.

"With Jewel and Sheryl Crow, they kinda quit in pop and came over to country," Clarkson said. "I love both. I don’t necessarily know if I have one foot in it and one foot in the other."

That's a relief. Because the Kidz Bop Kids desperately need Clarkson's pop music, as evidenced below.
