Kelly Clarkson Offers Nod To Deana Carter With Performance On Her Talk Show

As Kelly Clarkson chooses songs to perform for the “Kellyoke” segment of her talk show, she plucks pieces from all genres.

Clarkson often showcases country tunes. Over the years, she’s performed songs by Garth Brooks and Carrie Underwood, to name a few.

The move into the New Year meant it was time to prepare a new batch of covers. Clarkson picked an iconic country song as one of her first “Kellyoke” pieces of 2020…Deana Carter‘s “Strawberry Wine.”

Clarkson timed her cover performance perfectly. Carter celebrated her 54th birthday on January 4, just days before Clarkson sang “Strawberry Wine” on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

Carter was only 30 years old when “Strawberry Wine” debuted in 1996. The song instantly put her on the map, as it hit the top spot of the Hot Country Songs chart.

In addition, the song claimed the 65th position on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100.

Like she does for all of her “Kellyoke” covers, Clarkson took “Strawberry Wine” and offered her own take on the song. Even then, her take on “Strawberry Wine” remained pretty true to the style and feel of Carter’s original recording.

Clarkson sang at a standing microphone placed in the middle of her studio audience. Several people mouthed the words to the song during the performance, while others swayed to the beat of the music.

Those watching at home also voiced their approval of Clarkson’s rendition. See some reactions to her performance below:
