With Kelly Clarkson's latest album, Meaning of Life, it seems the original "American Idol" winner's face is everywhere. From NBC's "The Voice" to hosting the Billboard Music Awards, she's more confident and in control than ever. Recently, she's been teasing the release of a cover of The Guess Who's iconic 1969 hit "American Woman" and today is the day it's seeing the light (June 6).
The cover comes from Paramount Network's new series "American Woman," which airs on Thursday at 10 p.m. EST. The series is loosely inspired by "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kyle Richards. Alicia Silverstone is the main character and struggles to raise her children after splitting with her husband. It takes place during the second wave of feminism in the 1970's and Clarkson, who was the first choice for the song idea, covers the classic by embodying strength and passion. The video that accompanies Clarkson's cover uses clips from the upcoming series.
Clarkson will perform the song tonight for the first time at the CMT Awards which airs at 8 p.m. The song starts off quiet but quickly begins building into solid roars from the Grammy winner and the cover suits her powerful pipes.
