Kelly Clarkson is currently on her "Meaning of Life" tour and while she's performing her own slew of hit singles, she's also doing covers of some of her favorite songs. Throughout the trek, she's performed songs by Patsy Cline, Lady Gaga, and Lauryn Hill.
Last week in Detroit, Clarkson performed her own rendition of Brandi Carlile's "The Joke." Watch the performance above.
“She is so inspiring, and talented and just a really rad human,” Clarkson says of Carlile, before adding, “I hope I do it justice, Brandi.”
Clarkson’s "Meaning of Life Tour" continues this week with a show in the singer’s hometown of Texas. The tour runs through March 30th, with stops in Boston, Baltimore and Nashville. Her latest album, Meaning of Life, was released in 2017.
Brandi Carlile, meanwhile, will hit the road on her own tour starting March 23rd, playing Panama City Beach, Florida. She is also set to appear at a number of festivals this summer, including Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass and the Moon River Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Recently, Carlile won big at the 2019 Grammy Awards. She took home the award for Best American Roots Performance and Best American Roots Song for "The Joke." She also won Best Americana Album for By the Way, I Forgive You. She was also nominated for Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.
