i love myself something Kellyoke.
We’ve seen KElly Clarkson do countless country letters on the Kellyoke segment of her show before, and she never fails to impress.
But this might be my favorite…
Kelly took the stage with a special guest, Dwayne The Rock Johnsonlist Loretta Lynns first #1 hit “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ on Your Mind)”.
Unfortunately, Loretta it’s been almost two weeks now at her home in Hurricane Mills, Tenn. at the age of 90, and Kelly is very open about her love for good, real country music, so it’s cool to see her paying tribute to the country queen in this way.
And hey, Dwayne clearly isn’t a country music superstar, and Kelly could sing pretty much anyone under the table, but it was a really sweet gesture and a kickass duo if I’ve ever seen one. He held his own up there and I think they sounded really good together.
Dwayne has just as good in taste in country music like Kelly, so it’s great to see them bring it to the daytime TV crowds like that.
“Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin'” was released in late 1966 and peaked at the top of the charts in 1967 the following year.
It eventually became the title track of her eponymous album, which was eventually certified gold by the RIAA in 1970, and Loretta became the first woman in country music to receive such an honor.
Talk about an all-time country classic:
“Don’t Come Home to Drink (With Love on Your Mind)”
