Kelly Clarkson starts her new talk show every day with what people started calling ‘Kellyoke’ which means every show she begins with a cover song by a different artist

  • The other day she covered Carrie Underwood’s iconic ‘Before He Cheats’

  • People are convinced that there is not a song Kelly can’t sing!
  • Carrie, though, will be in town at the United Center on her Cry Pretty 360 Tour on October 29th! Which also happens to be my birthday, so if you wanted to get me something…I wouldn't say no.

Everyone wants a friend like Keith Urban!

  • Both Brad Paisley and Darius Rucker asked Keith to jam at their shows over the weekend in London, BUT the issue was that both shows were on the same day at the same time!
  • So who did Keith choose to sing with?
  • Well, being the true friend that he is he hopped on the London tube and was able to jam with both artists!

When two good buddies of mine are playing two different venues at the same time on the same night and both invite me to jam——- what do you do ? - you say yes and take the London tube to make it happen ! Huge thx to @dariusrucker and the Hootie family - SO good to see you guys back on the road again - i had a blast !! AND huge thx to @bradpaisley and the band and crew for the shred fest!!!! SO much fun - as always!!!!! - KU
