Kelly Clarkson began a new week of ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ with a special Kellyoke with Dwayne Johnson! The duo kicked off the daytime chat program by performing together, Loretta Lynn’s 1967 classic ‘Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’.
The duo paid homage to the late country legend’s first No. 1 smash on the Hot Country Songs list. Johnson is best recognised for his acting, but he also has his own Billboard Hot 100 entry, ‘You’re Welcome,’ from Disney’s Moana, which debuted at No. 83 on the all-genre chart in 2016.
Check out, Clarkson and Johnson pay respect to Lynn:
‘Don’t Come Home a Drinkin,’ from the late country icon’s eighth solo studio album, gave the ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter’ her first No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs list, a feat she would repeat 15 times over her illustrious career. Tammy Wynette sang it on her 1967 album ‘Your Good Girl’s Gonna Go Bad’ and Gretchen Wilson covered it on her 2010 LP ‘Coal Miner’s Daughter: A Tribute to Loretta Lynn’.
Clarkson also welcomed Sam Smith to join her for a Kellyoke duet of her own 2004 blockbuster ‘Breakaway’ last week before covering Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Traitor,’ Whitney Houston’s ‘Queen of the Night’ and Alec Benjamin’s ‘Let Me Down Slowly’ with Alessia Cara over her next four nights.
