Kelly Clarkson Goes Country with “Tie It Up”

clarkson-472x472Kelly Clarkson has been flirting with country music for the past few years and her new single, “Tie It Up” finds her extending that flirtation.

A little bit of country, a heavy dose of catchy pop hooks and that amazing voice that has won her so many fans. Kelly Clarkson definitely croons her best Southern charm with this refreshingly upbeat wedding song.
