Kelly Clarkson Takes Taylor Swift’s ‘White Horse’ for a Ride
Throughout her recent ‘All I Ever Wanted’ tour, season one American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson sang a slew of covers during soundchecks and pre-show performances, including Taylor Swift‘s ‘White Horse.’ This week, some of those songs captured on tape hit YouTube.
Other covers Kelly put her unique spin on include Hank Williams‘ ‘Your Cheating Heart,’ Elvis Presley‘s (and Willie Nelson‘s) ‘Always on My Mind,’ the Rolling Stones‘ ‘Wild Horses,’ the Cranberries‘ ‘Linger,’ Sheryl Crow‘s ‘My Favorite Mistake’ and U2‘s ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.’
Back in September, Kelly gave Taylor praise in another form when she openly lashed out after Kanye West interrupted Taylor’s acceptance speech at the VMA’s live in New York City. Kelly posted a letter to Kanye on her website in which she wrote, “Taylor Swift, you outsell him … that’s why he’s bitter. You know I love your work! Keep it up girl!”
