By now, Kelly Clarkson has reinvented a number of country music hits for the “Kellyoke” segment of The Kelly Clarkson Show. Since the show’s debut, Clarkson has covered songs by everyone from Lee Ann Womack to Garth Brooks.
Together, the four coaches sang Brooks & Dunn‘s “Neon Moon” while Daly played guitar.
But that “Neon Moon” cover wasn’t the only time Clarkson visited a 90s country hit for “Kellyoke.”
For one episode, Clarkson opted to deliver her own take on Travis Tritt‘s feisty single from 1991, “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares).” The song peaked at the second spot on the country charts in both the U.S. and Canada.
Today, “Here’s a Quarter” remains one of Tritt’s most well-known works.
Since “Here’s a Quarter” is full of attitude, Clarkson didn’t hold anything back in her cover. She delivered a sassy, soulful rendition of the song that the crowd seemed to thoroughly enjoy.
On top of being full of personality, Clarkson’s rendition of “Here’s a Quarter” perfectly showcased her vocal talents. The song gave her the opportunity to roar into some strong, powerful notes, creating a dynamic performance.
We could talk about Clarkson’s “Kellyoke” performance of “Here’s a Quarter” all day, but it’s better if you just witness it yourself. You can do so by tuning in to the video below.
Clarkson may be known as a pop star, be she’s proving to be the queen of country covers! Which 90s country song would you like to hear her sing next?
