Kelly Clarkson Covers “Go Rest High On That Mountain” VIDEO

Kelly Clarkson performed her last North American concert date in her adopted home of Nashville, TN. Her fan requested cover was a song she revealed that she sang all the time as a kid, “Go Rest High On That Mountain” by Vince Gill.

The bands, including The Fray, joined her on stage for “Stronger” at the end of the show.  Kelly also performed Carrie Underwood’s “I Know You Won’t”.

    Oh my! She was fabulous on Go Rest High On That Mountain! It’s such a beautiful song. Have to admit it made me tear up. I really love her version of I know You Won’t and was so happy to get to hear her sing it live.

    Oh, I love that song. I have that Vince Gill album, so good. Kelly is queen. She’s on my bucket list for concerts, for sure!

    That Vince Gill song is such a beautiful song, add in her voice and the dedication to the passing of her good friend/guitar player’s uncle this past week equals me actually having a tear (or many) in my eye.  Here’s a close and clear audio version:

    Since she mentioned him offhandedly in the intro, Kelly also told someone backstage last night after receiving a gift from them that she and Brandon have gotten a house together.

    Brian Mansfield was at the show and tweeted out a couple things Kelly said:

    Kelly Clarkson on her CMA nomination: “I haven’t earned it yet. But I promise you I will.”

    Having lived off & on in Nashville for several years, @kelly_clarkson says it’s official now, “because my boyfriend lives here.”

    “I love depressing music,” @kelly_clarkson says, “but that’s probably also why I love country music so much.”

    Narvel requested the Carrie song and Kelly requested the Vince Gill song.  lol
