The first season of The Kelly Clarkson Show has been a smash success. It is now the fourth most-viewed talk show in America, with only Dr. Phil, Live with Kelly and Ryan, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show earning more views.
So it came as no surprise when it was announced the show had been renewed for a second season!

One of the signature segments on The Kelly Clarkson show has been dubbed “Kellyoke.” During Kellyoke, Clarkson performs a covers of others artists’ songs.
She has already covered country music staples such as “Before He Cheats,” “Neon Moon,” and “To Make You Feel My Love.”
Another artist who is an expert at covering songs is Garth Brooks. So when he stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show, Clarkson asked if he’d mind sharing some of his favorite covers with her.
With his acoustic guitar in hand, Brooks delivered little snippets of songs such as Otis Redding’s “(Sitting On) The Dock of the Bay” and Bob Seger‘s “Night Moves.”
Then, Clarkson spoke about “To Make You Feel My Love,” and how she used to think it was an original song of Brooks’. She said she fully believed it was his song until she was 20 years old!
Of course, the song is not an original Brooks track, because it was written by Bob Dylan. Billy Joel was actually the first artist to release it in 1997, with Dylan’s version following later that same year.
Brooks’ version of the song was released in 1998, and is now regarded as one of the greatest country love songs of all time.
At Clarkson’s request, Brooks delivered an impromptu, acoustic cover of “To Make You Feel My Love” on the set of her talk show. It didn’t take long for tears to form in Clarkson’s eyes. As the title of the performance’s official YouTube video states, she was “weeping” by the end of the song.
You can see Brooks move Clarkson to tears with “To Make You Feel My Love” by watching the video below. This song always gets to us, so we don’t blame Clarkson for becoming a bit emotional!
