Kelly Clarkson Outperforms American Idol Alums; Sets New Sales Record As She Continues To Embrace Country Music

I’ve said for a long time now that Kelly Clarkson has talent.  In a society where reality television too often awards contestants recording contracts when they shouldn’t, Clarkson has been a refreshing breathe of fresh air – delivering on the promise.

It was reported this week that Kelly Clarkson has now surpassed her fellow American Idol alumni in sales figures;  Her single “(What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You) Stronger” has sold more copies than any other single released by a former contestant of that television show.

At the same time, Clarkson is re-embracing her country roots – if she really ever left them.  Born in Texas, Kelly is a natural fit on the country charts and is seeming to have good success there.  A duet with Jason Aldean a year or so ago was a genuine hit, and now her remixed version of “Mr Know It All” is giving her a solo country winner.
