Kelly Clarkson let Garth Brooks try out her fan-favourite “Kellyoke” segment on “The Kelly Clarkson Show”.
The country legend, 57, joined Clarkson on Monday’s episode and discussed which songs he prefers to cover.
While playing around with his guitar, Brooks confessed, “I think it’s the stuff that they’re not expecting… I’m the last of six kids, mom and dad had their different tastes. So yeah, you’re going to hear George Strait, you’re going to hear [Sammy] Hagar, but you’re also going to hear [Otis Redding].”
And before Clarkson, 37, knew it, Brooks launched into a snippet of James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain”, which, fun fact, inspired his classic track, “The River”.
But it was Brooks’ taste of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” that got Clarkson to well up in tears. “If you would have told me as a kid that that moment would have happened? I’m sorry,” she gushed. “I just can’t believe my life sometimes, that you’re just sitting here serenading me.”
Brooks later chatted about his wife, Trisha Yearwood, and daughters, Allie, Taylor and August, with Sandy Mahl.
