It’s no secret that 2020 has not been the best year for entertainer Kelly Clarkson. Since announcing her divorce from husband and manager Brandon Blackstock, she has spoken openly on her daytime talk show about the challenging time she has experienced. Most recently, Kelly Clarkson spoke with country superstar Garth Brooks about how his music is helping her cope with her divorce.
Kelly Clarkson featured the Grammy-winning Garth Brooks on The Kelly Clarkson Show as a special guest this week, and the two mega-stars spoke on not only Brooks' historic career, but also about going through a high-profile divorce while trying to protect their children. During their chat, Clarkson revealed how Brooks’ signature song “The Dance” is helping her at this difficult moment.
Kelly Clarkson went on to explain that, even though she's known the song very well for most of her life, its actual message didn’t resonate with her until after the divorce proceedings started. In her words:
While it's nice to know music is helping Clarkson through the moment, she has also talked on her show about going to therapy to cope with the emotions related to her divorce. She has even mentioned placing her children in therapy for the same reason. This seems more understanding given recent developments with her soon-to-be-ex and his father, regarding finances and child support.
Since coming back to her talk show, the singer has spoken a few times about her divorce inspiring her current music. Like many musicians, Clarkson’s best music seems to follow a major breakup. I mean this is the same woman who sang hits such as “Never Again,” “Behind These Hazel Eyes” and the iconic sing-along breakup anthem “Since You’ve Been Gone.” We'll just have to wait and see if any big hits come from this unfortunate time in Clarkson's life.
