Creating good music is what artists usually do, especially if they want to inspire other people. Kelly Clarkson and Vince Gill just did that when they had a collaboration to create a masterpiece. Also, they had to break the barrier with the traditionalists. In my opinion, this is a stepping stone for other artists to be unafraid to come out of their comfort zones and try new things
“The Icon and the Idol”
Kelly Clarkson was the first winner of the famous American reality show “American Idol.” Thus, winning the said competition opened a lot of opportunities for her. Her versatility and her dynamic vocal range were incomparable, making her distinct from all other artists. With this, she shut down her critics with her hit after hit singles and crossing over from pop to country. This woman is not afraid to try new things, and she really proves that she can be a master of all genres.
Vince Grant Gill also known as Vince Gill is an American singer-songwriter and he is also a multi-instrumentalist. Further, he rose in the 70’s with his country rock genre and the distinct emotion he is putting into his songs. Also, Vince climbed the music ladder swiftly because of his chart-topping songs. We can say that the public was in love with him and his music.
“Don’t Rush” was recorded by Kelly Clarkson in 2012 and she also featured the country superstar Vince Gill. The song was included on Clarkson’s album “Greatest Hits- Chapter One.” In addition, the masterpiece “Don’t Rush” was influenced by country soul and soft rock. This creation only shows that Clarkson can also create a country masterpiece aside from pop music. “Don’t Rush” had a mixture of 70’s and 80’s vibe. Anyway, the song had its first live performance in the 46th Annual Country Association Awards, in which it was loved by the audience. Even though it did not reach no.1, the song still was a famous piece by the two legends.
On the other hand, Kelly Clarkson and Vince Gill got positive reviews from critics. Well, whatever superstars do, they will be criticized by this so-called “experts,” if you know what I mean. Still, it’s a great song I enjoyed, and I hope you do too.
