Kelly Clarkson Don't Rush Single Cover Artwork

Kelly Clarkson‘s upcoming greatest hits album, Greatest Hits — Chapter One, has already spawned one major single — the reflective, inspirational midtempo “Catch My Breath” — but Clarkson isn’t content to corner just one part of the market. Having already met with significant success for her Jason Aldean collaboration, “Don’t You Wanna Stay,” the chanteuse is releasing a country single from her greatest hits compilation as well. For this track, titled “Don’t Rush,” Clarkson teamed up with country crooner Vince Gill for a duet that’s as sensuous and lush as anything in Clarkson’s catalog. Hear “Don’t Rush” below.

In “Don’t Rush,” Clarkson — a Texas native, lest you forget — imbues her restrained vocals with an additional twang that’s perfectly suited for the country instrumentation. “Just hanging on every touch, baby don’t rush,” Clarkson sings on the sweet chorus. As with her Aldean duet, having a sparring partner brings Clarkson’s impressively emotive vocals to life, and Gill proves a more-than-capable mate — even if the yearning of her Aldean duet was perhaps more powerful.

The song’s breezy soft-rock sound feels a little neutered, but it’s also pretty likable — and even if we love our Clarkson with claws, we don’t need her to be so edgy all the time.

  1. Jordan

    love it.

  2. Really good… I love this! Throwback to old country… but with a modern twist.

  3. Jay

    Rock, Pop, R&B & Country. What can’t this woman sing and sound like she has always sung that genre?!

    When I hear Titanium I always think what Kelly’s vocals would sound on that song. Not like I’m suggesting her and Guetta work together, I cringe at his work these days – but she is just perfection.

  4. David

    This is so great… She can sing it all. It would be great to see her do a full country inspired album.
