Kelly Clarkson Puts Some Twang in Greatest Hits Album

She includes “Don’t Rush,” the duet Kelly did with Vince Gill on the CMA Awards show.

You know that Kelly Clarkson is a Texas native who lives in Nashville now. And heck, the girl is even dating Reba's stepson.

How much more country can a pop star get?

Well, Kelly is now country enough to include two duets with country stars on her first greatest-hits album, Greatest Hits: Chapter One, which comes out Monday (Nov. 19).

There is her hit with Jason Aldean, "Don't You Wanna Stay." And Kelly is also including the showstopping song she did with Vince Gill on the CMA Awards show, "Don't Rush." (Note to country singers who want to pitch duets with Kelly Clarkson: Put the word "Don't" in the song title and you'll have a better shot.)

Kelly calls "Don't Rush" a "sexy retro-country song."

"As soon as I heard it, I put the song on hold," she said in a statement.

"Love should be celebrated, and this is a great description of where I'm at in my life," she added. "This is a couple's skate, not an all-skate song."
