Kelly Clarkson’s Career Still Hot, Tour Dates Announced

kelly-clarkson-heartbeat-song-2015-billboard-650She may hate people referencing her American Idol roots, but the “OG” Texan winner of the FOX talent series that featured stand up comic Brian Dunkleman with a young Ryan Seacrest back in 2002 blew the doors off the entire reality competition genre. We witnessed Kelly Clarkson sing this winning song, and then go on to a truly rewarding solo career:

On the release date of her sixth studio album Piece By Piece, Kelly Clarkson released the dates for her extensive tour of North America in 2015. The Piece By Piece tour boasts 36 dates and features special guests Pentatonix and Eric Hutchinson.

Tickets go on sale to general public on Saturday, March 14, but pre-sale tickets are available to members of Clarkson’s free online fan club or Citi card members.

Clarkson was interviewed by Billboard during a chat about her new album, and she laid to rest the out of context remarks that painted her as difficult and unwilling to collaborate with other major artists want to collaborate with her on a song.

Piece, due out Tuesday (Mar. 3) through RCA Records — sees the singer dueting with John Legend among others.
